I did my share of passing on these roads and the 335d instilled nothing but confidence in doing so, but I also wasn't in a hurry to be a statistic.
I did see this too, and more so in Italy with some very tight squeezes. These people had balls to do some of the passes I saw and wouldn't have attempted.

I also noticed Italians had more of a tendency to ignore people at crosswalks. In Germany and so forth they stop for anyone, but in Italy they kept driving unless they were already in the street.
