No I have not. But on the north parts it's been always very very relaxed. As you've said: slower drivers moving over shoulders, etc.

I've just come back from tiny Slovakia trip and the journey was much more stressful. I can't explain why.

Because people like myself get hards-ons with these new juicy expressways you have been building. Especially the one from Nitra to Zvolen...

Speaking of hard-ons
It might sounds unbelievable, but past three weeks, there was a bunch of drivers speeding over 200 kph It was covered by media.

This one was the most noticeable:

Driver of Ferrari exceeded the speed limit over 128 kph: his granma gets angry (you know - tabloid)
Article in Slovak

Quote:
A police cop from Banska Bystrica annouced that there was a Ferrari on R1 expresway driving significantly fast towards Nitra on Wednesday about 6 PM. Another cop measured and pulled over a car speeding at 258 kph few minutes later. Driver's (29 yo) driver licence were immediately confiscated and further drive was forbidden.
Some photos:


My brief remark: some curves are difficult to pass even at 130 kph there.

With no GPS installed, you may get lost in the Industrial Zone of Thessaloniki. It's vast.

Indeed. Lot of turnoffs, traffic signs, turning lanes, curves. Very hard to follow.

situation from yesterday: i was travelling back from the seaside when at last 40 km of 600 km long journey i spotted an idiot on some super-cool sport bike (very likely professionaly equiped) cycling at motorway. i am cycling at that area often and it is really not a problem to take state road instead on that strech. i did stupid thing passing as mush as possible close to him at speed of cca 120 km/h to make him think a bit. but now interesting part: i stopped at nearby rest area, only polce car was parked there. i was waiting a bit to see what would happen when policeman spot an idiot on the bike, but nothing happened. then i watched little bit closer - policeman was sleeping in the car

What motorway was it? Did he need to pass through a toll barrier to exit?

I changed my Volkswagen 1.6 TDI L4, Common Rail, Manual 5-Speed, 105hp to an Ford PSA-Peugeot-Citroën 3.0 HDI V6, Twin Turbo, Automatic Transmission (Torque Converter, USA style) and Common Rail, 271hp for this days of vacation and road trips.

Also I changed from 4,9l/100km to 10,8l/100km, but, the V6 is worth.



Me, right now.

Plus, my favorite song for this holidays…



Note: For USA users, TDI and HDI are diesel engines, you know, that thing that is not gasoline

What do you think about self service cash desks at Tesco? Shouldn't customers who use it deserve at least one plastic bag for free?
