It means "to ****" in some other Slavic languages.

Yes, man, you know it best.

Seeing all the pictures up to now, Struma is worse than this A6.

Let's leave radi in his fairy tale; I remember how modern I felt my country was becoming after it finally started to get a decent motorway network in the previous decade (we got our first motorway in 1972, btw). I can't tell you how backwards it felt without a single kilometer of motorway from Ljubljana in direction Maribor only 6 years ago. But now, the whole distance is covered by motorway, and I have motorway anywhere I go (especially being from Ljubljana), so driving on motorway has become nothing special.

Keber why did you hijack the ausrian thread with Struma motorway? I can accept you don´t find it the best motorway but you simply can´t say it´s a bad motorway.

Actually, could you explain, how you think, that new A6 iz bumpy, if you didn't see one picture of it, yet drove over it.

Hmmm i have bad experiences making roadpics during this time of the year. They all get blurred, because of the lack of light.

the season shouldn´t be the problem at the moment.

Signs powered by electricity are so 1970's. Nowadays, there is a much better alternative; retroreflective ones, especially diamond grade signs. You don't have the costs of maintenance, power, and it saves you a lot of inconvenience when they are broken.

Those are VMS signs. (Variable Message Signs). I thought he meant signs which are lit from the inside. You see those a lot in Belgium, but hell they are 20 years behind the rest of Europe

(just kidding, no offense to my Belgium neighbors!)

Thank you davidkunz/VIE, nice photos. I wonder what is this structure supposed to be? I guess it has something with close airport, but I don't know exactly what.
