We have those in Italy too, mostly on local roads with 50km/h limits... once I managed to activate one while riding a bicycle... it read "15 km/h"

When I was walking on the pavement in Schladming in Austria, it showed me 8 km/h. I went back and started running, but it ignored me then.

If there's a lot of traffic, I never know which speed is mine. I have a feeling that your speed is measured way before the sign. For example, I know I'm driving 80 km/h, but it says 100 km/h, because there's a car coming from 200 m behind me.

France has that too, at least by my experience.
There are quite some radar detectors on our motorways like above on the picture, maybe this year we'll get section based radars.

Here in the USA (especially Florida) we have these speed reminder radar devices like the one on the entrance to a motorway tunnel in Slovenia as mentioned earlier in a picture that Verso quoted. For example, when you exit Interstate 275 onto westbound Roosevelt Blvd. (FL 686, Exit 30) in St. Petersburg, FL first there is a speed limit 45 mph sign then a speed reminder device which tells motorists how fast they are going for the ramp.

Tutor? i am very sory about you

i think that on SLO motorways interceptors can do their job quite well, just as in HR because it is not too congested (as in Italy for instance).
the only problem in HR are the fines; they are too low. they are mostly catching those driving 200 or more, and the fines of 700€ are funny to them.

Why? What I've seen in Italy it does very good job for equalising speeds, which makes less traffic jams and easier driving with cruise control.

Also you never know, what your country can do (buy/install) for your roads.

Does someone know something about that:
"Načrt trase za odsek tretje razvojne osi odprt za javno razpravo" (in Slovenian, from Delo's today internet page).
Is it possible that Slovenia will build a motorway (or an expressway) from Novo Mesto to the border with Croatia, close to the interchange Bosiljevo-2, and connect the Adriatic-Ionian motorway with Tauernautobahn?

Tauernautobahn. Yes, it will connect the A-I motorway with the X. Corridor, so you won't have to go all the way to Zagreb.

actually connection to A-I motorway from Tauernautobahn, so for tourists below stutgart, belgium & co., should be karavanke tunnel - ljubljana - divaca - rijeka - zuta lokva. but neither slovenian or croatian side of this connection is finished. bosiljevo is situated really more for pyrhn autobahn.

I wrote at the Delo website that the expressway (2+2) will end somewhere near Črnomelj. From there to Bosiljevo-2 is not so much, but it will depend on the political agreement between Slovenia and Croatia.
And for the Tauernautobahn tourists, the connection Villach-Jesenice-Ljubljana-Novo Mesto-Črnomelj-Bosiljevo-Žuta Lokva-Split-Dubrovnik is much shorter than Villach-Ljubljana-Divača-Rupa-Rijeka-Senj-Žuta Lokva-Split-Dubrovnik.

I think that those planned expressway/motorway won't be connected to Bosiljevo-2 junction, but to Bosiljevo-1 exit, because on Bosiljevo-2 there are 2 motorway directions (towards Split and Rijeka) and no other are planned there.

So there could be some improvement into a expressway standard of that road (called "obilaznica" on google maps) which is going from Bosiljevo-1 to your road 218 towards Črnomelj

That's correct, darko06.

For now there are two sections under proposal for national spatial plan (for map see second page of those PDFs). Both proposals are now open for public debate. When accepted, construction can begin in about one year, depending of money available.

http://www.mop.gov.si/fileadmin/mop....enj_gradec.pdf

Probably first section to be built is Novo mesto bypass (first link).

I think a new north-south corridor is necessary in southern Slovenia.

Right now, the fastest route from Ljubljana via to Split is via Zagreb. A new north-south route from Slovenian A2 to Croatian A1 near Bosiljevo would cut this distance by 80 kilometers.

Another option is if Slovenia build a motorway from A1 near Postojna to the Croatian border and if the Croatians build a link from Rijeka to Brinje. This would cut the distance by some 65 kilometers compared to the route via Zagreb.
