Can anyone trace a longer route in Google Maps than this one without using any 'via' destinations?
This one would be quite a roadtrip...

It works for China (as well as for Thailand, Vietnam or large chunk of Africa), but unfortunately you cannot trace a route across Chinese border (so it's very realistic then )

Being annoyed enough with the fact that the car is only place where I can listen to the radio, and recently discovering that some stations are playing very decent music in the evening I've just bought this beauty
It's older than me and it looks absolutely gorgeous. I will have the package with it next week, I'll see if it is worth 10€ I've paid for it

Damn I got a speeding ticket, the first one in over two years. I drove 105 km/h, where 100 was allowed (A28 motorway), 4 weeks ago. That'll be € 21 + € 6 administrative cost.

Did you ask to see a valid calibration certificate for the radar?

It seems to me that the police were a bit naughty giving you a fine when the offence is well within the error of your and their equipment (speedometer and radar, respectively). The compound error from the two is bound to be greater than 5 km/h. Typically you would expect a +10% trigger-point with respect to the posted speed limit since the accuracy of the measurement can be easily challenged in a court of law.

By sum-of-squares rule, and assuming equal contribution to the total error, both the speedo and the radar would have to be accurate to ±3.5 km/h. That is quite a challenge at ~100 km/h.

I'd go and complain, if I were you.

^ Exactly. Since the radars do have a margin of error, the police here won't give you a speed ticket unless you're driving at least 10 km/h over the legal speed limit. Meaning that if, for example, the speed limit is 100 km/h, you won't get a speed ticket if you drive with 109 km/h.

The radar got me at 109 km/h. They subtract a 3% margin at speeds over 100 km/h. and 3km/h at speeds below 100 km/h.

There is only one place they are able to set up a speed camera team on that stretch of motorway, and that's in the last few 100 m of the 100 km/h zone. But that's the Dutch police, they want easy money.

I was being sarcastic, but that's okay I hope that eventually their economy's are up for it. Greece was a great disappointment.

3%? here you have tolerance of 10% up to 100 km/h, or 10 km/h over 100 km/h. but you cannot get that low ticket for speedeing. i think the smallest fine is about 150€.

Luckily it's not that much, still a bummer.

In Romania the fine is about 30 € if you drive 10-20 km/h over the legal speed limit. However you can pay only half if you're paying it within 48 hours.

Not too often we have an opportunity to see pictures showing African roads. So now we have. Really beautiful photos made by Zaika. Here is the link:

Yeah, I realized it after sending it... Never mind, the statement about CZ and PL is somewhat worthwhile, so I kept it... Greece is disappointment for many of us, but it is very interesting to see, how other countries are able to enforce some changes in greek very generous social system... Somehow it helps to abolish some rigid provisions in the system, that any totally independent (in international sense) greek government would not be willing to do...

I am now in the land of perfect roads (at least according to this thread)!

From what I've seen in the past few days, I can't argue, although I didn't drive
