No I never put the name of the song in my description. I guess they have scan programs that can detect sound patterns or something.

Well, this is an LP rip of the song, which is a different mix to the CD. I wonder if it's too much to hope for that it won't recognise it on that basis.

yes, i was driving parallely with him. i did about 110, he about 70 so it had not lasted for a long time. i think that i saw him doing U turn in my mirrors, but i'm not sure. all i could do was to call 112 and say where he was. fortunately, the traffic was not large, it was after midnight.

I also never saw something like that. You have to be extremely blind in the Netherlands to get on the freeway in the wrong direction, road layout doesn't encourage it, there are very noticeable traffic signs and the signage is usually clear enough.

I've never seen it as well. I've seen a video on Youtube of a ghost-rider on the Dutch A58 though.

usually ghost riders say they have mistakenly entered wrong direction. i cannot believe it. if you would enter motorway into wrong direction somehow, the latest after entering ramps you would notice what you've done. driving after that is made on purpose and it is pure idiotism.a lthough allready enetring wrong direction is idiotism because signs for forbidden direction are clear, large and visible. we don't have many "ga terug" signs (we use those fluoroscent with high-five like austrian) but anyway to pass at least 2 large forbidden direction signs at clear road is insanity.
