Not totally sure, but I want to say I-95/MA 128 in the Boston, MA area. It is a very generic image, though.

Wooo... and I said it was though

#4 is Malmö, the way running to the Øresund Bridge, which is a motorway/railway bridge

#3 is not Essen, but good guess

Obvious hints:
#2 and #3 are in Europe
#1 and the bonus pic are in NA

Actually, it's known as Despeñaperros (translated would be something like 'where dogs plunge into the void').

The complete name of the place is Desfiladero de Despeñaperros, but 'desfiladero' only means 'narrow pass'.

It's for sure one of the most famous (and worst) motorway streches in Spain.

I haven't driven there for several years (now we have A-66 as a good alternative to get from North to South), but I think it was between 50-80km/h all the time.

You can find some crazy people driving up to 100 km/h though, like this Toyota Celica:


Anyway a couple of months ago it was approved to build a new route there. It will allow a speed between 100-120 km/h.

i guess that direction north was in use while it was 2 lane road, and direction south was added when it was upgraded into motorway, right?

Some features in the pic shows that it is not South Africa (the signs).

Looks like Italy to me, but I can't put in anywhere. I'm not sure, if that sign is even green. Am I seeing green instead of blue?
