I saw a situation today near my work where 3 cars and a bicycle where all waiting to yield (all from other directions) . They were all waiting for the other one. In the end the girl on the bicycle was the first to cross while laughing about the situation

This happened in Bratislava 2 years ago. It was during the first day since the local government decided to turn the signals on the intersection off :-)

I live near this chaotic intersection. There's often someone blocking my way. (PS: my kindergarten on the left )

Two equivalent roads => priority to the right But I believe, lot of drivers don't know that.

Just wanted to share this with you guys. Street huskers from all over the world making this wonderful song. Huskers connected this song in Santa Monica, New Orleans, Amsterdam, Livorno, Toulouse, Barcelona, Moscow, South Africa, New Mexico and even the Congo...

This is really awesome!

Meaning the banner up top? I guess I'll see it at 6 a.m. your time. (It changes at midnight my time for me - I've still got Tyumen.)

Um, duly noted?

I just didn't know what Verso was talking about until I guessed that the banner changes for each of us according to the date where we are (or wherever our computer thinks it is).

Why it's time for the Americans to go Dutch and support the Netherlands in World Cup football according to the Wall Street Journal...

Feh, for a few days we were all supposed to hate Belgium, while simultaneously not taking it seriously. There was amused (and amusing) coverage of this in De Standaard.

I'm just looking forward to Belgium getting to play either the Netherlands or France. Of course, France has to survive les Boches first.

Just read it. Cute. By the way, you know what "go Dutch" means?

How up-to-date are Google Maps cartographic base in your country? Here in the Netherlands, I realize they now update it very quickly. In my city, even local road projects that close a street for 2 weeks are now updated on Google Maps, showing them as closed and not routing driving directions through them.

A pity Via Michelin appears to have just abandoned its drawn maps, which were the best online maps.

Google Maps has been degraded significantly in Europe. Whereas a freeway in the U.S. is shown as such, regardless of Interstate, U.S. or State Highway designation, European freeways are only shown as such with A-status or equivalent. This means many (thousands of kilometers) of motorway-standard roads are shown just like any other secondary road.
