Those are not avenues, they're more similar to freeways/highways.

Yes, this thread was about at-grade avenues. Like the Champs Elysees, Broadway or Wilshire Boulevard.

I've been on the Avenida (or Avinguda?) Diagonal, but it wasn't such a mess then, pretty much freeflowing.

We don't have those wide avenues in NL. The only, relatively wide, one i can think of is the Maliebaan in Utrecht, http://maps.google.nl/?ie=UTF8&ll=52...04828&t=h&z=18
