IMHO it should go to Turkey. Why?

- all 2x3, 2x4 and 2x5 profile
- very cheap
- not congested
- spectacular views, especially Black Sea motorway
- very good quality, even on old sections
- great signage

Only think you can really dislike is rather low density of rest areas.

Is the Google maps correct on Turkish motorways? If so... well... there almost aren't any (for a country this size).

The best one? Lithuania of course! We Lithuanians have the best roads in Europe. Some of them are even paved.

Not true. The tolerance at 120km/h is around 127 or 128 (at 130 it is 139).

That's because Turks use a 2x2 motorway as if it is a 2x5 motorway.

Lol this is actually true . I remeber when I was in Istanbul about 3 years ago, people were driving in 3 lanes on 2x2 road.

I think we can all safely say that Montenegro and Moldova are the worst countries to drive on motorways because they have no motorways. :P

The best motorway i have driven on in Europe is:

1. Poland (I have only driven on A4 [Wroclaw - Krakow], A6 [Szczecin - German border] and S3 [Szczecin - Gorzow]. I dont really know if S3 is a motorway, due to the different name but when i drove on that road, it had the same shape as a motorway. No tolls, just only between Katowice and Krakow on the A4. Very nice view on A6. All of them are comfortable. Most modern motorways in Europe. I believe).

2. Germany (Driven on 19 [Rostock - Wittstock/Dosse], 24 [Wittstock/Dosse - Berlin], 11 [Panketal - Polish Border]. Very nice roads, no tolls at all and good quallity. Well what more can I say? Autobahn is one of the most well-known roads in the world).

3. Sweden (Driven on the E4 [Helsingborg - Stockholm], E6 [Malmö - Göteborg], E22 and E65. Good road, no toll at all, very nice view but the roads are a bit old and some point they are boring to drive on. Otherwise they are okey).


The worst motorway i have driven on in Europe is:

1. Montenegro (No motorway at all).

2. Serbia (Driven on E75 [Hungarian border - Belgrad]. Very bad quallity, bad shape and when I drove on that road, I was so afraid that my car would break down).

3. Cyprus (Driven on A3 [Larnaka - Protaras]. Well to be honest, Cyprus do have very good motorway, but the only problem is that it occur idiots on the road. They drive wreckless and stupid. Minumum speed-limit is 160 in their head! But the view of the road is beautiful, I love does flowers along the roadside).

Some tunnels could even have a 120 km/h speed limit if they have a continuous shoulder. The Czech Republic has the same issue by the way.
I know my answer is quite late but tunnel speed limit in Austria is 100 and not 80 km/h

I agree with you ! They're pleasant to drive even during heavy rain ! The only two reasons why they're not first in my classification are:
- speed limit (140 km/h), whereas in Germany there's no default speed limit.
- tolls (none in Germany, more & more of them in Poland)

SRB: why? Potholes ? Track formation ? Or what exactly ?
CY: Flowers ready for suicidal drivers ?

"Richtgeschwindigkeit" should be the default system in all EU motorways & expressways & lane indiscipline should be harshly fought! Down with radars on motorways!

Yea I agree with you, about the polish and german roads.

SRB: POTHOLES!!!!, so many of them. You won't believe it. If that road exist in Sweden, they would forbid driving on that road.
CY: Haha perhaps that. But the local said that the flowers are poisoned and keeps animals away from the motorway.

Really? C'mon, it's not that bad, especially the part between Belgrade and the Croatian border. It's worse between Belgrade and Nish, but still acceptable compared to the Bulgarian motorways. In that case, you should never ever drive on a Bulgarian motorway, except the newly-opened sections.

Sorry mate, can't judge Bulgarian motorway, because never been to Bulgaria. But I would really like to travel and visit Varna or Burgas.

Well, Serbian motorway isn't that bad, but they are definitely the worse I have ever seen and they do have a lot of potholes on them. It's good that they have motorways in Serbia, but they should renovate those damage motorways, for the people's sake and safety.

There is one on the A12 near Zirl where you're allowed 130.

I find even 100 km/h annoying. I drove last autumn on A2 between Villach and Graz and it was extremely annoying to go 130-100-130-100-130-100-...
