A railway was already proven uneconomical in the 1930's. There's currently a fast bus from Alkmaar to Leeuwarden, once an hour.

I have seen so many photos of people driving down unfinished roads in Eastern Europe, are you allowed to do that?

The road Google-car and I were on is actually completed with asphalt, but Arad bypass construction site is very close and all the trucks pass on that road so the asphalt is covered with mud from the construction site.

I said before: it's not a dirt road, but a road with asphalt covered with dirt because of the construction site nearby

I know, That's why I put "dirt" between brackets, because you said that it was asphalt.

I have never seen the Google car, but my brother saw it a couple of years ago.

Very nice. The Romanian greeting is "să-ți trăiască"!

Of course it is not. But then many people don't obey that.

Myself I've driven quite few times on those unfinished roads but at least I'm civil engineer, have a knowledge about safety in construction areas and I also know quite some people who work on those project.

Weird/silly Nissan ad targeted for the Brazilian market (the second half is also official but only present on Internet versions).

Subtitles aren't good at all, but I guess you'll understand it. It plays with the horsepower word in Portuguese and compare it to ponies.

The truck first shown stuck in the mud is a Subaru.
