This forum has the very best data in all the world and a lot of the statistics are already in Skyscrapercity forums or on a forum members PC if someone would post the link for me that would be great.

The data required is for FULL Controlled Access Motorways with restrictions on slow vehicles along their length and a normal extra urban speed limit of 110kph + ( but an 80kph tunnel between 2 x 110kph+ sections is also allowed. Hard shoulder/stopping strip as normal save where a bridge or tunnel was too expensive to widen or build.

1+1 with motorway restriction not allowed, it will not be 110kph+

I don't want to do expressways as they are of variable quality and are not access controlled normally, eg a tractor can go on one. If the speed limit on an expressway is 110kph + and it leads directly onto a 110kph+ Motorway ( or off one) it can be counted as Motorway.

Draft Table. Needs filling with data. I'll wikify it soon, honest. Same Links as here.

Ireland looks like this. EG each year has a Motorway Network Total Size and Link to data.

I can insert those into the table above as they come in

Example.

---------------

Ireland. Motorway Totals.

2007 600km
2008 700km
2009 850km
2010 1000km
2011 1000km
2012 1000km
2013 1000km

I got removed 3 wisdom teeth. One upper with no problema and two lower surgically. At one of them hey had to shave off some of the jaw bone. That feels like having really loud construction drilling machine inside your head and it hurts a lot after anestetic loses effect. Operation took one hour but was necessary as the tooth was already growing backwards into the jaw bone. As I heard, by not removing that it could lead to very serious pain at teh wrong moment.

In Iceland there are plenty of space and free parking, still some driver calling himself no 1 dad had difficulties finding a place to park at.

I hate people parking like that.
Yesterday I went to a movie theatre, multiplex with big parking lot and stuff. Lots of empty spaces but you know, a little far from the entrance (like, 30 seconds on foot). Yet, some people parked on the driveways between the parking spots, almost blocking my way out of my parking spot, just to get closer to the entrance. I was about to leave a pretty graphic note on the windshield but my girlfriend was there and she wouldn't approve.

At the same time, a guy was driving wrong way in the driveway to exit the parking lot, just to avoid having to do a longer tour and exit on the other side.

I just hate Italian drivers.

1500 suporters of the Hungarian football team just arrived in Bucharest by train. There is a small war right now in Bucharest railway station between them and the Romanian police.

I'm surprised NordikNerd ran into him twice. I realize Iceland's got a small population, but still....

The comments on the articles about this are also just great, so much hatred and stupidity. I wait to see the Romanian "performance" in Budapest.

Print some copies of it and keep them in your car. Just in case...


Translation: If you f**k like you park, you're surely a cuckold.

Those people probably don't care much about football, it's just an excuse to do violence and vandalism.
It happens often before many matches, in some countries more than in others. In Britain, Italy and Balkan countries they're often very bad, in Spain, for example, football hooliganism it's almost unknown. I watched a Liga match at the Camp Nou in 2011, nobody checked us at the entry (apart for the ticket) and everybody could move around and sit in any free seat. In Italy there are stricter controls at Serie C matches.

Talking of silly soccer wars, my favorite sports talk show opened last night with this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dgPV-9I4wg

(And Keith's not nationalistic at all. For most of the past decade he was a very left-wing political commentator....)
