Trucks making U-turns on a motorway. Idiots and lots of lucky people.

It's an old video, but you notice some weird things; all trucks turn around, and the only trucks visible seems to be coming from the on-ramps, which indicate something special has to be going on.

AFAIK it had something to do with height restrictions that the truck drivers didn't know about(and there were no signs in advance) so they had no other option than to turn around and exit the highway.

Why did they have to fine you? It wasn't your fault, and you broke no law.

In Italy, whenever you crash from behind a car ahead of you, it's your fault. Always.

Yep, It is the same law in Greece, whenever you crash someone from behind no matter what it is completely your fault.

I think this is the same in all of Europe. I had an accident in 2006 in France where I hit another car on the motorway in a braking session. I got a fine for not keeping enough distance, even though the police was not on the scene when the accident happened, they just give this fine by default it seems.

I have now remembered that it's like that in Portugal. Not in the UK though.

Of course people are getting nuts, when they aren't allowed to eat or drink more than half a day. It's insane what people will do to please the lord.

Morocco, Casablanca-Marrakech

Spanish people with their guide (irresponsable) cross highway for going to shop. On the other side, there was not station.
