I think it's better to stay in the car in the situation like this.

Omg. What a disaster. Look what do you actually do here? I would be thinking to grab a car and turning the High beams against incoming traffic. Or maybe walk on the emergency lane 100 meters away and warn people. I dont know, maybe its also about morality. Would you try to do something in those 10-15 min until police arrives or ?

I always had the impression that people drive much too fast on this part of the A1 motorway. Especially this section Ljubljana-Koper is always a little bit uncomfortable to drive, quite often drivers (especially with Koper plates) try to push through with 180 km/h or faster. I've seen many scary situations in this section and to be honest, don't get me wrong, I'm not surprised that something like this happened... :-(

This part is one of the most dangerous sections of Slovenian motorways in terms of design (very steep ascent, highest point of motorway network, quite curvy motorway and very unpredictable weather because of peculiar orography of that small area). Tunnel under the hill was also predicted before actual construction (in 70ies and 80ies, but it was considered too costly then).

Not sure about that. There was a death casualty in a similar accident at Višnja Gora or Postojna. One person got out of the car and got killed by a flying debris.

We call this maladjusted velocity (the official term in police reports) and thats what it is.

Toll station take farewell, bids for e-tolling

Ljubljana, 12.17.2015

DARS has opened four bids received in response to the call for the implementation of an electronic toll system. It is advantageous bid consortium Telekom Slovenia and the company Q-Free in Norway in the amount of 99.99 million euros.

Iskratel Consortium and the Slovak Skytolla offered 110.11 million, Cetis 114.6 million, Kapsch TrafficCom 114.96 million.

Motorway Company of the Republic of Slovenia (DARS) would otherwise have to offer open immediately after the expiry of the tender in mid-October, but the offer because Kapsch audit request remained sealed. Dars the green light for the opening of the bids received in recent days, when the National Review Commission rejected the request for revision of the public procurement procedure.

The project must be from the signing of contracts completed within a year, after the introduction of electronic toll collection should Dars tipped the toll station.

Tender documents for electronic toll collection is in the technologically open. The decision on the selection of technologies toll is left entirely to the provider, but in the context that in this respect puts the European Directive on interoperability of toll systems. In Kapschu are otherwise sure to call favors the satellite toll system.

Tolling scheme will cover all vehicles weighing more than 3.5 tons, including buses, taking out some exceptions. For all other vehicles weigh less than 3.5 tonnes, it will still be subject to the current system of vignettes.

Nothing has been decided yet, Q-Free offered the lowest price but the bids are still being evaluated.

Surely if Slovenia also goes to electronic tolling, the EU has to finally wake up and demand a unified system for the EU? It's such nonsense that a truck driver going from Lithuania to Croatia would have to obtain boxes for Poland, the Czech Republic, Austria and Slovenia.

It really should just be a single box with the charge capped at 30 Euro and with the capability of taking tolls from the box in the currency of the box owner.

Funny, how EU regulations are likewise blamed or welcomed. One box would be nice, yes. A cap would encourage transporting far instead of producing more local. Thats shit.
