I think it's something like SEK6000 (€600 more or less) to get a custom plate in Sweden.

In the US I've seen lots of plates which are obviously custom plates, regarding the words that are on it. In England someone paid lots of money for the WE5T HAM plate

The second new E18 motorway stretch opening of the fall took place just a few days ago: E18 by Västerås, about 6.5 km.

It's a nice piece of infrastructure but very vulnerable. In 1990 it was rammed by a ship and traffic had to deviate for a year causing massive traffic jams. Btw, I don't I've seen a similar design on a motorway bridge anywhere in Europe.

I knew I could count on you giving me a good example
Have there been any accidents there like the one in Södertälje?

The 90 speed limit on the E4 north of Stockholm has been expended a few km, now it goes until Häggvik. Going south from Stockholm, one will now not hit 110 until after Södertälje! The 110 that came before Södertälje has now been changed to 100.

What's with the obsession with low speed limits? It is not that those funny limits are making your roads more safer if you compare it to rest of the Europe.

Switzerland is surprisingly low. But since they just counted the motorways, it's still possible.

Interesting diagram I would have never tought France with their aggressive driving culture and high limits (130km/h) would have less accidents than for example Norway (100km/h)....;P A lot of these accidents are aubviously caused by snow and ice covered motorways and on/off ramps. (Wich i guess are also frequent in Switzerland)

But the roads that are given a lesser speed limit in question are roads with many accidents, while good roads with few accidents are getting limit raised to 120.

Sweden recently changed many speed limits. Some motorway stretches became 120 km/h. However due to the environmental policy, the average speed limit of all roads could not increase so as to not increase the co2 emissions. Thus, since some roads saw a raised speed limit, many others saw a lowered speed limit. Much of it was deemed due to safety reasons though -- 40, 60, 80, 100, 120 became new legal speed limits, so roads that were better fit for 60 but that were 70 so as to not be so slow were lowered whereas some 90s were raised to 100 etc. Overall average speed limits went down by about 1% I think.

I think the "great" Hungarian result can be thanked to those truck and bus drivers who oversleep behind the steering wheel. However, the number of fatal road accidents has decreased by one third since last year, so at least there is some progress.
