Driving in Athens

You drive on the right-hand side of the road in Greece. There are lanes but, like in India, lines are frequently ignored.  Unlike India there are no cows roaming across the road and horn-blowing is infrequent.  The numbered signs that have the appearance of speed limits, similar to the design of speed limit signs in other countries, display numbers that are about half the speed of the traffic flying past.  Overtaking is at your convenience, double-white lines are irrelevant.  We spent several kilometres driving out of Delphi behind a black Toyota ute, the driver facing his passenger rather than the road, and gently swerving to the right and crossing nearly completely off the road, before gently over-correcting to swerve across the double-white lines marking the centre of the road.
