I think your example though is a very dangerous way of merging in traffic onto the highway.. It would be best to merge the two incoming lanes before they both merge onto the highway..

but as for the problem I agree with you I noticed this too, you always have to pay attention is the only solution

Loved this video Great guy. I would have liked to see how the police officer continued, I think it was not the wisest move to park his car in the middle of the intersection.

Why is it so that in Latvia only the main roads are covered whereas in Estonia pretty much every public road has been photographed? Will the new images also include smaller roads?

Most of the roads on the Latvian map's are covered. The problem is that Google has alot mroe detalied map's frop Estonia than Latvia. For example most of the smaller towns like Ainaži only has one road with no name leading through them, while in reality the town has alot of streets.

In wich I immediatly discovered that new suburbs in Riga have nothing more than dirt or gravel roads and that in suburbs in Tallinn where majority of the houses still need to be build allready have a nice cover of asphalt and nice lighting. In both countries the suburban homes looked nice.

Is there a reason for this difference?

Construction of asphalt roads and lighting was usually set up in the contract but I'm pretty sure that in some areas this was also enforced by the municipality to receive the necessary permits for the plots. However, there are still some suburban areas without asphalt roads for whatever reason.

Probably because time spent on taking pictures was the same with Estonia, we have longer road network which meant taking pictures of important routes only. Now they will work on what is left.

Can someone help me in finding the name of a song? I'm searching for the title of the background music in this video - http://gospodari.com/reports/ruhnal-simvol

PS. The reportage is from Burgas, Bulgaria and it shows the central pedestrian bridge at the beach.

No way to find it. It's in the background, there're people talking and other noises. Furthermore Shazam couldn't distinguish Benny Hill Theme Song while I was searching it a few days ago, so there's no way to find this.

Studies have shown it doens't really matter which lane you pick in a regular traffic jam. If it's slow traffic, the right lane is sometimes faster because they're mostly trucks, which means fewer objects to accelerate and brake compared to the left lane. Not necessarily faster, but a more steady pace instead of the hyper stop-and-go traffic on the left lane. On the other hand, if there is a nearly stationary traffic jam (for instance because there is a lane reduction ahead), the left lane is usually faster because trucks can't merge as fast as cars.
