  bad quality pic not worth the EUR 20,-
by RhineRoll

It might be an original way to have your picture taken -- a great souvenir of your racing experience on the Autobahn. However, as you can see, you get a rather bad quality for a pretty high price. My suggestion thus would be to try to not get caught speeding on German motorways. In case you wonder why it is possible to speed when there is no speed limit, let me tell you that there are thousands of speed limits on the Autobahn -- in cities, on dangerous sections, at roadworks -- there just isn't a general speed limit! As a European perpetrator do not count on the ticket being killed due to your foreign residency -- the European Union is working very hard to deliver tickets to your doorstep regardless of where you live.

At least, as you can see, your privacy is respected -- the pic just shows the driver so that you are spared from the possible additional trouble of "Mr/Mrs. Right" opening the daily mail and finding out you were doing a little secret sightseeing trip with "Mr./Mrs Right Now".
