Currently, the fuel in Germany (super 95) is almost €0,20 cheaper as in Holland. Last week I filled my tank for €1,42/l at a german gas station.

Today Super is 1,51€ here in Passau. And if you cross the river to Austria it's around 1,30€.

They won`t lower the taxes here, they make too much money out of it...

considering what people earn in bulgaria, the gas in bulgaria is much more expensive than in germany, even if the actual price in germany is higher. the average bulgarian can buy a few hundred litres of gas/month ... the average german several times more ...

but there´s gas here which is really cheap, only 50 cent, and many make their cars ready to be filled with gas besides benzin.

Because of malfunctioning traffic lights at the offramp near Arnhem, there is now a 25km international traffic jam.

10 km on the German A3 between Rees and the border, and 15 km on the Dutch A12 from the border to IC Velperbroek.

It must a chaos there. This is one of the busiest intersecions without free flow in Holland. I suppose the N325 must also be jammed?

I don't often hear about traffic jams crossing the dutch border. Does it often happen? I have experienced it once, about 10 years ago when coming from Belgium. A giant truck accident just accross the border caused quite a big traffic jam.

It's quite common to have a traffic jam immediatly after the Dutch border. It happens often at the A16, A76 and A12 motorways.

Interesting dates. Notice the huge percentage of Schwerverkehr near the eastern borders. A6 Rozvadov border crossing has 50,1% of SV.

Still 50% is very very very much. Other border crossings show 20-30%, and less.

very strange:

A1 AD Vulkaneifel - Mehren: 4000 vehicles

a friend told me that only the traffic from the A1 (from Daun to Trier and Trier to Daun) is counted there. very strange in my eyes. that must mean, that the place where they count must be in the Dreieck before the merge with the A48. when just looking at the stats, it looks very strange. here is a small draw of that section


AS Daun/End of A1
||
|| 8100 vehicles
||
AD Vulkaneifel ======================== AS Ulmen ===> A48 to Koblenz
|| .................................23800 vehicles
|| 4000 vehicles
||
AS Mehren
||
|| 20900 vehicles
||
AS Manderscheid
||
||
A1 to Trier

here is a map view of the small piece that patrick mentioned
http://maps.google.de/maps?q=mehren&...33388&t=k&z=15

the a48 and a1 merge in very short distance to AS Mehren so the only possible explanation is that the statistics only show the traffic of the inner lane (A1) and that sounds logical when half of the traffic from Daun-AS Vulkaneifel (8100) is going towards Trier!

so just a fault by the people who made the statistics....

I think it's only the through lanes, between the points where the A1 meets the A48. Possibly, only 4000 vehicles continue on the A1 there, the rest uses the A48 towards Koblenz or Trier.

I just know the traffic there is really scarce given the fact it's Germany and A1.
