The amount of traffic is completely beyond control. Our Chris likes to go driving just for the sake of it. Then complains about the roads being congested

This is the on-line mapfinder www.routenet.nl - just check the ridiculous amount of motorways.

new signalization in the Netherlands.

Since a few years, signage is not only done by the ANWB, but can be done on provincial roads by other organisations. This new stuff is called "redesign", and differs from the original Interstate highway series font, and new arrows, pictograms etc.

Motorways and other state roads remain (thank god) with the interstate signs.

Here's a comparisation, which do you like more?

Left: Original Interstate series, right: New redesign series.


The A366 is a fictional roadnumber. the N366 does exist there (near Stadskanaal in the Groningen province).

Ehm, the change is really small, but the old seems better, the new arrows are ugly, the numbers seems to be better though, more clear, and the highway sign without the arrow is bad as well.

^ I don't like the latter thing either. Otherwise, hmm, wow, unique! The previous arrows bore me to death (similar to the old Slovenian arrows), the new ones... wow, these are REALLY unique! I actually like them!

I made a nice Video of the A28 motorway from Nieuwleusen to Zwolle. It's about 18MB large

Notice the bad road surface however this is only like 15 years old. The German A30 has an even worse roadsurface.

VIDEO 61MB, Rapidshare

oh yeah, the video includes some nice music, so the video is not boring to watch
germany has many motorways in bad condition, pretty bad are A8 and A81 of those i travelled on but besides new ones Geran mtoroways are not in a very good condition, i don´t know why.

Chris, do you have some videos where you drive on city streets? Driving on motorway is pretty much the same around the world, but city or suburb driving is very different in terms of traffic signs, road marking, driving behaviour, etc.

Yeah, I like German arrows too The only thing I don't like about the new design is that motorway 'exit' sign lost its arrow.

Hmm, it's pretty much the same everywhere; we don't have signs telling young Chris to get on his bike.

He should. He's only in his twenties, still lives with mum and dad, and cycling to work only takes a few minutes. Chris is such a lazy ass! He lives in the small town of Zwolle and can't even cross like a 20 kilometres distance. Poor Chris. There's many like him though.

Really sad world, isn't it?

Four years ago I was pretty much like him - in my early twenties, living with parents and driving for NO reason for hundreds of kilometres One day I drove for almost 1000 km just to see the Oregon - Nevada border And then.... I met a girl!

I have posted this link a while ago (in this thread):
http://www.youtube.com/profile_video...SDV&p=r&page=1

It has some pretty nice driving videos from the Netherlands (and some from Belgium), including pretty interesting city/town driving scenes. Most videos also have fun music in them.

@Chris1491: Why don't you post your videos on Youtube like that dude in the link? It will be easier to watch

I think those fileshare sites that you are using are perfectly fine, and they save quality.

Whoa amazing sight. What's that lone truck doing in photo #11, isn't he supposed to be waiting in line like the rest of them?

Some trucks are allowed to pass through Germany, like flowers, fresh food etc.
