I managed to run the 1996 game Red Alert on my Windows 7 PC. Who remembers that game? It was fun, building huge armies and crush the enemy.

CB radio - it was a big deal in the 1970's, but nowadays only truckers use it for communications. However, I have noticed many Polish cars with huge antennae, I assume for CB radio. CB revival?

Well, CB radios are quite widespread here among certain kind of drivers. They say that they use it to exchange road and traffic info, but I think you can guess what it's really used for

Well, EA is an US company. US roads generally have much wider lanes than Euro roads.

No they don't. European motorway lanes are generally 3.75 m wide, U.S. Interstate lanes are 12 feet or 3.66 m. The difference is a relatively small margin, but European lanes are wider.

We have also one motorway (D1,BA-TT) with 3.33 m wide lanes but it will be rebuild in 3 years. Ussualy we have 3.75 but there are some sections with 3.50 for example new sections of expressway R1. So yeah, mostly we build 3.75 wide lanes.

Btw, in Hungary they have 4 m long wide shoulders!

In Romania the motorway standard is the same. 2 x 3.75 m (2 lanes) + 4 m (shoulder)

A wide shoulder is necessary to facilitate a 4-0 setup during road works. Any busy 2x2 motorway should have wide shoulders, so you can efficiently carry out road works with a full carriageway closure, while not significantly decreasing capacity. Who hasn't been in a 1 hour traffic jam because the motorway narrowed from 2 to 1 lane during roadworks? You can avoid that by investing in a slightly wider shoulder.

Yeah, of course it is better. In Hungary they can even have a 5 m wide hard shoulders cos there are no moutains so it really does not matter. You should do the same in the NL.
