For example, the number of vehicles circulating in the capital of Algeria is almost equal to all the vehicles available throughout Morocco.
looooooooooooooool You think you know but you have no idea!

BTW, we are talking about highways between cities!

Yes, there are two freeways between Johannesburg and Pretoria: the N1 and the R21. They are both being widened at the moment (possibly the work is already finished), the N1 from 2x3 to 2x4 (or 2x5 in places it seems) and the R21 from 2x2 to 2x4.

Here's the N1 at Midrand, around half way between Joburg and Pretoria: http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&so...,216.99,,0,4.5

And the R21:

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&so...2,167,,0,-0.41

Openstreetmap gives a clearer map as it labels freeways in blue: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=-3...om=14&layers=M

Every day there are 2 million vehiucles circulating Algiers, and Morocco has 2.5 million.

The bypass roads are long in Algiers, the south bypass (80km) is the equivalent of Casa-Rabat. even if I don't know, I can say than its traffic is minimum 20% of vehicles in Algiers. you can calculate.

42 000 vehicles/day in 2009 and 46 000 v/d forsee in 2010 (increase of 7,7 like in 2008 and 2009).

Wikipedia is good, but not all the time Casamor. Maybe 55 000 v/d are in july and august.


adm.co.ma

But this is the busiest african highway.

PS : no figures, no evidences for others.

Ça va! Je te dis qu'on parle de trafic autoroutier entre 2 villes! On ne parle pas des périphériques et des rocades!

Le nombre de voitures qui circulent à Casa est plusieurs fois supérieur à celui de celles qui se dirigent vers Rabat!

We're talking about traffic between the two cities. We're not talking about bypasses.

The number of vehicles circulating in Casablanca is many times higher than those heading towards Rabat.

The German - Swiss ferry crossing between Friedrichshafen and Romanshorn (photo taken in Friedrichshafen). I guess the Swiss Lamborghini (?) owners club had had a field trip to Germany to check whether their cars were still functioning properly...

Acording to wikipedia, the N1 between Johannesburg and Pretoria (the Ben Schoerman Highway) carries 300 000 cars a day.

I've crossed the border between USA-Canada. One question I have for you guys - why an earth do they require you to give them your licence plates when you're buying something in the duty free store?















There was probably about 5 cameras taking your pictures as you proceeded to the booth much easier crossing into Canada.

Canada and the United States should introduce a customs union. This reminds me of Europe 40 years ago.

Ever since September 11th, the US has been taking ridicuolous measures in the name of security. That's one of them.

Thank you for the answer. Unfortunately from time to time some suspects of terrorism did entered in the US using main airports and legal passports, right under the nose of Federal Authorities, while me or other East-Europeans probably wouldn't get a visa for a tourist visit.

You are right here. I barely got a 3-month visa. Besides terorism, they are very suspicios on everyone not to remain in the US after the visa expired and work there illegaly.

People who live and work here Illegally is HUGE & heated political issue here in the USA. Well I agree we shouldn't be putting so much focus on the northern border. Instead we should be moving many of those resources to the southern one. Much of that border is crime ridden and very violent with drug warfare. Tourists, journalists, and govt officials are getting gunned down on a daily basis in Mexican border towns. Unfortunately some of that is now starting to spill over to our side. It is so bad in some places that the Feds have repeatedly sent the Army National Guard to assist the United States Border Patrol and ICE.
In comparison, the Canadian border is almost always very peaceful and safe. We have the longest unmilitarized common border in entire world. The United States and Canada enjoy the largest trade relationship in the world. For example trade between the countries supports over 103,000 jobs in Wisconsin alone. Many here jokingly refer to Canada as our odd northern state. Both of the countries share a British heritage and founding. Also we share sports leagues, telephone systems, transportation networks, and tourists etc.
