I'm not sure if I've asked this question over here already but it doesn't hurt to ask again:

Are pedestrian reflectors commonly used or even compulsory in your country?

In Estonia, the current rules require a pedestrian to wear one when it's dark and the street/rural road isn't lit but from 2011 you have to wear it at all times when it's dark. A pedestrian reflector can increase the distance from which he/she is visible to the driver 4-5 times.

For those that don't know what it is, here's a pic:

You have to wear it in Slovakia just when you walk on a hard shoulder (on a road between 2 villages for example). But I don`t think that somebody mind.

You have.

The same is in Latvia. People here get even fined for not having them.

This morning I spotted a bad accident, cyclist under a truck at a roundabout... sad result

We have a serious problem of road safety here, people don't care about what's around their vehicle, and many drivers can't actually figure out the complex dynamics of driving.


Let's talk about something else. We're looking for a new small car! What do you think about Citroen C3, Mazda 2, Opel/Vauxhall Agila and Corsa?

I love the Mazda, great driving feeling and a very good project overall.

Due to Photobucket f*cking up, most images won't be visibile in my old posts. If you need anything specific, please write me.

French cars aren't known for their reliability. They often have expensive electronic problems. But they are comfortable. The Dutch consumers rights association had a member panel of 3.000 people who did a questionnaire about the reliability of their cars. Out of the flop 5, 4 were French makes (Renault 2x, Citroën, Peugeot) and one Chevrolet.

I have a Renault and a Chevrolet so according with that study I should have spent half of my life in a car service.

Seriously speaking, my 1.5 diesel Clio didn't have any problems at all. It's 6 year old and has 85k km and still goes nice and smooth.

PS: It even starts without problems at -19 degress C although it's diesel. I tested this 3 years in a row in Slovakia (third car from the right).

In my opinion it is better than Google (images are of higher quality) but so far it only covers parts of eastern and central Europe.
