Still an interesting debate, and visa procedures has everything to do with border crossings.

Yes, some people continued to ignore that offtopic nonsense was being deleted, that is why the thread was closed for some time. I'll reopen it.

It has been unusually hot in the last week in Estonia - up to 30C in some places - which has caused almost daily thunderstorms. We usually have this kind of weather in August 6 weeks ago there was still snow on the ground.
A very nice photo to illustrate all this. Photo by Jüri Voit, taken from http://www.ilmajaam.ee/1240420/lugej...ed-piksenooled

A Gumball driver crashed at E4 Mjölby. This is a ridiculus circus, these rich and famous stars drive however they want not respecting anyone not even the police. If they break the speed limits they get a fine of 4000SEK(438EUR/562$) which they pay with a smile and drive further at the same speed.

A Bulgarian guy drove 13km wrong way on the Italian A4 between Portogruaro and Latisana. Stopped by the police he said: "I made an U-turn because I had no money to pay the toll."

Speaking of that... what happens on tolled motorways (Italy, France, Spain, etc.) if you get to the toll gate and have no money, no credit card or any other means for payment?

They give you a receipt (mancato pagamento - failure to pay), and you can pay later via internet or at your bank. If you don't pay within 15 days, they can call public force to obtain their money from you.

Incredible, other two episodes of wrong way driving happened on the Italian motorways in the past 24 hours. One on the A28 near Pordenone (ended with a bad crash) and the other (an elderly woman) on the A14dir near Ravenna.

which means immediate headlines..

Some of the drivers hit the pedal to the metal and drove 205km/h in a
residential area. So the police arrested a couple of them=GOOD JOB ! Finnish police. I know it's a spectacular show, but these rich playboys think they own the world and that they can bribe themselfes away, which they probably could in eastern europe but not in Finland.




Thumbs up dork ! In sweden max fine is flat about 436 EUR which is chickenfeed for the Hoff.

In Finland it depends on your income, there's no limit and if you're rich you can look forward to a 30.000$ fine and suspended driver's license.

For everyone. The police have even have the right to confiscate your vehicle.

In 2010

The 37-year-old "swede" (not ethnic) was caught when he drove his Mercedes SLS AMG at 300 km / h on a highway south of Bern in Switzerland.

For anyone wondering where the allowable speed was 120 km / h

- I think the speedometer, which is new, is not working properly, said the Swede to the police according to the Telegraph.

- We have never seen a car that has been traveling faster in the country, says a person saying the police to Telegraph.

The penalty was 300 daily fine of a total of 7.5 million. SEK (1.123.225$/873.291EUR)

The speeding fine was so high is because in Switzerland speeding fines are based on how much you earn, combined with how much he drove too fast.
