I worked out some statistics of the congestion charge in Göteborg, which was activated on 1/1/13. Traffic is in an upward trend since its implementation so far.

Daily toll cordon passages (adjusted for number of toll days);

* January: 482,000
* February: 515,000
* March: 542,000
* April: 575,000
* May: 600,000

January is a statistical outlier, being the lowest volume month of the year in most countries. However there is a continuous upward trend through the first 5 months.

Unfortunately there are no pre-toll statistics.

A "few" shots of the E18 widening & re-alignment past Rinkeby, Ursvik & Tensta:

Amazing how everything changes so quickly in Stockholm. When I last drove on the E18 at Tensta there were traffic lights and speed limit 70km/h.

I remember when that SEB Bank building was built. It was in 1988-89 and I was living in Rissne at that time. Seems like it has became even bigger during the years.

Shortest motorway ? how long ?

The road 34 from the E4 to Linköping/Ryd is also very short; 3,2 km.

Some bad Swedish road signs that needs to be changed!

Although I quite like that Swedish warning signs have yellow/amber background color rather than white like rest of most of Europe; there are some signs that should be changed though.

These signs should be white background color/standard in the world;

Do not enter / No entry:

changed to >>>>

Yield / Give Way:

changed to >>>

This sign is confusing and silly.

Others danger:

should be changed into >>>

I don't really see the problem. The layout is exactly the same, the meaning is perfectly clear, the only difference is the background colour. If you have problems understanding the Swedish version, you should probably not drive there.

Confusing and silly ist the word. You´re just so right! But only the no entry sign and the yield sign should have their background color changed to white, other warning signs should be kept yellow, just like in America. To avoid confusion, the yield sign should have the word väjningsplikt added. I can´t believe the different DOT of the European countries don´t pay attention to essential things like these.

I like warning signs being yellow background, but keep the Yield and No entry sign white like rest of the world. Seem more standard that way.

Color have nothing to do with snow. Southern Sweden does not have that much snow. Norway has lots of snow, yet they use white background.

That would look awesome! Väjningsplikt could also be "ge väg" - give way.

Are there any potholes on any highways in Sweden? It's impressing that roads are so smooth despite severe winters.

No, it couldn't. It's either "väja" or "väjningsplikt", the latter being the better since it's less ambiguous.

Most motorways and national roads have very high priority when it comes maintenance, so potholes are more common on non-national roads. I can't speak for the north of Sweden though.

Recommended lower speed. Often posted with 30 km/h in an area that has 50 km/h, meaning that there is a recommendation to lower your speed to 30, but it is not required. It's a zone type sign meaning there has to be an end of sign before it is lifted.
