I have no idea, I don't hear it in the car, but the camera picks it up.

Nice drive. I love driving in the snow. A great way of testing ABS or just playing around

The only think i understood was something with snowstorm.
I think it's so much easier to read dutch than hearing it. It's a funny mix of English, German, French and Danish

It's the same the other way round, I can understand written Danish, but I don't understand it when people speak it.

Nah, I drove about 30 km/h on the straight sections, and 10 - 15 km/h in that turn, because it's almost a 90 degrees turn.

You can always argue that if you can't make a turn, you've been doing it too fast. In Sweden, even in dry conditions, if a person drives off the road in a turn he will be fined for speeding (not going at a speed adapted to the situation) if there are no extraordinary circumstances, say unexpected slipperiness. But the ground was covered with snow here and you know that your driving with summer tyres, so there would be no extraordinary circumstances. Luckily, you and your car are ok.

No, I don't have winter tires. Last year had 3 days with conditions we have for a month now. Plus, I don't need to drive much in the winter for work, plus I can walk to work if it's not too cold or rainy (I usually walk to work, it's about 2 km).

I'm not sure where to post this question.
Who is changing the names of the topics here?
The bulgarian topic is [BG] Bulgarian highways/motorways - Автомагистрала and there is a mistake, instead of АвтомагистралА (singular) it should be АвтомагистралИ (plural).

Changed.

I want to prevent long thread names. I consider changing the Polish name in the thread title as well, just "Polish roads" in Polish, so Polskie drogi, or something more correct.

Thanks Chris. I'm not sure about Polskie drogi. There are already pictures and info about normal roads (not highways or motorways) in the thread and it's not the point of it. with that name people may start writing more and more about DK roads.
