A2 LED lighting

New LED lights on A2. This looks like the Breukelen exit.

A27 Merwede Bridge update

They took the information for international drivers to the next level.

These VMSs are placed at the A16 Hazeldonk border crossing.

Here's another one at De Lutte. Apparently they are signed in 12 different languages. I've never seen something like that before...

I hope this is just overkill instead of some corruption involving the company that rents the VMS panels.

Just out of curiosity, may I see the Italian one?

Also, I learn now that extra urban speed limit is 80.

I wonder why they just say lorries on the English language one. I thought it's all heavy vehicles that are banned from the bridge. ?

Edit: I had not noticed the Spanish one is already posted. Weird to see that (and that many languages) in the Netherlands

Signs near the bridge indicate it's closed for buses as well. They said they can't install a '3.5 t' sign because it cannot be enforced without some kind of portable weigh station.

Only a very small share of traffic is over 3.5 tons, but not a truck or bus. And most of those will only be slightly over 3.5 tons, so it's not considered a problem.

The usage of the word 'lorry' is interesting. It's correct British English, but it appears to me that most Europeans who do not have British English as a native language use the word 'truck'. Just look around on these forums, the word 'lorry' (or HGV if you will) is hardly used outside of a UK context.

Presumably they got a Brit to write it?

Which is odd, as Dutch people have excellent English

Marechausse is quite an odd word, looks ancient. They should have used Royal Marshall Service, don't they?

The general population in the Netherlands is more geared towards American English due to the amount of TV programming from U.S. shows and online content. But academia and government far more often use British English, due to the proximity and close ties to the United Kingdom. It's not uncommon to see people use a mix of both (such as the 'World Trade Centre' or 'Pearl Harbour').

At one of my workplaces, they often use American vocabulary, but British orthography.

No, tuned cars (no matter what brand) like to catch on fire (I've read it had to do with brake-problems, probably cause the chassis is so low it's probably heating things up too much). VW-group vehicles just like to spew out more shit than they're allowed to

Was this car "tuned up"?

I'd never do that to a car I owned. I just don't see the point. To each its own though, good luck to people who want to spend € 40 000 and then wreck a carefully designed products with sub-optimal tire sizes/bands, strengthened suspension, tweaked shock absorbers and the like.

At least "rolling coal" is not a thing in Netherlands (and probably illegal, for good reason)

Just look at the thumbnail, it's modified more than Marijke Helwegen's face.
