A strange idea just struck me right now. What's up in the United States that makes people from other countries living there to change their behavior. For example, Filipinos. Filipinos like to beat the red light but when they come to the US they now do full stop even with no traffic in sight. They have learned to greet their next door neighbor but when they are in the Philippines, they don't even bother. There are a lot of changes. How about other people from other countries? What is your experience?

I think if you come to the us you should change your ways and obay our laws. If you dont want to change your ways somewhat then stay where you are. When the tourists visit other countries we have to learn the languge and obay your laws. Same thing

Well I'm glad that they do change their behaviour when it comes to stopping at red lights. That's a great change of behaviour. Lloyd
