Now that the 'Timelapse road videos' has been closed, I realized I've managed to do an 'In before lock' thing more than a year ago . Normally I don't manage to do that, but I've done it a few times.

I've been there skiing 3 winters. The slope nearby that hotel is just too easy, even for beginners. I also ate once in the restaurant of that hotel (really nice hotel if I remember well).

i dreamt of this thread tonight. i had about 20 unread pages, and on the first unread page bogdymol mentioned me with my surname, and Verso followed naming me with my name. and then on the following pages each while somebody would name me with my name or surname. i was not pissed off, but confused and quit reading after 4-5 pages.

I was part of that dream? Don't worry, I wouldn't never refer you with your real name even if I knew it.

In another forum I'm in someone created a pretty hilarious thread where plural rules are applied to every word. Some examples:
One house, two hice (due to mouse, mice).
One Toys-Я-Us, two Toys-Я-I (Now that is a paradox).
One 3dus, two 3di (So two 3 digit US routes become a 3 digit Interstate?).

And we even gone the way slavic languages, with things like those:
One taxi, two taxis, three taxes.
One explosion, two explosia, three explosiæ.

And we've done it the other way round. Like I did with one of my metro systems, compare this with this (Search for line 11), where I changed Alfamen (ugliest town ever) to Alfaman .

Be carreful with the all new french "roadwork radars"

https://www.facebook.com/terence31/v...6830740599102/

They are hidden, not indicated and with a very very high capacity (up to 7500 vehicules per hour), only in this short video, it has flashed around 50 vehicules...

It's hard to believe that this kind of hidden installation will have any effect on road safety, it is even worse because cars are braking in front of it (and for example on the video we can see a car almost been hit by the truck behind it...), it's such an excellent way to make easy and fast cash for the state...

Indeed, if they really wanted to increase safety they would implement average speed control and put up huge signs to let the drivers know.

On the other hand, French workzone speed limits are not that low. For example this bridge renovation on A49 near Romans-sur-Isère has a speed limit of 90 km/h. In the Netherlands such a speed limit is only allowed on motorways if there is a solid barrier between driving directions. Not to mention all the 60 km/h Baustellen in Germany.

What's more annoying about France is that they immediately slap a € 45 minimum fine for 1 km/h over the speed limit on you.

Well, hopefully they didn't flash me.
I survived Palermo, but I have to say it wasn't really bad, nothing really impressive besides my other experiences in Italy

You've just picked the wrong example because 90km/h is the maximum speed for this kind of 2 ways roads in France, so this roadsign is at best "useless".

No, in most of the roadworks in France, the limitations are low and not really justified like for example in the video it has been limitated to 70km/h on a 3 ways motorway and without any work and workers on place (this is why almost no one respect this very low limitation for this type of road...).

And this is not the only one, by driving a lot in France this summer, this is something very usual...

But yes, Germany don't makes better, even if the low limitations on motorways works are more justified (most of the time the space for vehicules is small)... and yes I hate Germany for that, due to the lack of works on their motorways in the past, there is such roadworks everywhere and sometimes it is very very dangerous (I had a big fear one time, when the traffic goes from 130km/h to complete stop without any information or limitation before, this was due to a damn roadwork... )

i think that generally speed limits in working zones are too low. here in HR you will hardly find more than 60 too (sometimes it happens 80, but very rare). there are even 40 km/h zones if construction site is short (of course, nobody drive 40 there, it is just insane)

In the Netherlands, motorway work zones usually have a 90 km/h speed limit. 70 km/h is only used for short-term night works or when there are only cones separating traffic from workers. The A12 widening east of Arnhem had mostly a 100 km/h speed limit, despite the near-complete reconstruction of the motorway.

Generally speaking, the Dutch Rijkswaterstaat does a very good job eliminating impact of road works on traffic. Most regular maintenance (paving) works are done during the night or weekends, and long-term work zones are few in number and have little impact on traffic. Under 5% of traffic congestion in the Netherlands is caused by road works.
