Very nice, modern highway system. Why is there virtually no traffic on some of the highways?

Those do look pretty cool. I like how they use frontage roads (side roads) on their freeway system.

The pictures of the landscape are virtually indistinguishable from the cityscapes of North America (whether that is good or bad depends on your perspective).

I am a little surprised by the smoggy shots of Santiago -- I have never been there and I am aware that the smog problem in Santiago is up there with the best of them -- LA, Tehran... -- perhaps I'm spoiled by the picture perfect shots of downtown Santiago with the beautiful mountains in the background elsewhere.

not precisely, it has an automatic pay system, with sensors, the cars pass through some portals an it checks the car ID's with a infrared device called Televia or TAG

Portals like this one:



and the TAG device.

I'm impressed by the quality of highways in Chile. I think they look more like the motorways in Spain than the highways in California.

Sorry, I didn't make it clear enough. The landscape looks like California, not the highways, just to clarify.

I know! Israel and Australia are the other two contries that has this system.
Chile is the 3th. but there's a difference, all the chilean urban highways are interconnected with the same system. example: if go with my car on one of that, and the next day another, I have to pay in the same count. besides, all of they are different companies.

that's rather cool, but still, paid highways are not cool.

Btw, Toronto, Canada, also has the same system on it's 407 (?) freeway.
