I believe the US Cop inflation is at fault for causing unnecessary ticketing to the general public. I had my share of parking & speeding tickets, and itís no fun being stopped on the side of the road, made to look like a violator.
Thatís why I have to say; Italy has once again made driving a pleasure for me, from winding roads to almost non existent law enforcement, its all good here. These are the roads your BMW were built upon.
But, watch out for the Carabinieri (Italian Military Police), by law they are allowed to shoot their trusty machine guns your way, if you don't stop for the lollipop (hand held stop sign).
