It's no the same, but I took plenty of bus rides in college and that's about the same distance up as a truck driver. You're right, people do some amazing things in their cars. We went through Dallas during rush hour once and we saw people shaving, putting on makeup, etc., in their cars.

The real problem is almost zero driver training required in order to get a license in the USA. Also combined with the loss of vehicle inspections in many states means unskilled drivers are out there operating unsafe vehicles that drive unstable and could have a mechanical failure at any moment.
I see a horrific crash about once a week here in FL, sometimes more. When I lived in Europe for 3 months I saw 1 crash total, and it was a criminal fleeing a robbery.

Nice, those Swedish cars last forever when properly taken car of. Try and get a service manual in English to help you make it last.

The world would be a better place if automatic transmissions had never been invented.

What gets me is when people run red lights or stop signs or cut you off and you almost hit them and honk and they act like im the one who did something wrong. I had a sixteen year old hit me once while she was texting and she got pissed at me because I made her stop and she was late for school.
Pay attention people and get your faces outta your phone while driving.
