Kilometers are also avalaible. Click on the "mi" and then it will show stats in kilometers.
BTW, I'm winning in Spain: I have clinched almost 3200 kilometers (2000 miles) more than the person that comes second. (Obviously, it's my country).
But I like Oscar Voss' stats. He knows almost every inch of Interstates... and he had all Interstates clinched back in 2009!

I'm seeking panda80's, and... It's C32Mat, all in one. But you have passed through Sant Vicenç de Montalt... Finally I went there on the first Friday of current year, but no new clinched sections of C-32 because I reached that town... by commuter train.

Chris, as expected, is impressive in The Netherlands, almost 100% However there is a motorway there where I've been and he wasn't (A256, near Goes)

How many examples of motorways and railways running parallel(rails are side by side or in the middle) to each other you can you give? I know there are in Belguim. Which is the most "hilly/mountainous" example you can give where this solution was chosen?

Guys, just wondering: Is there any car rental company in the US that doesn't apply the 'being too young to be a responsible driver fee' to people aged 24?

When I was in the US (1,5 years ago) I remember that I studied a little bit the car rentals offers and as far as I can remember almost all of them don't rent cars to drivers under 21, drivers with licence for less than a year, and for those ones under 24 they charge an extra fee. Good luck in finding one that dosen't have this restrictions

how far and how close? railway usually requires much larger diameters of curves and much smaller ascents (for instance 2,5 or 2,8% are montainious extremes for railway, when motorway goes up to 5-6%).

in Italy near Roma fast railway is always somewhere near A1, you can see it almost all the time.

In Romania we have Bucharest - Constanta railway that goes parallel to the A2 motorway for most of length, although they are separated by few hundred meters. The point where they go side-by-side is between Fetesti and Cernavoda. At the Danube bridge in Cernavoda the railway goes in the middle of the motorway. Here you have 2 pictures of Cernavoda Danube bridge:

In the Netherlands, the Betuwe Freight Route runs parallel (within visible range) to the A15 motorway for 140 kilometers.

Ah, the generation that votes left when they are studying but shift to right-wing parties once they get a reasonable income

It's not always like that. I was very left-wing when I was a student, and now that I get a reasonable income I can't find a sufficiently left-wing party to vote.

what is with old railway bridges? are they abandoned or still in use? as far as i see, this one near Feteşti is in use, but in Çernavoda i'm not sure. what is its future?

The new Danube bridges were opened in 1987 and are still in use. The old ones (from 1895) were 'retired' after the opening of the new ones.
