I've hit a dog once on the A26 between Reims and Calais. I stopped on the shoulder, and phoned the Gendarmes, and told them I hit something. A few minutes later the Gendarme came, together with SANEF security personnel. They informed me that I've hit a Labrador. "But the dog is dead, its not a problem" said one of the cops. As I lost my front numberplate, they made me fill out a form, and the insurance of toll operator SANEF paid for the damage.

Stray dog on a motorway? WTF? I'm sure that it was abandoned by some dirty bastard ******* that went to holiday and didn't want take care of if.

Yes, or it belongs to someone local. Either way, seeing that the tollroad operator is responsible for keeping their motorways clear, makes it also their responsibility to pay for any damage occurred by animals on their roads.

It could be responsible if the fence that separates the motorway from the countryside is broken or missing in some parts and the dog entered from there. If it was deliberately abandoned by someone I don't think they're responsible.

Well, they have claimed liability, and paid for the damage. I never asked for anything.

This weekend we will do a roadtrip in Austria on the Großglockner Hochalpenstraße (B107) and Felbertauern Straße (B108)

Day 1: http://goo.gl/maps/tlRtc
But I made also a backup plan in case there will be the usual congestion mayhem on A9+A99+A8:
http://goo.gl/maps/VNq3q + http://goo.gl/maps/jHF0a

Day 2: http://goo.gl/maps/iFXeU and towards Ingolstadt probably the motorway.

Any recommended cheap gas stations in Austria on the way?
I will check with ÖAMTC also.

Someone once said: "may you live in interesting times". I think we certainly do.

I never saw any Maltese coin yet but last week they gave me a 2 euro commemorative of Slovenia (2012 - Ten Years of Euro). Still not found the Italian version, but it's just a matter of time, they made millions of them.

Both Draghi €10 and €20 have been found in Spain . My cousin found one (€20) near Malaga and took it to my hometown. And no R-notes due to something strange, IMO is said with bad words. However I have a note which appears to be Finnish but I'm sure it was printed for Luxembourg.

Edit: Here's Draghi!
Luxembourg note, look at the comment.
And last but not least, Irish €100 note.
And if you want to join EBT, better to do it through the link in my signature.
