Just got back from France, their roads are fantastic. Can't remember seeing or hitting a single pothole, even right in the middle of the country. Why the useless councils over here can't repair our roads properly I don't know? After living and driving in London the lack of traffic jams was a nice relief as well. The only thing that really got to me though was the french love to tailgate, all of them young, old, male or female. And I don't hang around on the road, maybe they just wanted to see what an Accord looked like because I never saw another one over there. The only other Honda I saw was a english registered Civic.
