i have a question for you:



What's the speed limit in state highways?

I also really like natural sound barriers, they look really good, don't get graffitti or anything like that, and are effective... Great if you have plenty of space for highways.
Its 65mph on Rural Freeways ,
55mph on Urban Freeways,
55 mph Divided Rural Hwy
45-50 mph undivided Rural Hwy
30-50 mph County Rural Route
25 Mph Urban Streets
20-25mph School Zones

The Natural Barriers are made form Rocks , or small hills that line the roadway and thick patch of Trees, the Natural Barriers you can find along some State Hwys in Rich areas of North & Western Jersey. Rock Walls are used on a Few Interstates in North & Central Jersey , and some busy rails.

Half of the cars on the pictures are Japanese... Now I know why GM is bankrupt
But... Good choice, Japanese cars are the best (I have Toyota Celica.. )

On Topic: You have very good roads there. Only road signs are strange for me as I'm European. Next Summer I'll be in the NYC so I have to study your signs.

Interestingly, most of those Japanese-branded cars are in fact built in the USA.

I hope that you enjoy the USA. It is an unimaginably VAST and varied nation. About 310M people and many, many areas of true, middle-of-nowhere solitude. An idea of how vast? If I was planning to drive between NYC and Los Angeles I would be budgeting 5 DAYS for the trip - ONE WAY. Chicago is at least a one-day drive from NYC. (It is said that more full-blood Poles live in Chicago than live in Warsaw.) Each USA state is about the geographic size of a European country - and just as varied from one to another.

Japanese Cars are mostly driven by Younger people , same with Expensive Euro Cars, most people here have a diverse Driveway of Euro-American-Japanese.
In Rural areas , most people have cars,maybe 1-2 , in Suburbia it can 1-5 cars in the richest or Biggest Families , Urban its usually 1 , becuz people use mass Transit.

I forgot to post my County Routes of Passaic County

Sorry if I've not understood what you're saying, but I would say there is a much bigger difference between European nations than there is between US states.

Culturally, yes, there are bigger differences between European countries. But the US has more diversity in terms of climate zones. Deserts, large grasslands, and humid subtropical regions don't really exist in Europe, for example.

That's true I suppose, although parts of Spain sure look arid to me- I've never been- just based on pictures.

Europe's only desert is in southeastern Spain. There are more areas that call themselves desert in Europe, like in Poland or the Netherlands, but those are not real deserts, only areas with sand.

We do have steppes though, mostly in Ukraine and southern Russia.

I was under the impression that the scrub wasteland in Almería and Granada provinces was mostly a result of out-of-control vegetable growing. If I had to pick the kind of North American desert to which it was most similar, I'd probably choose Chihuahuan. The desert biomes of the Sonoran Desert (Arizona) and the basin and range country of Nevada and western Utah are significantly different in terms of rainfall, topography, and the kinds of plants and animals that grow there. The Baja peninsula in Mexico (though not part of the USA) also has very unusual "fog deserts" where sea fog blows over without condensing or falling as rain.

About the Eurasian steppes, I am not sure. They aren't tallgrass prairie, are they? If I were an American bison and I were parachuted into a steppe in Ukraine or Russia, would I be happy?

Taiga is one type of biome which exists in Asia (primarily Siberia) but not, as far as I know, in Europe. I am not sure it exists in either Canada or Alaska.

Taiga is also in northern Scandinavia

This is the Tabernas Desert in Spain:

That's good but I don't know how it is in the USA but here in Europe we say that cars built outside of Japan are not the same quality comparing to cars made in Japan.

I know geography of the U.S.A. very well... We have it in school. Someone said that cultural variety in Europe is much bigger. It's true. Different country is a different country. Maybe landscape is more different in the USA in different states. Well it's almost continent-size country. Maybe in the future I'll have time to explore the whole country. First I should explore Europe, it was never that easy as it is today - no borders at all and one currency.
This summer I will be in NYC and Miami. This will be a vacation trip with some business discussions with my cooperators and a perfect opportunity to improve my language skills.
There is only one problem. I hope that I'll get a visa...

I think the European part of Kazakhstan is mostly a desert, as well as the part of Russia west of it (except Volga).

they are sure as hell not stout at all. - there are at least two in the mountains around Roanoke, Virginia, neither of which is in good condition, and fortunately, a road of any significance (aka paved) does not cross them. One is used for someone's driveway, and the other was on the older route of a secondary highway which has since been upgraded (aka paved and built into a modern 2-lane road) with a modern concrete bridge nearby, within sight of the original covered one.

And one more thing... Why do you drive on a parkway but park on a driveway? (I happen to know exactly how to get to where that parkway image is.)
