Well I must admit that at 5mp it is way better than my first digital camera...

Go with the tide, Chris, surrender yourself to the Finns...


My provider gives phones for free if you buy a midrange flat rate...

A brand new Autostrada connecting major cities point to point. I'd be thrilled to learn more about the technical spec.

Then why it is planned enlargement of A4 between Brescia and Bergamo if they build parallel motorway? Doesn't look very economic enterprise.

Actually Brebemi is in 'project financing', so Autostrade spa (which 'owns' that stretch of A4) is not directely involved
Anyway the volume of traffic on A4 is at a so high level than an 'alternative' run wasn't enough
Anyway on that stretch of A4 new Pedemontana (running North Milan) will be more effective than Brebemi for the fluidification of traffic

I was already wandering about Milano - Bergamo, if this one was to be built so soon. Actually I'm surprised this motorway is getting built in these times.

So BreBeMi is kind of extending the ss 11 to motorway standard?

Is there any internet site regarding accidents on Italian motorways? I saw an accident around Caserta on A1 autostrada on 10th July and wondering, what happened because of strange circumstances (one covered lying body on pavement and no damaged vehicles anywhere around)

Be serious.

I think I found it:
http://www.caiazzorinasce.info/2009/...i-e-viene.html
Someone apparently walked on motorway and got hit by a car.

(I've taken a video, but probably it will stay on my harddisk, not many people like to see lying bodies)

I am serious. This will happen sometime. More people are assassinated in Amsterdam every year, than cyclists are killed in traffic. And it often happens on the streets.

Uhm, this mad man (maybe drunk) crossed the motorway () then a car hit him and probably it escaped without rescuing the injured (if they catch the driver goes to prison).

What's weird is they know it was an alone-driver, so they know who was.

What's the video are you talking about?
