Videos of car crashes on the Av. Padre Jlio Fragata in Braga, Portugal.

Some of them a pretty bad, out of the ones i've seen so far, the worse is the September 11th one.

The cars come to fast around a corner and crash in front of the camera

Here, right?

I visited Porto and Lisboa a couple ofyears ago, I was surprised by the number of bad drivers around there.
If Italy may have a problem of aggressive drivers, Portugal has a problem of drivers unaware of what they're doing, imho.

Is that just my impression?

I didn't get why he landed in Cezch rep. Maybe he doesn't like Slovakia.

Sales of new cars in Estonia in October were up 121% compared to 2009. We are talking about small numbers here (993 vs. 449) but it still is quite remarkable if you take into consideration that in EU overall, sales were down 17%.

The blurring of buildings looks absolutely ridiculous. As a counter-reaction, you can make a detailed 3D-model of it with photo-like facades and put it online

Google should make some sort of contest and send out armies of private photographers taking pictures of everything and anything on public property. The one who takes the most pictures within a year wins 1 million dollars.

The funny thing is, that the pictures of the other carriageway is a year older (April - May 2008) so the autobahn is still under construction:

A sort of 'German Angst'
I'd call it Paranoia.
