Made this video back in 2004 (before we quit GZ), but after Scott and I had
built a few more cars. Will, Brian, Scott, and me in 500-700hp+ SFWD Hondas
playing on the freeway! Scott and I had a bigger gate spring in and
couldn't get our Boost below 24lbs,
even with the controller turned off... Consequently we were getting
Why you always have to pay attention on the Autobahn (see description)
This white van driver wanted to go directly from the Autobahn entrance to
the left lane without looking into the side mirror at first. I flashed him
and at the last moment he changed his mind.
A personal remark to all the smart-asses out there: Yes, I'm driving fast
in the video but it's perfectly legal, because at that point there is NO
speed limit. German Autobahn is without a general speed limit. And yes,
that was a crititical situation - which was defused by me. Nothing
happened. Nothing at all.
But for those, who like to bitch about me being too fast and speed being a
killer anyway, here are some statistical numbers. Source of the numbers is
- In 2011, 31 % of all traffic in Germany went on Autobahns. Yet only 6.4 %
of all accidents happened there and only 11.3 % of deaths on the road
- Of those 11.3 % of all dead people in Germany, 47.1 % were truck and van
drivers. Only 14.2 % were car drivers. Should tell you something about
who's driving worst here.
- In contrast to that, 60.9 % of all fatal accidents in Germany happened on
country roads, where a general speed limit of 100 km/h exists.
In conclusion, the Autobahn, thanks to good maintenance and an in general
good behaviour of traffic participants, is one of the safest roads in the
world - despite the lack of a general speed limit.
The average speed on the Autobahn is about 120 km/h, which makes a speed
limit unncessary anyway. All demands for introducing a speed limit so far
failed at the attempt, because there is absolutely no rational reason to
If you want to know my opinion: It is legal to drive fast on the Autobahn.
If certain people can't deal with that, feel unsafe or insecure because of
that, they are unfit for using the Autobahn in my book.
