Even the license plate size difference must be bizarre to see :p

wonder what it cost to ship that over..and it's a blinking sunfire..they're like as common a car as you'll find over around here.
Not unusual in Croatia to see a car with US or Canada plates. My neighbour has Ontario plates... I've seen Australian and NZ plates too!

In Baambrugge, just south of my hometown, I've once seen a California license plate. But we are getting offtopic....

I remember that 5 years ago in Poland (again ), I was driving from German/Polish border Świecko near Świebodzin, I saw two trucks from Iran. My first though of their cargo were bombs!

Not all Iranian trucks are bad guys

I once saw 2 Mongolian trucks at the border with NL/DE near Venlo.

In my hometown I have seen some trucks from the Caucasus (Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan). Also 2 cars from Iceland. Those are the 'rarest' plates I have seen so far in the Netherlands. Abroad, I have seen plates from Libya (on Malta), Jordan (in Yugoslavia, end of the 80's) and Maroc (in France). And of course I see regularely licenseplates from the rest of Europe which is not so strange, apart from the Iceland cars. But of course all that s caused by the open borders in Europe (which brings us back ontopic )

Not so fast there cowboy! I'm thinking of making a special thread about license plates which you have seen! Is there any one who speaks for the plan?

Well this summer I saw that turks living in Scandinavian countries and Germany started to use new routes, like Czec. rep -> Slovakia -> Hungary -> Serbia. I saw them mainly on the motorway between Prague - Brno and Bratislava.

US and Canadian license plates aren't that very uncommon in Europe; I see a few of them a year. In Switzerland I saw a Mexican plate (Nuevo León).

For me it was the first time to see one in Europe. The furthest away I've ever seen were four Chinese rally cars on the A2 near Breukelen. And in Fairbanks, Alaska, I've seen a Florida license plate. That must have been a hell of a drive to get there.
btw, Verso, did you return from your holiday

I don't know in the world. In the European Union (but not in Europe, in Africa), is the Spanish-Moroccan border crossings in Ceuta and Melilla.

The busiest in the world is San Diego - Tijuana if I'm correct. The busiest in the Netherlands is Breda - Antwerpen, 70.000 vehicles a day.
