It depends. Although replacing "ß" with an "ss" isn't correct in the sense of spelling (in Germany), it is the only possibility if you are writing on a non-German keyboard for instance. Everyone would understand it, and it is the correct replacement of "ß".
As I posted before, "ß" is never used in Switzerland, they always write "ss" instead (Strasse, aussen, Mass,...). So therefore you could argue with your teacher that you're using the Swiss norms of spelling.

The teacher would say, that we are in Germany and here the ß rule counts.

as far as i remember, there were some suggestions about official replacing ß with ss, but it seems it didn't live long

and to get back on topic, some pics showing A48 between Koblenz and Daun, and A1 between Daun and Trier

it is mostly renovated, but let's say 10 years ago, the most parts of this 110km stretch looked and felt like this






half sign?

old sign right, new sign left

old sign left, new sign right


the whole tour (A48, A1, A602) will be available at the Autobahnatlas in february

Funny, dutch signage also used to be dark blue instead of light blue. I prefer the darker ones.

WTF! That must be the most dangerous situation i've ever seen on a motorway ever! Bushes blocking the view, zero entrance speed, no hard shoulder. I would shit my pants if i had to enter there with my 18 meter fully loaded lorry at night in the fog or rain. Germans must have really big balls

Dutch Forumer Frits has made some pics today around Velbert. There is a short "hidden" motorway there, part of the A44. Velbert is located in the Ruhr area, just south of Essen and north of Wuppertal. The whole place pretty much looks like a dump, but take a look yourself:

A44 Velbert 72 Pics

That's one isolated autobahn. Interesting, I haven't yet seen an exit sign on an on-ramp. Oh, boy!

It starts at Breitscheid, via de A524 to the A59 through Duisburg ending in Dinslaken.

No it's in Duisburg, 500km away from Berlin. So yes, from the Brussels point of view, it's before Berlin
