I can't afford to buy an apartment either... I rent it. Rent control only applies until you're 23 so, right now I'm paying about € 450 per month, which will decrease to € 260 when I turn 23. Strange, but true.

whoa... so when you're younger you're paying higher... very strange...
hmm... 450€ is a lot of money especially here... apartments for rent can be that big but only in centre or some high-class neighborhoods...
i'm kinda in exploring the possibilities and i'm thinking to go for a rent with a roommate but nothing over 150€ per person cause i wouldn't be able to live at all...

€ 450 is also a lot for me, I only work 32 hrs a week and I didn't work for too long yet, so my monthly income is not very high yet. So maybe somewhat less roadtrips until I'm 23

so you work only part time, and live in a flat of 450€
damn you
i have around 200 work hours monthly, that means lots of saturdays and sundays and at end it comes around 750€... i can live comfortably now, but if i paid rent it would be difficult...

@Verso... i'd love to move anywhere where i can call it my home... i can't wait for that day

And where is the only traffic jam in The Netherlands at 23.30 hours? Right, near Timonville.

It's nearly 0:30 hours and there are currently 7 traffic jams totalling 21 kilometers. Two are 5 kilometers long.

Actually, the typical night hour percentage on motorways is around 1%. So during a night, a 24 hour volume of 100.000 still gives 1.000 cars per hour during any hour of the night.

I've been in a lot of jams during the night. These jams are caused by road works for which the e.g. close all 3 lanes so all traffic has to go over the shoulder. Of course can't do it during the day, that would cause much more problems.

@Verso: No, I called Radi and complained about the rusty crash barriers, so he might have come over to polish them
