Traffik, Law and Weather
If you comes to Greece, look for a relevant (!!!) card for the terretorium you want to drive. A big very exact card from Epirus you will get from 500,- to 600,- GRD.
The Greeks take off you very close, but they do not cut you. Often they friendly sound their horn to say "I am here". They take care if they bend and will wait till you are over.
If you drive behind another vehicle (or in a group) you should take more distance as in Austria or Germany. Suddenly braking will bring you in difficults.
Permanent crossing eyes
is the best - once at the street, her grooves, stonefall or holes
and ground waves also for the crumbled, hanging verges - otherwards
to the bushes and meadows at the roadside. It is always possible
an animal will jump on the street to cross it.
Also the turtle, we see in Parga, was not fast enough, also so many cats and dogs and the beautiful fox at the E55.
Speedlimits, dobble lines and stop signs are recomandation, as long no police is here. New in Greece is radar and it is in use.
A young, long time in Germany living Greek told us, he needed eight months to surround to the slippery streets from Greece. Another told us if it is beginning to rain, drink a cup of coffee and after the first downpour you can drive again, but slowly!
After Rudi repaired the TZR, we like to bike, from Parga to Ioannina little streets and over the mountains - but inhabitants tell us the streets are too bad for our bikes. With Enduros we would have our fun.
