Yeah, I played some SimCity 4 with Rush Hour, with the Network Addon Mod of course. Also there's another mod, the RHW-mod, it allows you to build realistic 2x2,3x2 motorways.

I gave up because I was tired of fixing dependencies .

Hey guys, check this out: http://www.citiesxl.com/

This will probably be far more realistic than SimCity. It also has many goodies for us traffic fans!

Well if we get someone else who witnesses a truck with Maltese plates within the next few days, I think we can assume so.

The Poles are taking over the Netherlands. I probably see more Polish cars in one day than all other foreign cars combined. About trucks i'm not so sure, but you see them a lot too. There used to be a lot of German trucks, but they are possibly replaced with Polish ones.

I think the number of Ukrainian/Russian trucks are increasing too. Contrary to popular belief, they are usualy very new and clean, and not those old stinking wrecks.

^ I see very few cars with Ukrainian plates, not even so many trucks, which is odd for a 47-million nation. I even see more Russian plates.

A dutch tv-programme, called Wegmisbruikers (road misusers or wrong road users) spent some time on Poles some time ago. There was one guy driving 140 on a busy 2-lane road and dangerously overtaking. When he was stopped by the police he couldn't understand why his licence was taken from him: "This is very normal in Poland, I do it all the time". Quite funny
About emigrating Poles: where a lot of Poles leave Poland to work abroad, doens't the Euro 2012 tournament preparations get behind because there are no workers anymore? I heard on the dutch news a week ago that Ukraine had great difficulties with getting ready on time.

Yeah, i heard the Poles are having a labourdeficit themselves, because half their workforce is in western Europe, and they have to hire Russians and Turkish workers.

You heard it right. In Poland there's barely any structural unemployment nowadays. Unemployment is mainly caused by reluctance to work and low mobility of the workforce. And because of this low mobility there are shortages of labour in some regions, while there's abundance in other ones.
And because of our generous welfare state, many people won't look for a job even if they're unemployed.
According to the estimates labour shortages only in constructing industry are as high as 200,000 workers
