As much as I have been enjoying your country and its inhabitants I have to ask: Where the fuck did you guys learn to drive?
Seriously, you all have no concept of: indicating; staying in your own lane; keeping appropriate distance from the car in front of you or beside you. I have spent so much time on the road in abject fear of my fellow drivers, nor have I ever been side-swiped at 120km/hr before (luckily only light contact was made and my mirror did more damage to his paint than he did to me, but still...), and I have never been tailgated so closely in my life (I swear I have BMW and Fiat imprints in my ass).
Thankfully I have now returned my rental-car and my blood-pressure is slowly returning to normal. I'm in Florence now and its great. I've still got Rome and Naples to come.
I hope some of this is taken to heart. :gaysign:
