That is true. For example, I personally think that Croatian highways are among the best in Europe. Why? Because they are in my country, they are relatively new (modern signalisation etc.), old ones are well maintained, etc.
And the sight is really great. You can drive for hours and not get bored.

Brasil has 10.000 km + 1.000 km in construction of 4/6-lane highways.

Source: DNIT-GOV-BR

I think Chile, Mexico, Argentina, Venezuela and Brasil have the best highways in LA.

In my opinion, the best highways in Brasil are:

01 - Imigrantes Highway


02 - Bandeirantes Highway

Do you realise that Amsterdam isn't a German city?

I see a lot of votes going to the German Highway system. Though it's a very good system the maintainance of the roads isn't of a very good quality.

no you dont understand, I meant the country with the best highways OVERALL on each continent, then the city with the best highways on the continent (which is not necessarily in the country i specified)

for example, I mean in Europe, Germany has the best highways overall as a country, while Amsterdam has the best metropolitan highway network.

i hope that clears it up.

Are you kidding?

The beltway is extremely congested, and so are the motorways around the city.

And there are almost no large arterials, all traffic has to push through congested narrow citystreets, which aren't build for the traffic of today.

The best highways in/near a city, i would say, it's Madrid. Also congested, but way better build.

I definatley would not say Australia. Although there have been some improvments, most of the highways are single lane dangerous roads. New Zealand has some pretty hair raising roads as well. I would say having lived in the UK that they have their shair of good motorways, but then there also those very narrow roads that are choked with weekend and holiday traffic. The ones that have the old stone walls, you can't drive for more than 30 minutes in some parts of the UK with out having to change to another road when driving long distance. A number of western European countries have pretty good roads. Germany also pops into my mind first when I think of good roads. I understand that the former east part may have not caught up with the former west. But Germany's autobahns have good straight stretches of motorway, they are well signed and the lanes seem to be have good width. While the Europeans have used tunnels to go through hills and mountains, bridge technology to build roads around hills, Australia is really only starting to pick up on this.
