But is so funny and ridicoulous in a country like Slovakia, where people get angry when Austrians think of us as criminals but they do same to Romanians and Ukrainians. Well, Slovaks think of UA and Romania like about shit holes, same as Austrians and Germans think of Slovakia. Fair enough lol.

Romanians think the same about Ukrainians, Rep. of Moldova, -stans, Albania or African countries

Anyway, I am glad to see that at least most of the people on this forum don't associate Romania with gypsies.

For example, in my country you can get fined only if you drive [speed limit]+10 km/h.

I won't drive very fast and I will try to obey the speed limits, but it might happen to not notice one (for example at that 100 m long (or short ) tunnel).
in HR at motorways you can drive up to 150, nobody's gonna touch you. in tunnels 110-120. at state roads try to keep within 10 km/h over speed limits.
speed traps: before toll booths. there are those silly limits which force you to slow down 100-80-60 and finally 40 km/h. problem is that 40 km/h appears 500 metres before the booths, so it takes eternity to reach them. you don't have to make 40, but don't do over 60.

It took us probably about 5 mins, if we paid by cash I reckon it would be like 1/2 hrs.
that works only at exiting A1 before Zagreb. there is toll station Demerje only with automatic methods of payment (cards, ENC), and Lučko is only for cash. at Demerje there were only few times crowds.

This is a picture I took three years ago at Lučko. I had an entire hour at the queue to take it.

all tunnels in Slo are 100. on H4 even 80. there are some static radars near tunnels, so better pay attention.

I suggest you park your car in the new underground parking on Kongresni trg, it's really nice and also cheap (from 1st to 3rd hour just 1,20€). There you have everything in 5 minutes around on foot.

In Britain if you mention Romanians the first thought of many is 'thieving gypos'. However 'gypo' is a general term for any 'traveller' on these shores. Pikey is another term but thats normally directed at the travelling Irish or white people with a caravan.
