All of this can be said about Estonia as well. AFAIK Google even shares some of the traffic density data they gather with Estonian Road Administration. I find it interesting that Waze is not used as much elsewhere.

Both Ontario and Quebec ministries of transport use the Google traffic data on their official websites, and overlay it with their own alerts (eg construction zone)

eg http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/tra...79.459648&z=10
and http://www.quebec511.info/fr/Carte/Default.aspx

I don't think many people use them though

I see a relatively high number of Russian cars in northern Italy, but mostly during summer. Most are from Moscow, but I've seen some form more distant, like Tatarstan, Ekaterinburg, Celjabinsk,... Considering all vehicles, the most distant was a truck from Novosibirsk on A4 Venice-Trieste, that's probably the most distant licence plate I spotted (not counting USA, Canada and Japan, that are more distant but they didn't came there overland).
And I spottes a car from Transnistria on a rest area of A1 Vienna-Salzburg.

I once read about someone that rode his motorbike all the way to Russian far East, and then took a couple ferries to South Korea and Japan, so the Japanese car could have gone overland almost all the way.

And how in Earth the Transnistria car did reach Austria? I thought they would be forced to switch to 'valid' Moldovan plates.

It is still inside Europe.
That is just 800 km more (a day of driving) than I've been this year (Nizhny Novgorod). We though to go at to Kazan too, but it would add 2 days of driving with additional hotel cost. Russia is REALLY BIG.

When we were in Nizhny Novgorod (which is at the same longitude as Badghad, Iraq) we were 3500 km from Ljubljana (because we made return over Latvia). From Russian point of view, this is still just at the beginning of Russia.
From there to Magadan, which is the furthest point you can get over road in Russia, there is another 10,000 km that is at least 2 weeks of driving and probably some car service.
@Suburbanist: as I know, main road to Vladivostok is now fully paved and generally in good condition. There are road videos of the whole trip on Youtube.
My party had an idea to go to Vladivostok and return over China and Kazakhstan (about one month trip). However driving with your own car through China is still not allowed.

I think EU should retaliate against China w.r.t these driving rules, and also other countries that do not allow foreign cars or foreign-licensed drivers to drive cars within their territory. So if people cannot take their cars, or their driver's licenses, to temporarily drive cars in other country, drivers from such country should face the same restrictions in Europe.
