It's a Polo, but it has steering wheel on the wrong side!

E-ZPass on most toll roads in the U.S., at least in the Northeast and out to the Chicago area. If you must pay tolls, may as well not have to sit in line and fumble with cash....

Are you sure about Germany? I'd say there are a lot of gantries with reading units.

Just seen a car from Monaco. And as usually, Italians are all over Ljubljana, more than all other foreign plates combined.

Seriously, how come we see all these bizarre car-related scenes from Southeastern Europe?

They buy vehicles and parts cheaply in Germany and make a good trade in them. A1 in Austria is full of Romanias and Bulgarians going backwards and forwards. A lot of them have trailers with scrap vehicles still with British and French numberplates on. You also see that a lot in Poland and the Baltics.

This also happens in western Europe, but you don't have cameras like us to take pictures

I see. I'm somewhat surprised it's not more widespread; over here, all the toll roads are gradually being converted to E-Tag only. Soon there won't be the option of stopping at a cash booth, even on older roads. It makes things a lot more convenient.

Indeed, it is a Polo. I don't know where it was produced, though.

I think it is easier in a country like Australia that is an island, thus no international billing issues.

By the way, a question: are there vehicular ferries between OZ and NZ? Is it common to spot cars from one country in the other? Can you use your Australian driver's license in NZ long-term and vice-versa?

Eating roadkill's legal in Tennessee (and I have no idea about any place else - it's just that Tennessee got a lot of attention, i.e. jokes from Northerners, when they legalized it a few years ago), so maybe it's something aboiut being in the southeast of...whatever larger entity you're in?

Sorry I've misunderstood the question.

Yes I do, thank you. Houses of Parliament are miles apart from Tower Bridge and St Paul's.

Beat me to it!

Merry Christmas/Joyeux NoŰl/Buon Natale/Feliz Navidad/Wesołych Świąt/etc.

I still have to do my Christmas shopping, but there are just three gifts to buy (Mom, brother and a cousin). I'll be fine once I can decide what to get. (I prefer to do that and then get it, rather than wander around looking for ideas getting frustrated and stressed.)

Now, if the Weather Channel had to start naming winter storms, like hurricanes, couldn't they have come up with a less silly name than Euclid?? http://www.weather.com/news/weather-...uclid-forecast

Merry Christmas ho ho ho.

About an hour ago I got out of my van, fell over an icy patch and hurt my arm. Going tits over arse on a busy street is not very good for my street creds ;-)
