It's an easteuropean thing in general. You would not believe what a nightmare getting a drivers' license around here is, considering it's perfectly normal to have 6 people cut you off, 2 nearly hit you and at least one try to get you to hit him in the back for insurance money withing 5 minutes of leaving the house. Also, there's the gypsies, who pose a completely different problem. Hope you like horse ****, by the way.

As a citizen of Macedonia, I can confirm that all of this is true, though not to the extent of which it was described.
The statistics he described are way over the top. Within 5 minutes you can only get cut off 2-3 times, near-miss are like 1-2 per week and insurance set-ups happen once or twice per driver's life.

The gypsies are a royal pain though, words cannot express how much they **** **** up. They are justifyingly called trash ******* around my parts.

>steal bikes
>steal hubcaps from cars
>go through garbage cans to find something useful to them while tossing everything out of the container, onto the street
>live in disgusting "houses" made of scrap metal, bricks, cardboard, etc.
>don't bathe, smell horrible up to around 3 metres radius
>shoplift
>beg for money/food/cigarettes (the young ones threaten to spit on you if you don't give them, knowing that most people will not hit them since they're little)
>more than 50% of the small time household robberies are done by gypsies, the other highest group being drug addicts (of which at least 20% are gypsies)

1. I'm not russian.
2. It's very tightly monitored, there's a camera installed in each instructors' car along with a microphone and you'd have to bribe around 6-7 people if you count the health and safety course.

*****, have you ever even tried to get a license?

Your instructor instructs you, teaches you.
The commission decides whether or not you pass.
It's consisted of 2-4 people whom you drive around the place you live.
I'd like to see you try and bribe them all.

Yes in the UK. More than a few Russians tell me that it's not uncommon for people in their country to bribe their way into a license.

It might not be uncommon, but it sure as hell ain't easy or common, people bribe their way to a licence just about as much as they bribe their way into anything else, it ain't easy, and not everyone can/will do it.

Eh, depends on the type of gypsies. I live on the outskirts of the gypsy neighborhood and they're actually pretty cool. They mostly just go through trash cans and do jobs no one else wants It's the ones that aren't local that are asses, since they just come to steal. Hence, why all you see in western Europe is the **** kind - they're not locals. They're not there to settle down. They're there for the sole purpose of stealing as much as they can and bringing it back home.

Step 1: imagine a typical ghetto ******
Step 2: take away 95% of his money
Step 3: make him either catholic or muslim
Step 4: replace his vehicles with a horse carriage

You've got yourself a balkan gypsy, head to toe.

P.S. their young breathe glue vapor and smoke cigarettes starting around the age of 2 - 3 years old.

The thing is I don't think that that's a gypsy thing in particular.

That's just being an uneducated , closed-off little **** and anyone can be that. It's just that, from what I see, traditional east-EU gypsy culture practically requires them to be closed-off and uneducated... Hence why they are a massive nuisance.

Yeah, I've visited Canada before and it was pretty much the same driving wise. However, then I visited France and the streets are lined with cars on both sides so there's only enough room for one car to drive through the middle of the street, and the people I was with drove really fast through it. I don't know what would've been done if we had came upon another car coming the opposite direction. Plus, it's custom for people to leave their cars in neutral instead of park when they turn it off so people can shove their cars forward/backward when they're trying to park in front/behind them (Or at least that's what I was told). To be fair, this was all by Paris, but even in big cities in America that doesn't go on.

With your first comment you generalised the whole world by saying all other than USA and Canada sucked at driving. I'm just trying to maybe let you think out of those cynical thoughts of yours. Did you even think of Denmark, Sweden and Norway? There are plenty of countries in Europe who knows how to drive.

Please show me where I said that, because I didn't. You're just coming off as massively butthurt because I asked a question. I said what I said because of what I've seen what people say about their own countries or countries near them, not what I think because France is the only place I'd be able to give a somewhat accurate decision on how they drive based off my own experience. I'm not being cynical at all, you just need to calm down.

No, it's not that they're more polite - it's just that the police is a lot more present in the US and here in Western Europe than it is there. Also, people here all can afford getting a drivers license (i don't know about america, but here you have to pay around 2000 € including polyphase training), while a lot of people there drive without a license and proper training.

Ahh, that police presence is a good point. And in America there's no cost for getting your driver's license, you just have to pay for your behind the wheel training, which is usually managed by your high school and costs a couple hundred dollars, it's nothing really expensive. But yeah, back to that police presence thing, if you drive like an asshole here you WILL get caught within the first couple times you do it, depending on how heavily populated the area is.
