You live in Vilnius, but you've never been to Belarus? (or Russia)

Maybe one day I will visit Minsk But I have attraction for western direction, not eastern. And yeah - need Visa and sometimes you have to stand like 4 hours at the border.

I've noticed that even neighbors of these countries don't go there often. Only Poles go to Belarus and Ukraine sometimes, but we never hear Hungarians or Slovaks going to Ukraine (and you don't need visa for it).

I drove some B-roads in Eastern Switzerland today and noticed a lot of road works. Especially on the roads between Chur and Flims/Laax, between Chur and Churwalden and between Davos and Landquart the Swiss are building wider mountain roads and tunnels that by-pass villages and towns. Very good development that should raise the quality of life in those towns and villages and ease the weekend traffic to- and from major ski resorts in the region.

The A3 highway still suffers from under-capacity in the weekends as it cannot cope with the traffic from Southern Germany and the Zurich region that go to Eastern Switzerland during the weekend. But I doubt it's high on the agenda to do anything about this problem. Upgrade of the northern Zurich-ring road should have more priority.

I have updated my list with Spanish A.C. autovias. 704.5 kilometers, but some notes:

Some "autovias" in Majorca are actually 2 lane roads, but by some reason they decided to put all the roads with a single number.
I didn't remember well the Tenerife autopistas as I was only 5 years old when I clinched those. Same to a section of C-32 (On the part that was A-16), clinched when I was only 2 years old! (But with probability of reclinch that on next years)
And finally, again on the C-32, but on the part that was A-19 and is going to be A-2, I was tempted to write 108 as the second placemark instead of 99. The reason is that I want to reach Sant Vicenç de Montalt.

Interesting thread. All I know is that I've driven over 7000 miles for work alone in 9 countries, not counting personal road trips through the States.

Only in the US/Canada for me.

Elsewhere I tend to use public transport.

The way I see it; the road is overcapacity but suffers from under-capacity. Ie. it has to little capacity to deal with the peak traffic thus at those times it's over capacity.

I prefer the train but I did two longer trips in 1998 & 2001

Tallinn-St Petersburg & St Petersburg-Helsinki both ways



In 1995 I met a girl in Riga, we went to Sigulda and back. She drove her VW Golf and I was the passenger. In Sigulda we took a ride with the cable car.
