A-7 is not continuous. Although the route can be driven entirely on motorway, it alternates between A-7, AP-7 and both running parallel to each other.

The longest uninterrupted stretch of A-7 runs from Estepona to Elche and is 570 kilometers long. All sections of A-7 combined are 931 kilometers long.

I think German A7 is still the longest uninterrupted motorway in Europe.

Italy would've won this 'contest' if they renumbered A3 to A1 instead of A2. That would be some 1240 kilometers from Milano to Reggio Calabria.

Speaking of motorway numbering, is there a reason why in Austria:
- A10 is re-numbered A11 at Villach
- A8 is re-numbered A9 nearby Wels
- A2 is re-numbered A23 just south of Vienna
?

Something strange must have been in the air today. I've seen severely looking accidents on places where it is impossible to crash severely and several drivers have acted conspicuously strange.

Perhaps there is nothing else to do at the Austrian ministry of transport this Summer

You say?

http://torino.repubblica.it/cronaca/...-C8-P1-S1.8-T1

making the headlines, a road rage accident near Turin where a van driver, after a spirited discussion with a motorcycle driver about traffic, found nothing better to do than crush him and his gf against a guardrail. She died, the bf is in critical conditions.

Hope he is eventually satisfied of what he did.

The guy appeared to have been very drunk when he committed that crime. It did something similar 7 years ago, when he attacked two policemen after having provoked an accident due to his drunkeness.

Two girls streaming live on Facebook from their VW Beetle, boasting over speeding, breaking the rules, etc etc...

It was not their first video, but it was the last one for one of them. The phone kept filming throughout the accident.

This should be a compulsory video for anyone that is getting the driving license I guess.

Guys, will you help me?

I have accidentally put too much wax on my car. First it looked perfect, but now it get like stained after some rain. It is not easy to get rid of it. Only after I rub it off hard would it get clean. But only until the next rain.
