Many banks will convert foreign currencies at a lower rate than the market rate.

At the border, the sign with speed limits for different road categories told that the speed limit for motorways was 130 km/h. On the M1 though, all signs were for 120. So probably the general speed limit was raised to 130, and the old singns were not replaced yet

The new speed limit is just right after the border on the new section, then on the old one, as BND said, it is 120 and near the interchange with Skopje it is 100 due to bad conditionsof the surface.

Or maybe some sections are unsafe for 130kmh. We have similar situation here when our speed limit was raised to 140kmh.

So it's been 130 km/h for three or four years and we didn't know.
