In Denmark almost every entrance ramp is constructed like the middle lane in this youtube. I HATE this. Theoretically it is supposed to enhance the merging efficiency and low speed limits improves the safety, but in result when you drive along the motorway you must check every entrance for oncoming vehicles. And if you aren't used to this kind of geometry, it becomes very stressful.

Yes, Denmark is quite out of par with the rest of Europe with their entrances and exits. It works as long as traffic volumes are low enough. I've seen queues on the shoulders near Odense because there wasn't a deceleration lane (only an off-ramp).

Yeah it's quite common in Portugal, although less now than it used to be as roads are getting much better. Theres a junction in Figueira da Foz (A14XEN109) which has built in the 80's and it has to deacelataiton/acelaration lanes at all. Basicly to turn onto one of the motorway/motorwayish roads you have to stop like at a T junction.

It is OK to me, but it needs a good driver. Old papas and women should rather use right lane. Also, if there is too dense traffic, use right lane, no different than elsewhere.

I always had you down as an Audi driver.
Well, I should not judge a book by its cover.

Why an Audi?

Actually, I bought this car for economic reasons.

You gotta know diesel cars are quite expensive in the Netherlands, and commercial vans are exempted from the car tax, which is 42% of the catalogue price. Hence, this car is 42% cheaper than regular diesel cars, which comes down to several thousand euros.

Second, the monthly road tax is lower, about 50%. If this van was a regular car, I would've spend about € 1150 per year in road tax, now this is "only" € 645.

Third, insurance for commercial vans is significantly cheaper. I pay about € 50 all risk, while my previous '95 Peugeot 306 was € 40 liability only.

So, it's all about the math.

Yeah, it's called "Motorrijtuigenbelasting (MRB)". Motor vehicles tax. It depends on the fuel type, weight and the province you're living in. You can pay it per month, per Q or per year. I think most people pay it per month.

For instance, if you have a gasoline vehicle of 1300 kg and you're living in Utrecht province, this will cost you € 580 per year. If it was a 1300 kg diesel car, it would've cost you € 1156 per year and LPG-G3 € 832.
However, if you have a commercial van (not registered to a company) with diesel, it will cost you € 924. However, if it was 1000 kg, it would've cost you € 652 (my case).

For instance, if you have a Opel Zafira of 1600 kg on diesel in North Holland, your yearly tax is € 1508.
