Apart from that Belgium is probably most known here for smurfs, eurocrats, moules-frites and political infighting between flemings and walloons
Ha'way man. You've missed out the most famous Belgian of all time - Tin Tin.

That's basically it. You get a 'Producer', officially called HO/RT1 (Home Office Road Traffic Form 1). You then have 7 days to 'produce' your documents (driving licence, MOT & insurance) at a police station nominated by yourself.

I don't get it. What happens if you do not? They don't have your name, your street address, they can't do anything to track you.

They have your car registration though which the police can trace you with. If you don't have the relevant documents you will be prosecuted.

PS The police run a check on your car registration prior to issuing a producer so they'll know if you're lieing about your personal details.

But the car could be registered to my grandma, or lended by a friend...

I don't know, it seems a method too complex and prone to errors...

So conclusion: Radi is the next pope? Apparently, he practices a lot.

When I first saw this thread I thought it was about rest areas alongside highways.

Speaking of that, the many here in the US can get sort of creepy at night (depending on your area). I remember when driving through Arkansas some time ago there were police and paramedics at one going inside the female bathroom. W/ the yellow tape over the door. Looked like a murder had happened.

I remember such a story from 1967; the James Bond producers were shooting their newest film in Japan, and had booked an airline back to the United Kingdom, but decided to stay a little longer to watch a ninja performance they needed for the film. That aircraft crashed 20 minutes after takeoff, killing all aboard. Man, that's luck.

I remember something like that with Italia footballer Christian Panucci, coming back to Italy after Atlanta Olympic Games in '96... he injured himself and decided to come back home... he booked a seat on TWA 800 but changed idea later because he didn't want to stop in Paris and booked a seat on another plane... and the TWA 800 exploded over the Atlantic Ocean, killing 250...

6 years ago my mother found really cheap last minute to Maldives and nearly booked it but she had decided to stay for a Christmas at home.

Thanks God..
