We're so small-minded here...
AFAIK there is even a plane connection between Groningen and Maastricht (transavia)

Groningen is seen as far in my city (Zwolle, 100km away). Maastricht is seen as exotic here. (220km). Nah, I don't think it's very far, if I say I'm gonna drive a short trip of 400 kilometers people think I'm crazy because for a Dutchmen, those are distances they only drive on vacation.

Counting traffic jams should in the Netherlands be officially confirmed as a hobby or maybe a regular profession?

Just copy paste it in Google translate and translate it (it's Japanese)

You're right, it's 'congestion'; I didn't think it would translate it (properly), cause I don't have the Japanese letters supported.
