One thing you notice very quickly in the UK and Europe is that lane discipline 
is much, much better on motorways/autoroutes and because of it, traffic flows 
very much better (and faster and safer). I was told that it's because the 'no 
undertaking' rule is policed and accepted  and so, if you're out there in the 
fast lane, you get blasted by someone behind and you damn well know why. Here, 
even the concept of a fast lane, cruising lane and slow lane is unfamiliar. It 
seems to be the law both in the US and Oz - all we have to do is police it.
