And holding this collection up to date.

And I'm only taking videos of roads, which I've got already on photos.
There's already an initiative from the Dutch wegenforum, which is called www.roadpics.net to cover all motorways in the Netherlands in pictures. I think we already achieved that goal, and Belgium and Luxemburg isn't far away too, as well as Nordrhein-Westfalen.

So, given the fact every motorway has been pictured by Frits and others, I record videos of the motorways

I'm not sure what you meant with that last sentence, but the widest motorway is as follows:

1) total amount of lanes: A16 Ridderkerk-Noord - Ridderkerk-Zuid 16 lanes
2) total amount of through lanes: A12 De Meern - Oudenrijn 5+6 lanes (very short)
3) total amount of through lanes longer distance: A4 IC Burgerveen - Schiphol 2x5 lanes.

I remembered this:

[img]http://i6.************/4i6ow7t.png[/img]

They expected massive traffic jams because of snowfall, and they had issued a traffic warning. Result: everybody left early or stayed at home. The expected 500 kilometer traffic jam was only 13 kilometers long

Sometimes it's the other way around 7/5/07

A Dutch radio station held a contest and the winner would win a helicopter ride to his work and back home. It would be fun for the winner to see all other people in the jams, but there was only 13 km

I know this site.

But only one 1 pic for each exit - that's too little for me, I would prefer to have at least a pic of every sign, like on http://rippachtal.de

Haven't you got the goal to have pics of all motorways in your country - made by yourself?
I have - but I give me some dacades time for that.

To cover Germany is probably a little more work than to cover the Netherlands

A37 Hoogeveen - Meppen

A drive on the eastbound A37 motorway, a newer and very quiet motorway in northeastern Netherlands. It runs from interchange Hoogeveen to the interchange with the German A31 near Meppen, 50 kilometers are in between. You can see that in 6 minutes.

It's that new motorway, right? Very quiet indeed, even for our standards. The border crossing reminds me very much of you-know-which-one.

What camera and setup are you using for these vids? Always wanted to make something like that myself.

I'm using a simple digital compact camera: Canon Powershot A530. I have attached it with velcro on my dashboard and tape the road for long distances and then edit it 4 times fastforward.

50 kms in 6 minutes is 500 km/h, and speeded with a factor 4 makes 125 km/h. So Chris was speeding

Let me guess..... Would it probably the one that just opened between Slovenia and Hungary?

Bingo. There are also motorway on one side and expressway on the other in both cases, just a little better.

Nice video again; the car in the 19th second overtakes you amazingly fast.

Nice video Chris. It's funny to see that the border station is still there.

^ Where do you see a border station? I hardly even noticed the sign for the Netherlands.
