I kid you not!

I should have been ore respectful, yes. But I canīt understand how Croatians diss Slovenias roads and vigniette system, altough Croatia has the most expensive vigniettes in whole europe, thatīs incredible.

Excuses about these projects being non-priorities are for kids.

Slovenes don’t build these motorways – not just this one, their snail brigades haven’t completed Ljubljana to Zagreb yet – just because they want to block Croatian access to European motorway network, as simple as that.

Why is it like that - blackmailing re sea border dispute or something, I really wouldn’t know.

Our current relations are at historical low indeed but such methods are nonetheless disappointing.

I usually obey the speed limits, especially when abroad (and especially in Slovenia), and I can guarantee you that. Why don't you finally admit that the road is crap (compared to what it should be) and that you're not building the motorway because of political reasons...
I agree here. We have these kind of roads in some Canadian villages. The ones that do allow speed limits of 80-90km/h, those roads have much smoother asfalt. I would be afraid to do over 70, just from looking at the particular road.

Radi, there are no vignettes in Croatia. And you paid 15, not 20 €.

They charged you more, because they had to clean the crash barriers first.

I believe these additional 5 € was so called Goa Trance Package.

What many dont know is that one can have a custom made DJ program while driving through Croatia. It costs money.

I didn't have a slightest clue vignettes were introduced in Croatia yet. Just out of curiosity, are you a prophet by any chance?

p.s. it is Croats and Slovenes, not Croatians and Slovenians.

Err, 'Slovene' means the same as 'Slovenian', while 'Croatians' are citizens of Croatia, and 'Croats' is ethnicity, so he said nothing wrong. After all, why would Croats from America care about this road, when they don't even need it?

Have you even driven the road? Except for a few spots, you can do 120 km/h as far as pavement is concerned.

I don't know why there's so much criticizing in this thread (and only in this thread), even though we have one of the densest motorway networks in Europe. The funniest are Bosnians, who hardly have any motorway at all; so when will you build me a motorway to Sarajevo, so I can finally visit it normally?
