The United States have no tripoints... just two huge borders with Canada on one side and Mexico on the other side...

We should stop off topic... All northern and central America countries haven't tripoints except

- Mexico, Belize and Guatemala
- Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador



by the way about the United States, within states boundaries they have a four-point

Complete with a sign pointing to a village located 657 km away at the other end of the country. Now that is something. By the way, that is Korczowa AFAIK.

I always think about this road sign. Is there anyone who can read that while on a motorway or any other road? Masterpiece of idiocy.

It's not correct, at least for Sweden. It has had some 120-sections a year or two by now.

Those are general limits stated on respective law. Local adjustments might be higher and lower than general speed limit as well. There are also some 130 kph sections in Macedonia and 160 kph sections under detailed consideration in Slovakia by now.

AFAIK this is compact version. I have already seen expanded version:



Hope it is just proposal.

Are the 160 km/h sections in SK just a proposal, or are already a reality?

It is just proposal for a long time, but it is rather political promise. There are lot of issues like attributes of carriageway, curve radius, etc. And at least number of sections, where it could be, is ridiculously small.

Eventually, it is not allowed according to current Slovak law.

In Italy non-urban motorways with at least 3 lanes per direction can have, in theory, 150kph speed limit, but currently there are no stretches with that limit implemented. The decision must be taken by the company that manages the stretch of motorway.

More like 10 years, but most motorways have 110, even those newly constructed. The Border signs say 110, tough you wouldn't find a motorway in Sweden without posted speed limits anymore.

On the map Norway should be red as the general speed limit is 80km/h - but like Sweden motorways have posted higher speed limit (100).
