The last week end I took the A4 motorway, the entrance in Paris is really fantastic.

Can someone explain what these arrows mean?

It means if you are overtaking, you have to keep right because you can't see what's after the turn.

That's pretty close to the curve. I think overtaking should be restricted much earlier. If there is a car flying from the opposite direction, I don't think that there is enough warning (although of course, a good driver should see the turn in advance and not overtake just because the centre line is broken ).

Do you mean the "spaguetti junction" at Porte de Bercy ?

I agree, however in the Netherlands, they overreact this stuff to another level, sometimes straight flat-out roads have solid center lines for miles.

This hasn't always be the case, earlier, the solid center line really meant it is dangerous to overtake. Now, almost every road has a solid center line, and people don't take it serious anymore.

No, but they might update in on their website...
At least the maps of the iberian peninsula, with a 1cm=4km's scale were updated in previous years... but not to all scales... the 1cm=10km's still has the 2006 version.

Anyway, why do you ask? Anything in particular?

As for non urban motorways I guess the A7, between Valence and Orange must be in the top of the most busy... especially during summer.

Yes definitely. This can be terrible at times.

71.000 on average.

That's not very much, though summer volumes are much higher.

As busiest motorway, i guess the A4 in Paris.
