We aren't drunk during the day, but when going out in the evening, usually yes.

Guys, are there any such overpasses/underpasses/roads in your countries? It's always funny to be sandwiched between lanes like that, and I feel like driving on wrong side, lol.

It's a standard issue on every left turn intersection, but in many cases the lanes are not paited.

Weird, haven't seen that yet. At first I thought it was a Diverging diamond interchange but all the lanes are on the "wrong side" on that type of interchange.

Nah, it's always like that when cars are turning on both left turns so they don't block each other. You really haven't seen that before?

Yeah, where the old road for Villach (until last year) exits from the ring. I didn't think it was a big deal, cause I'm used to it, it's existed since I was born. Though I always thought it was kind of cool. AFAIK it's the only such in Slovenia.

this is actually kind of this intersection, here both left turns go in the same time, too. but it has more interesting shape with deep left lanes

^ Interesting, but that's really just driving through the intersection longer, simply b/c it's bigger. In fact every intersection is like that, just that it's usually smaller.

actually, diameter is about the same size at both of them. but in Ljubljana it has rectangular shape so that's why it cannot have 2 quater-circle archs as in Zagreb, where shape is square. and it is really weird placment for left-turns indeed, i haven't seen it before.
actually, that intersetion in Ljubljana reminds me on this (unfortunately, it is not photographed for google maps yet)

So they've reorganized the American intersection? Anyway, I didn't think of mentioning it before, cause it's so old, but now I see it's quite unique. I'm sure you've already driven through it.

yep. weird, but true. i have allways entered Austria via Šentilj. and i have never been to Germany, maybe that's the main reason (i know, one of 0,000001% people from ex-yu who has never been there)

I'd like to ask Radi if he can give us experts opinion on quality and shininess of crash barriers on Rijeka bypass. Did we finally managed to make them "Struma class"?
