This is the best solution, we should adopt it.

Temperature rose up to 20°C in Brescia. I know of people going to the seaside in Romagna, so possibly it's even higher there.

January 2012 has been the coldest winter month ever, and February is going to become the hottest winter month.

Still, they hope you don't have unlimited nomber of elderly relatives with unused driving licences, moreover such that will cover you up, and sooner or later they will punish you too, or at least you will change your driving attitude being afraid this will happen.

You think it's strange to spot a car registered in a country 10000 km away from yours? I guess it's even stranger to spot your license plates on another car almost identical to yours



Happened in Romania

Cloned plates In Italy happens too, it's not a rare phenomenon...but it is to have two cars with same plates next to each other!

It looks like it's on purpose. Some people might try to make some illegal actions using cloned plates so that the police will go after the actual owner of the plates and not the criminals.

I was in Salzburg today, and on service area Udine-sud, filling up the fuel is included in the price (1.8€/L!!). I had to make a fill up (for 10€) because my tank was empty before reaching Slo.
