Germans(Bayern) and US citizens (most of all New Yorkers, Rhod Islanders, Massachusetters). To consumption: It is widely known that US aren't thumb-screwed to save anything. Their cars aren't so economized how it is usually in Europe. And US citizens don't want to save. For example: two neighbours work for the same company. They start and finish their work at the same time. But it is impossible to go to the work together. Germans on the other side use more economized cars, but their motorways don't use any speed limits, so they drive more speedily and the consumption is higher. To safety: Both nations drive more safety than in the Czech Republic. But with respect to laws americans drive more safety than Germans. (To stop all trafic because of yellow school bus stopping ....??) I was suprised at behaviour of drivers on motorways in the USA. No one was driving like crazy and everybody was keeping the speed limit 65 mph. Bye Horyna Do budoucna preji ALLES GUTE ! HORYNA v.r.
