"Nederland" should ask "*******" in Austria to become their sister-city

I think they consider this wide enough to do without a barrier. But I also think a barrier would be safer, or a ditch in the middle. There are very few motorways in the Netherlands that don't have a median barrier.

Dutch motorways remind me of US freeways.

He's probably referring tot the pictures of the A6. They also remind me a bit of a US rural freeway: wide median, 2×2, rural area.

Some pictures of this morning. Unfortunately it rained a bit and is was darker than I expected, so the pictures are not quite as sharp as they should be. But still they give an impression of the Dutch province of Zeeland (the southwesternmost part of the Netherlands).

Route 1: (Motorway)

Route 2: (no motorway)

Nice pictures, Palance. I experienced today's rain :P

It's weird that they put "TOL" next to Terneuzen. Well, it's not weird that they say that it's tolled, but the way they present it is weird. It's ugly IMO. It would be better to put a small icon or sth next to Terneuzen.

I agree, they should come with a sign like they have in Spain for the few toll roads we have:

We don't have those signs in the Netherlands, as far as I know (never seen it in Belgium as well)

If they did so, I would certainly mistaken it for the border customs Plus, this circle would not look good on distance signs. I would also prefer a small icon with blue background and white foreground depicting a sign of money or something like that.
