Red: State requires both front and rear plates for passenger vehicles.
Blue: State requires only rear plate for passenger vehicles.
Purple: State requires front and rear plate for most, but not all passenger vehicles.

First, there was a crashed school bus led by driver with drowsiness. The bus rolled off the carriageway and fall into ditch due to lack of the crash barriers. Four fresh 18 yrs adults died there. Some people angrily remarked that if there had been a crash barriers and mandatory seat belts in bus, no one would have died.

Second, last night a tragic accident occurred on the same motorway. The driver of polish truck had fell asleep and similarly rolled off the carriageway but in contrast with aforementioned case, crash barriers were present here. The truck hit the barriers and was bounced back to the motorway, smashing some vehicles and the divider barriers. The trailer flew over the divider crash barriers and hit the cars in opposite direction. Horrible accident and it is a miracle that the only passed away person was the driver of the truck.

Now there is a question, are crash barriers good or not on motorways?

Furthermore, there was a bus crash test in media, showing that two-point seat belts usually installed in buses may hurt even more, since even in crash at small speed, the upper and lower parts of the body comes apart.
The problem with seat belts on the buses is that the rider/passengers would they ACTUALLY wear em'.
In Singapore ,the LTA (Transport Authority) set a rule for all the private buses to have the belts and some of the seats on the public buses have em'
But in the 2-3 years of the rule being implemented here ,I hardly see anyone use them belts

I was at a campsite in Sweden today, and there was a Finnish guy in front of me who spoke Swedish with the attendant. Surprisingly I could understand most of it, but it helps if you know the context.

As well as Austrian, Greek, San Marinese, Slovenian coins.
I've noticed that Slovenian coins are not dominant in Slovenia. Most seen coins in Slovenia are German, Austrian and Italian. Slovenian coins must gone abroad.

That brigde is probably 60 years old and carries a railwayline into the city.

Apart from Slovak coins, I have predominantly German, French and Irish ones.

I'm now having a craving for a caipirinha.

Just thought I'd put it out there....

Some days ago I had a Slovenian coin too. They are rare here. Apart from Spanish coins, French, German and Italian ones are common in my area. And by next year Andorran coins won't be too hard to catch .

Slovakia's been in the Eurozone for 5.5 years and I've seen only one Slovak euro coin so far (and it's not far away either).

I am very happy to have no front plate rule where I live... on my European-made Mercedes there isn't even a place on the car to put it. I guess front-plate is installed with some ugly bracket My old Saab though has a nice place for it, so I put old European license plate there

I prefer no barrier, and wide, depressed grassy median. I think it is safest. But as for bus safety, stop taking bus to places, drive your car instead

I remember my visit in Slovenia in 2007. I was at the trip with classmates in Italy and we travelled through Slovenia. My desire to get Slovenian Euro coins was so strong, I stopped at the roadside rest area to purchase chewing gums. It added up to 0,60 €, but I paid by 50 € banknote just for sure. It worked out .

Btw. the code displayed on Euro banknotes says the country it was issued in too.
