Considering word order, German has quite some similarities with Dutch

Yes, I've got a driving licence, but I'm not taking pic when I'm driving, because I haven't got the driving experience for that.

But I can't get the driving experience, because I want to take pics...

Moscow. By the way, picasa pics cannot be hotlinked directly.

Looks like the trucker's strike we had a while ago.

Good pics. It doesn't look like our jams anyway. We only have 2×2 and 2×3 on the longer stretches, and only some very little 2×4 and 2×5

Netherlands, A20 near Moordrecht. I have taken this picture when an accident happened about more than 10 kilometres away (on the A12). I hate those traffic jams (like this one) when people get out of their cars. Mostly not a good sign

Those jams aren't very nice, no. When going to Munich in 2006 we stood 1,5 km away from an accident near Limburg a/d Lahn. We stood still for 3 hours and it was 35 degrees Celsius. Horrible. It took us 13 hours to get there.

Those situations happens quite often in the Netherlands due to the fact most motorways have 2x2 lanes at blackspots (=areas where accidents frequently occur). With more lanes, you can usually bypass the accident at one or two lanes, also causing huge queues, but you don't have to be stationary for hours sometimes.

This was on the A3, which is 2×3 there. The accident even happened on the other side of the road. But Germans tend to close the road in case of an accident, which is much easier to work for the ambulance, police and the fire fighters.

This accident was between Gouda and Reeuwijk, where the road has 3 or 4 lanes (depending on the exact location). Still the whole motorway needed to be closed.

Yeah, such large accidents happen too. But if a truck gets a breakdown, the right lane needs to be closed which effectively means the capacity is cut in half, while with 2x3 or 2x4 lanes there's more capacity left over.

I dont understand why do we want to reduce the traffic volume on the 2x2 southern M0 of Budapest (AADT: 90.000) by new expensive alternative route...

it is far-far-away from the 5+4+5+4 configuration...

btw: why is it assymetric?

why not 5+4+4+5 or 4+5+5+4?
