You are clearly not a motorcyclist.
That's not quite fair. The poster just talked about what studies have indicated. It's almost a cliche that most drivers consider themselves better than average when clearly they can't be. Some motorcyclists are pretty bad as well; although I fully agree that the average motorcyclist is usually much better at road craft than the average motorist.

My view of Swiss motorists is that they can be a bit dopey, but in general are (sometimes over-) cautious and safe. That may irritate a more sophisticated driver; but, as someone who cycles far more than he drives these days, that's pretty much as good as it gets.

5) Manufactures and owners should pay penalty charges, for any equipment that takes driving control away from the driver, such as automatic gearboxes, cruise control, power steering, park assist, etc.
Here is the ideal car!
