Now I am curious. What exactly defines a "hessian way of signage"?

Quote:

On that part of the A8 the emergency lane can temporarily get opened for traffic as a 4th lane in case of heavy traffic. In that case a 4th upward arrow will appear for that lane on the sign.

In this case: only short arrows used, extra board for the exit without arrows but only the distance (500m). Anywhere else in Germany it would look completely different, except for Hesse.
The hessian rules can be found in 2 pdf-documents here: HSVV, the topic "Leitfaden zur wegweisenden Beschilderung" at the bottom.

A99 + A92 München-West - Neufahrn

This route follows A99 and A92 along the west and northern side of München. It was my first time in this area, and I was there during rushhour, but no traffic jams, I only heard of one single traffic jam on the inner ring. Way to go München!

For a moment I thought the airport was named after Franz Josef, the Austrian emperor. Nice pics; I've heard there can be many traffic jams around Munich.

In a satire show I heard the first time of problems at A20 with some kind of bubbles in the asphalt...

(everything in german)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pbpg6GZKRbU

the problem is shortly described in the german wiki page, there are also some links describing it

As far as I understand it, they had problems with noise emissions, layed asphalt in the rain which didn't stitch very well to the concrete pavement, and now bubbles of water/air begin to pop up due to the heat.

A9 München - Nürnberg

Click on the title for all 123 pics

This set covers the A9 northbound from Kreuz Neufahrn near München (Munich) to Kreuz Nürnberg, a distance of 140 kilometers. The pics are taken in two days, since I stayed the night in the Altmühltal. There is very high truck traffic on this corridor, even with the recession and all.

One of my favourites (unless you don't want to drive more than 130, then it means a slalom among trucks - Berlin gibt richtig Gas )

Yeah, I had the same experience, it's 80 km/h on the right lane, or 160 km/h on the left lanes... If you want to drive 130 (like me) you're stuck between the slow trucks and the fast boys who want to race home after work.

When talking about speeds - according to latest Auto Bild poll:

2% <110 km/h
24% 110 - 130 km/h
36% 130 - 150 km/h
17% 150 - 170 km/h
8% >170 km/h
7% variously

This 8% might seem little, but it means that 1 in 12 cars goes >170.

I doubt that. Maybe that's how people want to drive, but do not actually drive. A lot of people are in the 130 - 170 range, but I don't think 15% drives over 170 km/h. Maybe on some quiet Autobahnen like A20 or A31.

It's 8, not 15%.

Well, much depends on the traffic. Make the same poll in Poland and you'll get that most people drive 120 - 130 km/h, whereas in heavy traffic 100 is a lot.

Nice pictures, I can tell by looking at these pictures that the New Jersery Turnpike must have been modeled after the German Autobahn.

When was the New Jersery Turnpike built?
The first German Autobahnen in the nineteen-thirties were modeled afte the American Parkways.
