and by the way, ticket prices(ie the ones you get for speeding) went up in alot of countries this year(I think EU thing). Plus Germany, which actually had the cheapest ticket prices, is now in line with the other EU countries; sooooo
remember the following:
Normally, 100 KM/h on highways
50 KM/h in cities and towns(when you go into every town there will be a sign with its name on it, when you leave it will have the name and a diagonal line through it)
German autobahn: 120-130 in many places now, unless it gives you the black and white lollipop with line through it, which means fun time!!
If you get a ticket, it will probably be by camera, so watch it.
Watch the speed in construction zones, they will crush you on this one.
Dont drink and drive, you will not be happy with the Polizei giving you a blood test on the spot, and 1 German Beer will put you over the limit!!!!!! Try a Radler(essentially Sprite and Beer-I have almost gotten used to it). They will really really really crush you on this one. Have the beers after you settle in for the night!!
You are arriving at the busiest time of year on roads here, ie most Europeans take vacation from late July-mid Sept. Be prepared for a Stau(traffic jams).
Take the Landstrasses(basically the old main routes before the autobahns where built), they are fast, good roads, and no Staus!! They will be much prettier too.
