No wonder, we had rain tonight and later on temperatures dropped below zero. I leave for school within an hour, and I guess I can skate over the roads, instead of bike

The longest one according to the ANWB is on the A58, and is 45 km long

Chris, do you go to work by bike since you moved to your new apartment?

I will wait a while before I will leave to the office . The ANWB reports 651 km on the highways. That means that with connecting roads and provincial roads the 1,200 km traffic jam mark could very well be true.

The news on the radio just reported that there aren't any traffic jams.
But it's very icy, so you couldn't go any faster than 40km/h on some highways this morning.

Yeah, I almost fell of my bike a few times this morning. Tomorrow is going to be hell, it's going to get quite cold (up to -10) and I will definately freeze on my way to school. When it stays to be dry like this, the roads won't be very slippery anymore, which is a good thing

It took people 4 hours to cover just 80 km / 50 miles from Kerkrade to Eindhoven this morning.

In the East and the South of NL it's going to be -14 this evening.
At least they say it's going to.

Two lanes are closed on the A6 between Almere and Muiden, because of cracks in the asphalt. This happened because of the heavy frost, and they cannot repair it until it stops freezing, but that will only be in three or four days. Meanwhile, Almere-Muiden is only one lane for a big part, which creates a huge bottleneck.

Does anyone know when they start building the new bridge on the A1 near Muiden?

Does the green paint between the center lines have any specific meaning? I've seen something similar (red, I think) in pictures of French roads.

It means 100 km/h is allowed. The Dutch government tries to make a uniform road layout for every speed limit. It doesn't work out too well so far...

Yes, I do. However, I think that H123Laci means the unmotorised one, since my bike is also unmotorised. Therefore, I don't think that a trike is faster then a bike, and if it is, I still won't buy one, because the people at school will laugh at me
