I think someone who would commute everyday Eindhoven - Groningen (aproximately the same distance as BS-TO, just you travel across almost entire Netherlands) would pay a lot too.

Don't you think that all new cars sold (some already are) should have been equipped with two separate switches to operate fog lights? And the one for the rear fog light should be properly described when is allowed to use. I am just fed up driving behind those idiots who use rear fog lights when the visibility is as good as you might see Big Ben from Manchester if it was a little taller. Or those who during heavy rain use combination of front spot lights and rear fog lights.

This gets on my goat too. People who se fog lights (front or rear) when it isn't foggy should be shot. No excuses shoot the scum!

What's going on here?, a dispute over a traffic accident ?

Did someone try to rob the bank before Italy reverts to the lira?

No, this photo has nothing to do with Italy.

But these gentlemen are involved in an argumentation about something, maybe not related to traffic, but obviously to money.

It is a customs issue. Photo is taken right on the border with Italy and San Marino, judging by that sign.

All the signage I can see is in Italian. Including the sign to the customs post. Maybe someone was trying to smuggle euros out.

(I'm not being serious, by the way. )

EDIT: Arrows are for NordikNerd.

This is San Marino, but the italian border is further away. The sign shows the citylimit of Dogana.

Can someone confirm that the men in uniform are customs staff ??

I thought "dogana" was Italian for customs?

According to wikipedia: Dogana is a town and a civil parish (curiazia) in the north-eastern corner of San Marino in the Serravalle municipality (castle).

Yes, and it also means Customs. And it`s right on the border. This is handy...

I hear they are building a town in Arizona, called Immigration-and-Bordercontrol. I think it`s on the border somewhere.

The uniformed men reassembles san marino police officers, probably not a customs issue.

Check out Google maps. There are place-names (I'd hesitate to call them towns, but what do I know) called Dogana in both San Marino and Italy, about 1 km apart.

And this one. (It's centered if you "hide the panel.")

Road_UK's making the Arizona one up. I assume.
