And now some pics from A20, one of the motorways with almost no traffic in Germany. There are not many like this in this country. A20 is relatively new, being constructed as part of the infrastructure program to connect east and west part of the country.

You can only dream of seeing empty roads like these on the Kölner Ring.

I don't want to bring back the discussion about HH and 88, but I have only today seen more then one car either EI or IN, with HH or 88 or 8888 after it.

Probably rental cars? All over Germany there are rental cars on the road - the bigger ones like Europcar, Buchbinder or Herz usually start with M, DU, HH, WI and have similar registrations after the area code.

I guess he meant IN-HH *** or EI-** 88. The districts of Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen, Ingolstadt and Eichstätt are in Bayaria. The recommendation are made by the state but every district can handle it their way. So the district of Bad Tölz does not allow TÖL-HH but Ingolstadt and Eichstätt do.

That was what I meant.
I know IN SS *** is not allowed, the gf of a colleague from work has the name Steffi S(something), and she wanted to register her car with her initials, but was turned down.

I remember seeing a car with the license plate "FÜ-HR 188" in Bavaria last year, so it's not exactly like banning certain particular combinations stops their ilk...

Of course not.
Anyway, I heard that the Netherlands don't allow GVD. Is this true?

The state of the german motorways hit the dutch news today, featuring a item about the poor state of the motorways and it's slow and widely spread roadworks. Is anything changing on the political side?

The Autobahns are actually in the best condition (pavement-wise). Local and state roads tend to vary a lot more (for the worse). But for the Dutch media, German roads means the Autobahn and nothing else.

There are lots of media outlets, but most appear to just echo each other like parrots. This becomes clear after you browse through Google News search, most of the news is just the same information. I think the recent burst of news about German roads in the Netherlands came after this article: So schlecht ist der Zustand der deutschen Straßen

The central issues are the bridges. Many bridges were built about 50 years ago and were not designed for the today's load, especially caused by the trucks. The Autobahn bridges and viaducts are in focus but there are also a lot of municipal bridges....

The pavement is not in a good condition. There are also many bad sections on Autobahns. There are problems with concrete mixture, problems with heat in summer... These problems are sometimes on old sections but also on new stretches which are bumpy! It's a shame!
