UA thread should be changed into [UA] Ukrainian highways & motorways - Українські автодороги, because Автодороги Україна means Avtodorogi Ukraina and it should be Українські - Ukrainian

I can't believe my eyes!

At this video you can see 80 years old pensioner driving his Daewoo Matis for almost 10 kilometres on motorway D2 in Bratislava in wrong direction. Irony is he entered motorway at interchange near Bratislava crematory.



Check in rather here in HD: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7YhVeI7oiY

It's miracle no accident happened.

yes, they went crazy down there at A1 south of Split with driving in wrong direction.
also, we have new toll booths Demerje at end of A1 near Zagreb which are only for card and e-payment, Lučko is only for cash. so some people go to Demerje not having ENC or card, so the return few hunderd meters in wrong direction. i knew it was gonna happen when they open Demerje

But why did they build new toll booths 3 kilometers away? Sure there are gonna be problems with that. And don't they accept all major credit cards at Demerje?

In Slovenian's tunnels everything would start to blink and tunnel will automatically be closed for traffic.

It was discussed why the traffic wasn't stopped immediately. Police catch him after 10 km drive during which he passed many cameras. IMO it was possible to stop all traffic before the tunnel and catch him there.

The Northbound Driscoll Bridge looking East towards the New Jersey Highlands and the Atlantic Ocean I'm on the Garden State Parkway Bridge, next to me is the US 9 Bridge and then NJ 35 Victory Bridge, on the Raritan River.
