You better watch out with that - €5 for a sticker, but €40 for a fine.

I wonder if a sticker can improve environment.

Sure, environments of some government wallets are quite improved.

You can get a sticker for 5 euros at the pomp station. But some internet sites said the actual controles started at the first of january.
Well, we didn't get a fine.

Wait, what now? Do you have to get a sticker of some kind to enter the center of German cities? Of what size do those cities have to be?

it's not dependent of the city's size.

I already posted a list of cities that have these so called "Umweltzonen", where you need such a sticker.

Ok, could be a good thing to know. I haven't seen anything about it earlier in the thread. The choice of cities seems a bit random (though I'm sure it's not). Where's Hamburg, or Bremen?

Not that small - 24km

Not yet. It will be mostly finished at the end of 2009.

Thanks for the update! Good to see they're making progress over there. I didn't like that section near Eisenach at all. What will happen with the A4 section that won't be A4 anymore soon? Will they keep that as a city expy or sth?

breaking news!

Federal government will release 173.6 million euros for the Riederwaldtunnel of the A66 in Frankfurt (the missing part east of the A661, will be 3+3)!
Construction can start in summer 2009.

Great. With the LKW-maut, they may be able to finance another tunnel to the Miquelallee in the future, completing the A66?

That's nothing. You should see some of the cut&fills on the Spanish AP7 between Valencia and Alicante. Massive!

I made this picture in 2005. The area recieved about 2 meters of snow in some areas. And no, it's not in the Alps, but in the Bayerischer Wald near Großer Arber I believe.
