Police conducting speed checks: 16 kilometer traffic jam. The police conducted a license plate check on the westbound A12, which resulted in a 16 km backup. The backup lasted well after 7 pm, there was still a 7km backup at 19.20 hours. This has happened several times in the past couple of weeks. -1 for the Dutch police.

A melted sign (a year ago, a bus has been on fire on this very spot. Which was not good for the signage)

A dirty windshield is always a problem during this time of the year.

Well, it depends where you drive. The Netherlands is flat with lots of lakes, and wet grounds. Ideal for insects and flies. I had less trouble with it in Germany, could drive 350 kilometers before I had to clean the windshield, while you have to do it after 50 km in NL. It wasn't a problem in Switzerland at all.

Of course, but I live in the Netherlands, so that's the problem

By the way, I spotted some new signage on the A10 east today

The map speaks for itself. You need some time to look at it, because it's a lot of information in the Randstad of few space.

30,000 around Rotterdam looks pretty massive. Also A67 carries surprisingly huge traffic. Guess it's all the transit between France and Germany though.

Why are some motorway stretches marked in red and some in green?

E-roads and non E-roads

Anything above 15.000 trucks per day can be considered huge, I think.

The A67 is a motorway between the Ruhrgebiet and the port of Antwerp.
