All moroccan forum is there ! Muttie, Tetwani, Tom Raider, me.

The traffic is too dangerous. The 3 cars cross the streets at 50km/h and they only win 10 seconds.

This week, 7 people before iftar (eating time) loosed more : the life.

Same thing in Italy just before an important soccer match.
You DO NOT want to be on the streets at those times.

What about when you are hit from behind and you have a draw-bar stretching out of the rear bumper?

Same thing in Romania. If you hit a car from behind you get a fine by default. The bad thing is that sometimes you are doing a legal 100 km/h on a national road, and a slow car comes from a side street at 20-30 km/h and enters the main road. If you can't pass that car (because of traffic from other side) and you can't break hard enough you will hit that car and it's your fault (even though he should have stayed on that side street untill you pass).

I really hope that this was a joke and there isn't anyone that stupid:



Did he go by public transport or not?

The first one reminds me of an Ikea commercial that they used to air here. Personally, I think it was a "joke". Then again...

The second one was amusing. Wonder if the **** was using the tunnel for a shortcut.

There was a similar incident here a few years ago in the Mt. McDonald tunnel. This is used by Canadian Pacific for their westbound trains. Turns out the idiot behind the wheel thought he was on the Trans Canada Highway... Useless idiot Manitoba drivers...

Update. For driving in the wrong direction on motorway you'll now pay 1,200 € and get all 18 penalty points in Slovenia (you'll lose your driving license). If you drive drunk (DUI), you'll have to go to the doctor and rehabilitation program.

We once had two people in two different cars hold hands by reaching out of their cars and holding hands while driving at 60 miles on hour down a four lane wide freeway in our home city.

Italy, A14 near Pesaro, 3 hours ago. An Opel in front of me goes real slow. I pass it... a not-more-than-12 girl at the wheel. She coulnd't even see over the dashboard, her father on the other seat smiling. My blood froze.
