Here in south-western Germany, as you know, me and others have been very active and the confirmation is there!
The latest statistics in Germany about cars accidents and the death toll is up 15% compared to last year. It's up for the first time in about 30 years.
But where I live (Baden-Wuerttemberg) it's actually slightly down. The traffic is there and the economy is running at a decent speed, definitely it is not due to less traffic here. This region of Germany is the powercenter of the economy and there was probably more traffic here than elsewhere.
Sometimes you must continue the gifting until finally you can see the results, and they last. I urge everyone who feels to fail (nobody does) just to continue and the success will be there.
