Do you have some non-motorway videos? I would gladly take a ride through Zwolle

You'd go bankrupt trying that in The Netherlands with these insane gas prices. But then again it wouldn't matter, you'd be crossing the border in less than half that distance from any starting point in the country anyway, so you could just get cheaper gass there

I made a video of the ringroad of Zwolle this afternoon.

It was very quiet on the road, so the total 16km doesn't last longer than 20 minuten on the video. Normally during rushhours, completing the ringroad would take over an hour.
Zwolle is a city of 115.000 and the capital of the Overijssel province. Because of the lack of a real ringroad or a motorway bypass. All traffic to and from northeastern Netherlands has to cross through Zwolle, making it the second busiest city outside the Randstad metropolis.
The current ringroad or beltway consist out of 4 major arterials; IJsselallee, Zwartewaterallee, Oldeneelallee and Ceintuurbaan.
The asphalt is detoriating quickly, since the municipal government likes to spend the road budget otherwise.

I don't think many people are going to bother watching a 20 minute video of low quality. Make them shorter and of higher quality to compensate

Dude have you any idea how big it would be? Like 500MB, can't do that

Oh yeah the camera is zoomed 4 times, so when it looks like i'm parking my car in the trunk of the next car, that is just optical illusion

Another video, of the A28 starting just south of Zwolle leading to just north of Zwolle. It was very quiet on the motorway, but it was saturdayevening
Inside the city, the most left lane is a real lane! But it is so tiny.

Chris, the first video was pretty cool, but why do you need to zoom your camera 4 times? Wider angle would provide a better picture of what was going on around you. And the camera was turned to the left for some reason.

And still, it would be nice to see the zentrum, not outskirts of Zwolle

Well, it has to be zoomed, since my wipers are positioned quite high. So i made the video with the ringroad of Zwolle on the left side of my car and zoomed.

The second video of the A28 motorway is not zoomed, and the camera is positioned in the center of the car, but you can see the wiper blades a little.

I prefer the older one.

Highway font (the original) is clearer than the new.

I prefer the old one too. I have no idea why they are changing it at all, but the new ones are harder to read while driving 80 or 100km/h. And the arrows really looks like shit. Nice on paper documents or something, but not on the signs!

Yeah, the offlane is 1600m long or so. But the offlanes between exit Zwolle-Zuid and Jct Hattemerbroek are even longer, like 3500m.

Yeah, there are over 120.000 vehicles every day on that bridge. It is jammed often. It is the second busiest road outside the Randstad region.

Another video. This time of the N50 between Kampen and Zwolle, 2 major cities in the province of Overijssel.

The N50 is a reconstructed road, and is the first road in the Netherlands to have a 2+1 configuration. You see this in Germany often, but this is the first here.

The maximum speed is 100km/h, but most traffic is doing 120km/h.
