If you flash or honk you get either ignored or they slam the brakes in front of you, but they never ever ever ever actually get out of the way. You end up having no choice but passing on the right (if space is available) which usually it isn't since people also have a habit of driving side by side in little cluster-fukks. I hate driving on American highways.

I usually avoid them unless I have no other option, and this is the odd irony of America. We may have the most highways in the world, but for short distances, if you want to get somewhere peacefully and on time you are better off avoiding the freeways. Surface streets... with stop lights and everything, are many times quicker.

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.
I know this page, it's also in Slovakia.

When I was a bairn in the late 60's we had to wear reflective armbands during winter when going to/from school. They looked something like the following but with a lighter reflective strip in the middle.

Hofburg is from Nova Gorica. It's not so bad, you can gamble yourself out till you're bankrupt.

The same with me. I just had a jumper with reflective stripes on it when I was little.

I know he is from New Mountain (Nova Gorica ) but Ljubljana is your capital and really nice city. Anyway, I have never heard about Nova Gorica.

On Sunday, a Bentley from Belarussia was stopped on the double carriageway section of Tallinn-Pärnu highway(E67) while doing 241 km/h in a 90km/h zone . The ironic thing is that the fine he will probably get doesn't exceed € 800.

Yeah, I used to wear it but it was a proper jumper for little kids which you can buy in a shop not a reflective something.

Yeah,driver really claimed that! Btw,there's an option that his car will be impounded for one year. And one thing that made me wonder - Latvia is between Estonia & Belarus...did he raced through there with same speed? How did he manage to avoid police patrols in Latvia while keeping a steady 200km/h speed?

I'm going to drive to New York City in less than two weeks, again.

Any suggestions/requests for stuff I can film with my new camera? I won't be able to fit the entire 10-hour drive on my memory card, unfortunately (neither will my power last, though recharging is an option, but not a convenient one).
