With great respect: I know you feel quite strongly about this when you started it a month ago. It ran for a few days, and interested parties had their say, then it had ran its course. I don’t think many people will have changed their minds, so I can’t see much point flogging a dead horse.Well the thing is I would have let it go but in the last two days alone in the local East Bournemouth press there have been three instances of bad and dangerous driving involving German car drivers, I'm not making this up but if you go through the whole of last year in my local paper all I would say at least 80% of road accidents involve a German car in one way or another, not all but most. I honestly feel there is a problem with the amount of power the cars have or the drivers, it can't just be an issue in my area alone. Take a look at this,

Not a high powered car I know, but German all the same. This was in yesterday's paper.
You don't want to live in the Lake District, taxi drivers shoot you up there!Maybe you need to move to the Lake District? Maybe that paper has a bug on German cars? Around here, pickups with big engines and Lexus mommy vans are far bigger risks than German sedans.
I really have no opinion either way on stepped licencing for cars, but the 42 mile per day round trip to work, along a 70mph carriageway has made me notice a few things. I get cut up at least twice a week by people changing lanes in the middle of a roundabout, more frequently I get someone attempting to squeeze his car up my exhaust when I'm already either on, or breaking the speed limit myself to overtake, and not forgetting the multiple lane crosser, who comes out of the fast lane, straight across to get off on a slip road. No signalling or warning that they are about to do this at all.Maybe that paper has a bug on German cars?
I'm glad somebody else has noticed this as well, I was beginning to think I was the only one.There are two things I noticed about all these incidents, firstly, almost every single one has been a German car, either a BMW, Audi or VW. Secondly, at the risk of sounding sexist I'd say that a lot more than half of the 'cutter uppers' are women.

They, can't plan ahead and tell everyone they are safe drivers cause they drive "safe" (caused marketing convinced them so) carspeople changing lanes in the middle of a roundabout
