No Chriszwolle, the road is not average, I bet that roadmarkings of your roads donīt look like this after time has pased, they would have faded out already. Just because the asphalt isnīt very dark doesnīt mean it isnīt good, it feels better than any dark asphalt on any country I have been now, hard, thick, smooth, even!

Wow, radi is progressing. A new therapy?! Maybe in the next 10 years, when he grows some useful parts of his head and have driven by himself around Europe, we'll finally have some peace.

"Dark ashpalt", "smooth asphalt", "very thick markings", "shiny crashbarriers", "white concrete", "balcony ralings" .... Some body please give me a gun and a chance to shoot Radi! When and how are we going to get rid of this insane clown

Radi, it's very common to have this "thick road marking" in the Netherlands. I just drove about 80km for my work in my region, and I saw a lot of roads with these thick markings which gets you all worked up

Chriszwolle, I predict it will take radi at least 2 years with constant repeating to understand that what he calls "thick" markings is quasi the norm in richer countries. Good luck

I believe that Holland was one of the first countries to widely employ plastic and epoxy markings. I have lived here for 16 years and theyve always been used. Painted markings are extremely rare in The Netherlands.
Must be the new rage in Bulgaria from the looks.

Even the small bike path along the Amsterdam-Rhine canal near Loenen has these "thick markings"

These "thick markings" are very common especially in Sofia where this year they finally did some repainting on the main arteries But I bet they won't be very thick after 2-3 months due to the traffic in Bulgaria

In Norway aswell. AFAIK thermoplastic is the only road marking material beeing used here for the last 10 to 15 years.

Do Bulgarians like driving over ''very thick'' markings making them into not so very thick markings Radi?

No, they are not, usually they add very thin layers at least in the towns, in Bulgaria Iīve only seen the very thick markings on the Struma motorway and E-79 nationalroad to Dupnica, the nationalroads have very good markings usually but they are not thick, but are still good, the thick markings will hold as long as the road itself maybe. The thick markings donīt fade out, they usually get cracks if they are very old.

Why I couldn't have expected anything else from you But I'll tell you that those "thock markings" are very common in our country and I've seen them many times even before the Struma motorray was built

Maybe Radi has grown up in a cave, where they only had small rock paths without any markings
It would explain a lot though, why would he otherwise consider the s**ma highway as a great road?
