I'm not allowed to drive in Italy - I start at road rage and escalate from there.

The Rome drivers are first rate safe drivers compared to those in Naples, you haven't driven till you have driven through it. Then there is India, best not even try

Never quite made it to Naples. Furthest south I have driven in Italy is about half way between Rome and Naples. Never been to India and probably wouldn't consider driving there. Driven a fair bit in Portugal and Spain without any issues. Maybe just lucky.

For flips sake man that is prime Italian driving, wave hands, make gestures and honk your horn, they will think you are a local.
