It’s time to hit the frog’n’toad

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Inside -

GER­MANY’S roads pro­vide a very dif­fer­ent driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to those of this coun­try. First of all, the Fed­eral Repub­lic’s back tracks are su­pe­rior to our free­ways in terms of sur­face qual­ity and sig­nage. Sec­ond, Ger­mans ac­tu­ally earn their li­cences through hard prac­tice and rig­or­ous prac­ti­cal tests, so they drive to an ex­pert stan­dard and are trusted to go safely at speeds that would hor­rify Aus­tralia’s al­leged safety ex­perts. But the main dif­fer­ence is they avoid run­ning over toads, whereas we swerve to get the bas­tards.
