Well, things are different. And please, Gibraltar is... well, just Gibraltar .

By the way, I had no Google Maps nor other things while driving last Sunday. I just entered points A, B and C, and the route Google Maps suggested was the same I did.

Amusing accident occurred tonight in Bratislava. Hungarian driver trusted her navigation so much, she made it to the tram track and stuck there.


As usual, Slovak drivers were that smart (read curious), they collided right beside it

There is a good reason they don't exist outside of UK, that is because they are idiotic

wait, it is manned level crossing, so when the red light apears you must mannualy apply the barrier, and on green light you must manually raise it up again?

Never seen one of those crossings before. You get some with no barrier, I've seen crossings with a person there, but not a level crossing where you have to open it yourself.

Yes it is. I remember a while ago, someone saw it and had a massive go at us for being way off topic, not sure if he was joking or whether he misunderstood the title.

I can't see why one should bother exiting the car and lowering the gate when red light appears. I would just stay in my car and wait for the train to pass and to the light to turn green again...

I'm going to guess that it goes back down on it's own.

No, at 1:04 the guy pulls a lever that lowers the gate.
