It is not so high speed - 200 km/h max
It is in croatian - maybe google can help you translate.
thx

200 kph is enough, and if im not mistaken, the alignment will eventually allow 250 kph

Great pics again, Palance! We don't have many photos from the Istrian Y, especially from the western part (B9).

^ That's some great speed limit. These signs look ancient, btw, when was this part of the Istrian Y built?

yeah, those signs are from 1981 when Y was opened (section from Lupoglav (tunnel Učka west) to Matulji (Rijeka))! they must be at high quality level, they haven't faded at all. but i think they are finally being removed (Althought it lasts really too long)

I would also say the entrance to this tunnel isn't up to safety standards. You shouldn't be able to hit the rock like that. Protective barriers are inadequate. He should have hit those and then hit the tunnel wall a few meters farther down the road, but at an angle which could at least have allowed survival.

Nothing will save you if you fell asleep and hit something with 200 km/h.

More pics + video there:

Some media are reporting that he probably felt asleep. Driver was Hungarian.

In my opinion there shouldn't be by no means a situtation where you can hit a wall head-on.

If the entrance to the tunnel was funnel-like, the consequences would be far less serious.


Like here: http://www.xs4all.nl/~egavic/ASN/HR/...es/S_1750.html Still too little for 200 km/h, but enough for less than that.

Than he would kill few more people.
I don´t think he fell a sleep, maybe he had an heart attack or something similar.

maybe he was just doing 200+ km/h there is no need for falling asleep, heart attacks or other stuff while you're doing that fast on public road.
few days ago i was driving quite powerfull car. it was early in the morning, motorway was almost empty so i did 220 on few moments just to feel it. but when i had to pass slower cars or pass through slight long curves, i was affraid to do more than 160 or 170.

200 km/h shouldn't be a problem in nice weather on a properly designed motorway.

There is a tunnel. And speed limit in front of tunnel 100km/h
So 200 km/h is problem.

I find this sentence funny because in Albanian "pijanec" means drunkard.
