To be honest, I am glad the OP has not been let loose yet. The OP sounds like a real menace. Driving in a bus lane, not stopping at a stop and speeding in a built up area.... and then not actually accepting that these things could be showstoppers....

Not sure that with that attitude the psych analyst will give the green light either after two years.
The psych analyst already did: <<Then I went to Idiotentest, which I passed>>

While OP seems to have a strange attitude to how to perform in an exam - or is trolling - I just had somebody rolling over the stop-line in front of me the other day.
Fact is: If we took everybody who can't drive properly off the streets we would no longer have a traffic-jam-problem.

Agreed, but no need to make it easy for new members of the club!

I know I've repeated this many times before and the logic is probably flawed but I never speed in town because I would have a tough time dealing with seriously injuring (or worse, killing) someone and spending the rest of my life wondering if those 5 or 10 km/h over made the difference.
Cruise control makes no sense in towns. The only type of road you can get a 20CHF speeding fine is on the motorway and Autostrasse.

Cruise control doesn't, the option where the speed gets limited to a set max is great tho in urban areas with flashpoints.

Re: Failed 4th driving test - need to wait 2 years

An average car has something in the order of 30000 individual parts. One of the ways of keeping all of them attached to the car is to pay attention to things like speed limits and stop signs. This is a great way to save money, and prolong the use of the car.

It's also a great way to avoid running into or over other things, like children, or pets, or pedestrians.

Re: Failed 4th driving test - need to wait 2 years

This might be a dumb question because we are in Switzerland after all but presumably there will be admin costs associated with making an appeal which the OP would be liable for should she choose to go down that route?

Absolutely. And as she's gonna lose the case, she will pay.

I definitely don't think that I am. But looking around I don't think that many people driving the Swiss roads are better drivers than me.

Dunning-Kruger effect says you can't judge your own skills correctly.

I'm being polite but please read between the lines...

Yea, the whole thing was sweet. As I mentioned on the Douche Bandit thread, we're seeing the burgeoning of a 21st century narrative art form.
