It's that time of year when hordes of Italians pour over the border
in their cars and camper vans and suddenly turn into the worst drivers
on the planet.

It's an annual event that is a miracle to behold.


Laugh at the traffic chaos as they try to go under low arches
and pass through narrow old town streets in huge camper vans
that they probably only drive once or twice a year.

Marvel at the ingenious places they park up at night to cause
maximum inconvenience to all.

Wonder why they act like timid sheep whilst outside Italy.


:confused:

Do they have beam deflectors? I bet they don't! It's only the Brits who fit beam deflectors.. :(

They're not needed travelling to France from Italy. My understanding is that we need them abroad because our lights dip to the left and would thus dazzle oncoming drivers. Apparently European lights dip straight down with no right hand offset so no need for deflectors when they are in UK.

Not sure if this is correct - maybe Nev can confirm.

Saw quite a few Italian campers in Cognac last week, looking very lost.:lol:

As opposed to the French who maintain this accolade the rest of the year? :p

The French may laugh at the Italians once or twice a year.

The Italians laugh at the French all year round. :lol:

It's the Swiss that are the bad boys abroad.

All very well behaved....

.... until they cross the Franco-Swiss border, then they unleash
car- and bike- geddon.
