This is true. I just think when there is a white line on my left, that the lane next to me is going the same direction. In Europe, the reality would be bad news for me. Yellow makes that distinction. Also agreed on the shields, always loved them, but I totally respect the European road system.

I find the Yellow line much easier to See on Back dark Country Roads and At night overall. Its even easy to detect if a light layer on Snow is covering it

If you mean the E-numbers, they don't really exist, in most countries the roads are known by the local/national numbers, and the E numbers are often not signed.

Correction Daniel.... Denmark, Norway and Sweden uses almost ONLY E-numbers. We have national road numbering systems but E-roads only have their E-number, no national number.

Plus Belgium, although they do have their own numbering too, but nobody uses that.

The E-numbering system is a bad ripoff from the Interstate system. Trying to create a grid on a continent that has many peninsulas doesn't really work. South Korea is an example where an Interstate-like grid did work.

I think Europe needs an Interstate system. For an example. In the US, you can go from Canada to Mexico on the same road. In Europe, if you travel along E45 from Denmark to Italy, the E-numbers vanish as soon as you cross the German Border.

If you take a look, cars that want to make a return, don´t have to stop.
also is a continuous flow intersection, a mexican innovation.

There'd better be some massive traffic on and off that freeway, since such a solution is necessary

Look-- pedestrians are directed to cross the bridge on the median.

It'll be interesting to see how successful this interchange is-- or is regarded as being.

No left turns. Missouri's DOT seems to enjoy experimenting. It'll be interesting to see how this turns out.

It seems pretty dumb, since there is no separatee turn lane for people getting onto the freeway. So, if the traffic backs up enough (and not that much is needed), someone can't make a left onto the entrance ramp. How is this different than waiting for a light to change with a regular left turn?

I think the traffic signals are timed so that if you get a green at the first signal, you'll get green at the second signal as well.

I saw something a year ago or so about those intersections, indeed in Mexico, that had soemthing to do with the turning radius of lorries.
