    Greek drivers

    by Joe_Atiyah Written Jul 15, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Greek Drivers You must understand that it is forbidden for Greek drivers to have both hands on the steering wheel. One hand must always be free for eating, drinking, gesticulating, or – mostly – for the mobile phone. On no account must it be placed on the steering wheel. This particularly applies to bus drivers while traversing hair pin bends on mountainous routes. Just shut your eyes, or look firmly out of the window.

    The horn, you realise, is not for warning other drivers or pedestrians, it is merely a device for saying hello to the numerous locals who are known to the driver.

    Another thing to remember is that whenever two Greeks have a conversation, it sounds like an argument – even if they are just talking about the weather.
