No, the term freeway has nothing to do with tolls. It means a path free of at-grade intersections.

Croatian Highways

Please forgive the dirt and bugs all over the windshield in these pics... one guy from our forums took the pics. Croatia just finished its world-class highways, and boy are they pretty! These shots aren't from the cities, so the highways are only 2 lanes, instead of the usual 4 or 5.

Those Croatian Higways are indeed verry pretty. It looks very German.
