Why do you see it as a fail? Because he actually accepted the ban? Or because they charged him?

I see it on the opposite as a positive thing. A minister who could easily avoid losing his driving license accepts the consequences. Especially when there are many that dont lose their driving license for severe violations.

The licence plate wasnt faked. It was actually the right number and right design. The problem was, that he did not used the metal plate that is issued by the police. As long as I am concerned rather nicely solved situation. I would see the fails with politicians driving drunk, refusing to be tested, causing accidents, not losing their license etc etc... and these happened rather often.

In my opinion, that's excessive. I think they should have re-issued the license plate and insisted that it be installed. If he failed to do it, then the authorities could take more severe action. The important thing here, in my opinion, is that no one's rights were violated and no one could have been harmed by his action.

btw im wondering where is this maserati supposed to have the front licence plate fitted? seems like the carmaker did not really considered the rather strict czech regulation regarding licence plates.

A minister should act like a role model. If the transport minister himself does things outside of the law, how can he be credible? Just like these police officers who set up speed traps but drive 180 km/h themselves, or a public traffic safety advocate who was caught driving under influence. (both happened in the Netherlands).

When someone is charged with violating the strict letter of a law while complying with its intent and purpose, the court should dismiss the charges.

to the minister's defense, fact is, normally this kind of offence is seen only as a light violation /everyone including police knows the regulation is rediculously strict/ usually penalized just by a fine rather than driving ban. im sure if he wasnt a minister he would have gone away with much lighter penalty.

Exactly. This is what lawyers call malicious prosecution.

Possibly, and a cynical jerk would've fought it on those grounds. The minister didn't, though. And if I were him, I wouldn't have, either.

I agree that it was politically wise for him to not fight it. Anyway, we seem to be drifting off topic.

I fully agree on that. However, in the mirror of the past and some present state of the Czech politics his and police's actions afterwards seem to be more promising than the fact that he violated the law. It is indeed a fail neverthless.

To get back on the asfalt trail. Due 3. December should be opened according the RSD new section of D1 and R55 near Kroměříž in the east of CZ.

Here is the plan. Green section should be opened, however not fully.


The actuall opened section is depicted here with the pink highlight. The rest should follow in the next year summer. The delay is due to the "elevated undeground waters" postponing the completition of the interchange.

Here follows photos from construction of D3.

The location is in the South Bohemia. We talk about the red highlighted section of D3.


Pictures from these galleries:

and

Current end of D3 nearby on the right Tabor, which is connected by I19 flying over the motorway.






nearby Košice (in CZ :o)


Crossing current I/3 and railtrack and river Lužnice near Veselí nad Lužnicí.




Merging on I/3 that is already bypassing Veselí nad Lužnicí.

The fact is that the whole story of the D3-construction is the project "for more than one generation". Well. In spite of this fact the small progress in the region Tabor will be the significant progress (many small towns and villages between Tabor and Veseli on the I/3 national road. The complete highway between Prague and Linz, it is like a dream.
As for this section, some delay could be expected there....

I hope the road from Prague to Linz will be completed around 2020 or thereabout. When do you suppose the section of the D3 between Tabor and Prague might be completed?

That is the right question. No idea from my side. Why? The long-term tricky point is the first section (Prague/Outer Bypass R1 - Sazava valley (enviromental issues there) - Benesov. The "replacement solution" might be the road I/3 Benesov - Junction Mirosovice and the highway D1. Sure, that there are some traffic disadvantages as well.........This section of D1 already sufferers due to many traffic jams (without another/additional traffic) and the widening of the I/3 to Mirosovice would be certainly no simple project.....2020, it could be the (a bit optimistic) goal there....

The RSD is about to give notice to all the bilboard advertising firms that rent place alongside the roads. It will however take few years before the bilboards dissapear as the agreements are long term.
