To piss off Russia. Montenegro is traditionally linked with Russia.

It was a rhetorical question But it must have some rationale, so I am curios what have they made up.

It is except of about 50% of the Autobahn network with an advisory speed limit of 130km/h only. Why? Because there's a strong car driver / automotive industry lobby.

As long as people are educated to drive on motorways, I don't see any problem...

Just to say, I have less problems/dangerous situations by going at 160-170km/h on autobahn than at 120-130km/h in other countries such as Hungary for example (with the same traffic)... because on autobahn people are carefull and for example they are watching if a car is coming before they do an overtaking so they won't go in front of you and create a dangerous situation, this happens too often in eastern Europe and some other countries...

I used to think that in some countries (also in France) people maybe don't care about how they are driving on motorway or maybe got their driving licence without knowing how to drive on a motorway...

In Romania it is forbidden for those who take driving lessons (together with an instructor) to drive on a motorway. So if you cannot learn how to drive there, how can you know all the rules (mostly "unofficial" rules)?

I don't agree......

I know a guy who drove 200 on German and Romanian Autobahn yesterday. The speed was only legal in one country but... There were less traffic on the Romanian Autobahn compared to the German Autobahn and I'm quite sure that the ride in Romania was much safer!

Of course, the right lane of the 2x2 German A3 Nuremberg-Würzburg was full of (east European) trucks and it was hard to drive fast. This way you can have some "unexpected" situations!

I didn't knew that, this is very stupid, how people are suposed to drive on motorway if nobody teach them with practice... (If it's in a city where there is not highways, this is normal... but to forbid it, I don't understand... ).

I think driving on motorway is the easiest thing from all driving issues. Much worse is driving in a crowded cities in dark, fog, side-wind with heavy rain.

It depends. For now, there is few traffic on the romanian A1 because as it is not yet completed, the highway is not really interesting for trucks, they are still going mostly trough the dangerous DN7 instead of following the highway that stops in Timisoara.... and also the situation about the border crossing on the highway is terrible too as there was hours of waiting this week and last week (because of the reinforced controls and the terrible organisation of romanians customs...). I crossed the border on 1st december and saved 1 or 2 hours of waiting by going trough the old road and the old border crossing...

Also yes, I don't know all the autobahns and my examples are maybe more limited than yours, but that's what I thought...


200km/h, seriously? That is really a poor guy!!! I'm sorry to tell that, but I find that this kind of guys are kind of criminals and it should be okay if it was only their life that is in danger, but they are also risking the life of others by driving like that...

I still hope that one day, romanian police will take their responsability and act seriously to stop those criminals so one day romanians road will to being covered with the blood of the too many peoples that are dying on it everyday...

And???

You can choose to avoid driving in those conditions. When there is heavy rain or a storm, I stop my car for few minutes, it's the safest thing to do...

But avoiding motorways is very hard right now, we hopefully have motorways through all Europe. But you're right, driving on motorways is not that hard, but there is some mechanisms like watching carefuly of a car is coming, etc... that you have to learn, and the best way to learn it is to practice it!!

Not if you have to be somewhere on time.
