I know some nations waged wars without any reason or due to trivial reason. Does it really matter, which motorway was first opened, Croatian or Slovenian? Ok, for you guys it does ... And I hope you know, i’m just joking about this gun. Or do you really have the gun?

And to bring about peace in former Yugoslavia, i tell you, i like both, slovenian and croatian motorways . And i'm jealous, we don't have such great motorway network.

^ No, I have nukes. There was never any war between the two nations (which is rare for bordering nations in Europe), and never will be. I just corrected him, b/c he wrote 1971 instead of 1972. Had he written 1972, I'd never have written we got it 1 day before. Back on topic, please.

we are just fighting for 5 squids and 3 shrimps in a bay other things are standing well.

there was never doubt about which one was first - it was slovenian! they should have been opened at the same date, but with our ceremony was something ****ed up, so we opened it with one day delay and i have never known if it was in 71 or 72 - that was my problem

Actually it's like saying that Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Cyprus entered EU 1 hour before Malta, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Slovenia.

Right, back to topic.

I'd like to post something about polish motorways, but it's a big problem.

Oldest motorway is A6 near Szczecin, opened 27.09.1936. But is it really polish motorway? Untill 1945 Szczecin was a german city...

First polish expressway was Gdynia Bypass (eastern carriageway, Gdynia-
-Łęgowo) constructed in 1973-1977, opened 15.12.1977.
First motorway A-4 Chrzanów-Balice (part of Katowice-Kraków motorway), constructed 1976-1983, opened 3.01.1983.

It's an abbreviation for Turn Off To Stay On. So the longest stretch without TOTSO's means the longest stretch of a motorway without a need to turn off the main lanes for that motorway.

aha! well, in Croatia are all motorways built in this way and i like it a lot! so when you exit of main lanes, you know that you're about to change A number, or you're exiting motorway. so, longest TOTSO in Croatia would be A1 in its whole lenght.

The TOTSO itself is a point on a motorway. So a better conclusion would be then, that there are no (or very few) TOTSO's in Croatia. It's my fault. My post wasn't really clear.
