comment In which European countries do I have to have a country indicator on my car?
How does this answer my question? I have neither a EU license plate nor a Swiss license plate. I really don't know why this got so many upvotes.

comment Why do trucks pass each other on the highway?
Truck drivers are generally under great time pressure and they are happy about every 5 minutes they can gain by overtaking a truck that is only slightly slower. Bear in mind that if you drive hundreds of kilometers each day, a speed difference of 4-5 km/h might result in a considerable time gain. Additionally, there are sections on most highways were overtaking of trucks is prohibited.

@drat I wouldn't call these restaurants really upscale. Or would you call a restaurant where you pay around 30 CHF (~30 Euros) for a main dish as upscale?

You seem to have completely different experience than I have. Maybe you work and go to other restaurants than I do. But just now, a third answer about Sweden also confirmed the credit card tipping approach.

I arrive to that conclusion by living in these countries, going to restaurants and seeing other people paying, as well as by talking to friends who do it exactly the same way. Check Dr Banana's answer which also supports my opinion.
