The view from 50°0'N 8°16'EMoguntiacum, Mayence, Määnz, Meenz, Mainz.....
Thanks for the translation it made me smile too.
I have to preface this by saying that I'm a nerd. :-) Your comment made me look "gear" up in the OED, and there they list "gear down (or up)" as phrasal verbs to mean "to change to a lower (higher) gear". So, in fact, the translation seems to be spot on this time!
I've never driven on a long, steep, winding hill and wouldn't know how to do it. If I ever encountered a sign like this, I'd stop the car and call a taxi.
I usually close my eyes, wave a white stick out of the window and blow the horn. People tend to leap out of the way quite smartly...
1 in 10 even though it may be twisty and long isn't particularly steep -- I used to tackle 1 in 5s with ease and even once a 1 in 3
