Bistra is very well known. There is a technical museum in Bistra with a large collection of cars, used by Josip Broz Tito.

Taken with iPhone 3G.

Does someone remember the old great white interchange tables made of fiber, inscribed with elegant black font in capitals? I think those plates were put at the end of sixties or beginning of seventies, and took away at the end of eighties.

I remember. You could really see the fibers from the bask side. A few (smaller) examples could still be found in some remote villages (and in Maribor ), but probably really only a few.

There are no speed cameras inside Slovenian tunnels. There is a fixed speed camera before you enter 2nd tunnel in a 130 km/h zone.

pijanec, does it exist the tolerance of 10% speeding on Slovenian motorways?

No. We have absolute values.

5 km/h for speed up to 100 km/h
7 km/h for speed from 100 km/h to inclusive 200 km/h
11 km/h over the speed of 200 km/h.

If they are measuring you on a curve tolerance is 11%.

these are low tolerances because speedometer lies more than this

Yeah

160 km/h on your speedometer is like 151 - 152 in real kms. And they subtract the correction from that, so you'll get a fine for 145 km/h too fast.

This doesn't depend on speedometer but on measuring devices. And we all know that measuring devices have lesser error than those limits in law.

If your speedometer is showing 160 and measuring devices put out a speed of 150, then 150 is your right speed. Deflection of speedometers have zero influence on anything regading laws.

you know that i'm telling you that if limit is 100 that you can drive some 105-110 according to your speedometer and with added some tollerance for measuring devices. i don't know why wouldn't we consider about speedometer deflection, too

Speedometer in my car is correct to about 1 km/h. Confirmed with GPS device, time measurement with km sings and at the end with the police radar (and a 50€ fine because I thought, that speedometer lies as it did on my previous car).
