British Drivers are Insane

I took a trip to England a few months ago, many months ago. I noticed then how insane the drivers are. What triggered this thread was an episode of Monty Python where I noticed how insane these drivers are.

You people are insane. You drive in the middle of a city 60 miles per hour, on roads barely wider than your car! One of my relatives over there drives 75 mph, in the middle of London!

You drive on the right side of the road, UP HILLS!

You speed up to 20 mph to move one foot, then break 2 feet behind another car! And then, there are the ones who don't even wear seatbelts.

And please, tell me this is wrong. Is it actually part of the driving test to back up around a corner?

I hear you guys have a good healthcare system, though. Is that why you feel you can be so wreckless?

I don't know, this may be rant, but I'm not angry about anything. This may or may not belong in the pit. It just blows my mind how insane the drivers in England are.
