Ah ok. I'm on my mobile at the moment, so I don't really click on links.

@Chriszwolle

What did I just see

(signature under the picture)

btw, the article is about a flawed toll system on Polish motorways which creates havoc and massive jams at toll booths.

As I wrote on the Dutch Highawys thread, car sales here are projected to be only 369.000 this years, keeping a long decline started in 1999. I wonder if the same phenomenon is happening on Eastern European countries, which got richer on average over last 15 years (recent crisis notwithstanding). If fewer new cars are sold in countries like Netherlands, France and Italy, that must reduce even the supply of second-hand cars to Poland, Romania, Hungary...

An unusual video: traffic management at the end of the Burning Man festival in US. It is held in a desert flat in Nevada, lasts one week, and involves ushering out more than 50.000 people through a small local 2-lane road 70 miles north of I-80.

I really hate people chatting on pedestrian crossings. Today I stopped four times to let people cross the road. They looked at me with puzzle faces and carry on chatting.

That's nothing. A few days ago I saw a woman chatting on phone in the middle of a pedestrian crossing. She had green light, but she just stopped in the middle and started talking.

What's the best way to go from Munich Airport to Florence on the last Saturday of September?
I would have to drive off around 15:00 from the airport, so I would like to get to Florence before midnight...

Is this the way to bypass the A12 in Austria if driving from Garmisch?

Yeah that is the way. But expect delays at Garmisch, they are doing roadworks there. A12 route is not much better at the moment. From Munich there are works in progress on A8, A93 and four different sets on the A12.

You should use in Germany:A8,A93
in Austria :A12,A13
in Italy :A22 and A1

Yeah, that would be the easy way, but traffic on German A8 can be horrible...

You don't need the Austrian vignette for that route.

It is the coldest 19 August in 90 years in the Netherlands. The maximum temperature reached 15.9 °C today.
