Very very short exit-ramp. You often see that on the BAB 4 in Thuringen and Sachsen, because it's very hilly over there.

^Some exit ramps are realy realy short in Germany yes. Very annoying, because you can drive about 130/150 and then you have to break as fast as you can!

To me it seems like an A4 problem. Poland also has those too short exit ramps at some spots on the Polish A4. The Dutch one doesn't have that though

I'm not sure where exactly, but there was a rest area with a very dangerous exit-ramp, followed by a sharp curve. I know for sure it was on the A4, and I guess somewhere near Legnica.

It's not because it's hilly and it's not because it's A4 - it is because the road is old!

All old 'Reichsautobahnen' had such short exit-ramps. And I think the part of the PL-A4 is also a old RAB.
After the modernisation and widening to 2x3 the (DE-)A4 has also normal exit-ramps - everywhere.

I see. I was particularly referring to the section around Eisenach, where the road is very narrow. Luckily they're building a small new stretch around Eisenach. Did they already finish that. And will that be 2×3?

When was the first traffic jam in the Netherlands?

Some say 29 may 1955, others say 9 august 1928 (Olympic Games).

Even the shoulders have different pavement, and the road is made of concrete. Radi will not like this

I don't know which road it is, but I saw a similar accident on the Dutch-Belgian border......with tomatoes
It's over ten years ago though.

The pumpkins looked somehow like the tomatoes, but I'm afraid I can't find any pics of that one as well, since it was over 10 years ago.
