    It is illegal to run out of fuel in autobahn because it is viewed as an avoidable circumstance.

    Wow, I didn't know that so many German words are used in English.

    Is it illegal in general, or in a certain country? I'm not aware that this is not legal on highways in Austria.

    It is applicable for Germany. It is a road designed for driving as fast as you can. There are speed cameras, though only to spot the ones not driving fast enough. Actually, there is no law against running out of fuel, but stopping unnecessarily on a superfast highway is a crime, and that includes running out of fuel!

    The autobahn is now the fourth largest singular superhighway system after US, China and Spain.

    That's what confused me. Our highways are also called autobahn, but we have a speed limit. And we have speed cameras, but to see who's too fast. :) Btw, there are speed limits in Germany as well, in some areas.
    Thanks! :)

    A baboon called Jack was working as signalman in Uitenhage, South Africa, more than 100 years ago. He never made a mistake, and was working for the railroad, helping his owner who had lost both feet, until he died.
