True. An because of its size, it may enter a car from an unexpected direction:



The moose usually loses the game against a train



while the train typically suffers from temporary re-coloring only



Sometimes, however, the train is damaged, too, and cannot continue.

Train often can't continue due to hygienic reasons.

I've just opened this thread in the Domus Ludicrae Maximae:

Immigration and custom laws in Europe

Please post here not road-related discussions.

Hello everyone, I believe I'm right in thinking that some of you, like Chris, take a tent on long car trips. How much roughly does it cost a night to stay in a campsite? I suppose it varies from country to country.

I usually pay € 9 - 12 per night on a campsite. It usually includes wifi and showers. If you use electricity, expect to pay about € 3 more. I don't need electricity hookup in my tent, I recharge my stuff in the car (basically just a phone and laptop).

Scandinavia is a little more expensive, though I only paid over € 20 per night in Switzerland.

Travel mapping

A little update about the "travel mapping" project which replaces the old clinched highway project.

There's a little navigation now but the user selection is still inoperable. Please refer to my signature for figuring out the user map links (old links should be redirected though).

You can camp for free in nature in Scandinavia though.

Thanks a lot, I'm pleasantly surprised.

Is there a map of highways in Europe (and maybe other places) by their max speeds?

Thanks, but I meant a little more detailed, like a normal map of highways, with each of them colored, like this, although this is for trains. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:High_Speed_Railroad_Map_of_Europe_2015.svg

Could this be the future of highway paving?

That's illegal in southern Europe, instead.

I am rather sure that the construction will not work in the areas where the ground freezes in the winter. In such conditions, the top layer must be an isolating one preventing the water from entering the lower layers.

Elsewhere, the coming popularity depends on the cost to build, an the resistance to wearing.
