The A15 provides a bypass and southern entrance to Arnhem. Since real estate prices in Arnhem are going higher and higher, many people moved to places like Zevenaar, Didam or Doetinchem. A12 is overloaded, as are A50 and N325.

By the way, I don't think this area is more beautiful than the 80 km of the exact same area to the west of it... And it's also not considered beautiful enough by the cities of Nijmegen, Huissen and Arnhem, since they are developing new housing projects north and south of this A15 (around N325).

Video: A15 Rotterdam

A video of the A15 westbound, 50 kilometers of industrial wasteland... This motorway features one of the finest stacks in the Netherlands, and also some kick-ass wide motorways (up to 16 lanes).

Yeah, there are plans to widen IC Benelux - IC Vaanplein from 6 to 10 lanes. Estimated truck volumes for 2020 are around 50,000! I don't think the world has seen anything like that yet.

Yeah, especially the south side of Rotterdam. The wide A15/A16 are really a contrast to the narrow A13 and A20.

Another thing of madness in the Netherlands;

A58 Tilburg, sunday morning, 6 lanes and nearly no traffic. "Smog" + Vmax=80 km/h.

The smokeys were taking pictures, Traffic Information Center reported nearly all motorists who drove here were fined for speeding.

The same thing is going to happen on the A2 Amsterdam-Utrecht when the 2Χ5 is finished. No one is going to drive 100 km/h on a quiet sunday morning.

Video A4-A13-A20 Rotterdam - The Hague

Another video from the Rotterdam area. It's quite amazing to drive there, from an Overijssel point of view, I don't get west of Utrecht much. A map is displayed in the first seconds of the video.

Watching it in HQ size is much better though

Interesting video, although you could make such a video with normal speed and a bit less text, I think. I see that you don't have any music in your videos any more because of copyright. Why don't you at least record the real sounds? You probably listen to some music in your car? I like such 'real' vids.

I like to mute my video's because of two reasons:
- copyright
- avoid discussions about my music choice (does everybody like Rammstein & the Prodigy? )

The problem is the original footage was over 24 minutes long. If you speed that up, the sound becomes very distorted. Copyright issues were another problem.

Something weird has happened on southbound A27 between Utrecht and Breda, two cars smashed into a gas station, at least one person was killed, and several injured.

It's quite a mess around Amsterdam now. There is some mud in the Coentunnel (A10), so in both directions one lane is closed. Furthermore, an accident happened near Abcoude so traffic is jammed all the way from Oudenrijn to Abcoude on the A2 (well, what's new? )

The Coen Tunnel is leaking... it has been leaky for years, but now mud came out too, which makes this already narrow tunnel slippery. The Coen Tunnel is vital in that area, as a result, the A9 has been jammed for 20 kilometers, and the other side of the A10 also 20 kilometers. The inbound A8-A7 was also jammed for 20 kilometers, and the inbound A2 was also jammed for 20 kilometers, because of an accident near ABC-town.
