No. This has been discussed on other threads in the last few days. These laws are at the state, rather than federal (national) level, but at least in some states, you are supposed to "keep right except to pass." The problem is it's not enforced (as far as I can see; someone else on one thread knows of being ticketed).

Looks like a New Jersey state police car (and New Jersey plates), to the extent I can tell.

Note that most council houses have been sold off
Nexis, this is typical British urban housing, although the styling of the houses can vary quite a bit within their groups, this is general:

Edwardian Terrace:



1930's Semi (proper suburban sprawl):



Council estate (AmE-projects)



1950's Council Estate- After inner-city slums were destroyed by the blitez and post-war reconstruction:






Modern:

I wonder where all the cars went

Nice pic of the Storebelt Bridge in the Danish thread!

Are you going to drive over the Oresund Bridge as well? Although 80EUR roundtrip is pretty insane.

No, I only have a few days and the additional € 80 isn't worth it for me for just a small daytrip into Sweden. I will mainly focus on the København area, I already made around 8 videos today!

Probably because it's Easter and he is on holiday. I have traveled on last days, too. But for go to the national orienteeing champioship. I have a fresh catch: I have a photo of a Russian car. But first I have to transfer it from my cell phone to the computer. When I do it I will post the photo on the strangest plates thread.

Chris, if you are going to Lolland and want to see something other than the motorways, visit Møns Cliffs. They are spectacular

What costs 80 euros, the bridge?
That is insane.

Yeah, a round trip. Making things insanely expensive is the Danish thing

But to be frank I think that only tourists pay the full amount. I may be a little bit fuzzy on the details, but I remember that with an electronic payment you can buy a subscription which reduces the cost of a crossing to 99 or 129 DKK (13 - 18€, depending on the day of the week), and the cost of subscription pays off after second or third crossing in the year. And if you daily commute over either of the bridges (Øresund- or Storebælt bridge), the tolls are tax-deductible.

I wonder what a train ticket to Malmö would cost. Doesn't the train also go over the bridge?

Standard round trip ticket from the Copenhagen Central to Malmö cost about 120DKK, you can use dsb.dk if you want to know the details. There are also some discounts available.

EDIT: It looks like the bridge tolls went a little up since I was in Denmark.
