back from a very nice trip to UK a few days ago , and I thought it would be good to let you know some of the differences I noticed between the two countries !
1 - Never seen a smurf (cop) in the streets in the 10 days I was there !
2 - The sidewalks are no more than 10 cm high !
3 - You can modify any car in any way and still be legal if you do the basics on it.
4 - There are zebra crossings EVERYWHERE and drivers actually STOP
5 - You dont have to pay TAX on an already taxed car from the EU
6 - If you feel like driving, you can get your car in the morning and drive to France for some snails or whatever
7 - Most people are very friendly and always helpful
8 - Road tax is quite cheap but insurance is a bit steep
1- There is a smurf everywhere you look. If you pick up a stone from the pavement, there will be a cop underneath !
2 - Our sidewalks are either non existent or I cant see them, or in the case where there is a sidewalk, its about as tall as mount Everest !
3 - If you even think about changing the wheels on your car into some nice alloys, they will take your car and send you to court !
4 - I think I've seen some zebra crossings somewhere. I tried getting across one day and I caused an accident
5 - You have to pay TAX on the already taxed car that you paid for, and then you have to pay VAT tax on that tax you already paid twice
6 - If you feel like driving, you get in your car and an hour later you will be in Pafos
Then if your car cant swim , your trip is over !
7 - You can say " Hello " as long and as loud as you want to !!! I CANT HEAR YOU !!!
8 - You can probably get away with cheap-ish insurance, but you still have to pay 220 Euro a year for a 20 year old Alfa 33
Please feel free to correct me where you think I'm wrong and please feel free to add anything I might have forgotten
