I saw a truck from Cyprus this morning! This is the first time I saw a Cypriotian license plate.

Seriously? I've seen plenty of them here, although I really don't know why!

Truck on ship? It might be that they don't trust the companies that have to bring the goods from the harbour inlands (or it is just too expensive)

During the afternoon peak hour, the police conducted a speed check on the A28 freeway near Zwolle. Result: 18 kilometers of traffic jam

In a jam? 10 km/h or sth. I believe the speed limit on the A28 is 100 km/h when it goes through Zwolle.

And when it's not so bad? 'Cause I'm curious if everyone is doing 120, becouse whenever I come across a Dutch car on a motorway, even in Italy(), it's always at 120 km/h

When there's no congestion, most people drive between 110 and 130 but often slow people trying to overtake a line of trucks with 3 km/h speed difference causing long queues behind it.

@PLH: In Germany, lots of Dutch test the speed limit of their cars, when there is not so much traffic. In lots of urban areas the limit is 100 km/h. Because there is much traffic, you often don't get the change to drive 120 km/h continuously.

And is there a certain group going much faster? For example sales representatives - here in Poland it's always >150 km/h

Or maybe I will widen my question: is this common also in other countries?

They don't really get the chance, that's the problem. At least not in the region I live in My mom always calls the Audi's in Bavaria that drive >150 km/h "glowing nails" (gloeiende spijkertjes) when their braking lights go on to brake for a overtaking lorry.

150 km/h is not really possible to drive in the Netherlands. Maybe at night, but not during the day, or only for short distances or near border regions where traffic is less dense.
