3rd world driving, but its getting better

Czech drivers are far more politer than South Africans, but thats not saying much, driving in JHB South Africa means risking your life, in Czech its not near as dramatic as that, but its still a hardy little country, full of hardy little people, people who although are not usually armed, have very little consideration for the next on the road.

Since Czech have entered the EU, I think there is pressure on the Czech people to become more “Western”, basically more civilized, and this also means they’re going to need to learning to drive like westerners. The transition is slow, but its noticable, there are still a great deal of old cars on the road, but its nothing like Romania. Czech traffic police are active, and seem to pull you over randomly for spot checks on a regular basis.
