Can't resist a comment about the Germans on this one - I was a passenger in a
Mercedes flagship back in the early 1980s when a truck pulled out on the
Autobahn and forced the driver to brake VERY hard indeed - clouds of blue
Without any animosity or anger whatever, he sued the truck company the next day
for the cost of new tyres. And won - the case wasn't even contested.
