I don't like to start up my car when it's below -20 C because the engine wears out when it does not get sufficient lubrication at a cold start.
It was -21 today morning here. 40 minutes pre-heating with Webasto, and no problem on starting, and the inside temperature was rather comfortable. Nice piece of hardware in the arctic conditions.

I really like the system used in UK and Germany. We had that system in my town, but now we have the US one.

Bulgaria uses the same system everywhere in the country - always 1-2 sec of red+yellow after red and before green.

Finally, after a long time, I decided to retire my sad cat avatar. I replaced it with a MN I-35 shield (The same I have in AARoads). The I-35 choice is obvious (read my signature ). The Minnesota choice has a background history that starts just after Expo 2008 ended.

BTW, I don't mind about that like thing.

Wait for the Italian A35 being built between Milan and Brescia.

It's a joke and all jokes are exaggerations

Anyway, I like the system where red and yellow appear together before green.

I think it's generally in Romania.

I also like the the system in Germany, Austria, where you get the yellow light before the green, so you can shift into gear until green comes.

I've been in France a month ago, and seen the same style as in Romania.
Also road lining is not as intuitive as in Germany, had some difficulties where exactly to go being new to the place.

Thanks, but I have to clinch TE-35, C-35, CV-35, A-35 and RM-F35 before . Oh, and ride bus routes 35 in Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga, Granada and San Sebastian. I have already ridden bus routes 35 of Valencia and Zaragoza, the later one is my favourite bus route (I have ridden the entire route!) and the one which stated my 35 obsesion.

Austria has extremly long flashing green light. in Slovenia it was removed years ago, probably because of speeding during flashing.
