Usually the people that are in your way are people with 3 letters in the license plate. One Letter, like S for Stuttgart or F for Frankfurt represent big cities, and are more acustomed to autobahn driving. Two letters, like BA for Bamberg or SW for Schweinfurt, are also well acustomed to autobahn driving as well. It is the 3 letter little towns (NUE or WAK for example), usually in the country away from major roads that are terrible drivers for the most part. But yes, compared to North America, the highway flow is usually much more efficient.
Here is an example of what I meant....
1 Letter (Major City of Frankfurt):
Two Letters would have two before the registration stickers, and three would obviously have three.
