I think you can have tinted side windows in Germany but the windshield definetly cannot be so. How else would they identify a driver when they just flash a black window, hahaha.

This makes sense in Germany, in Italy flashes are just on the rear due a privacy question so radars and cameras can't take pic of the driver face

So I couldn't drive my car in Italy then?
I didn't install the dark rear windows, they were like that, I know you can even buy a new car like this if you want. And it has a license plate now, the picture was just after I bought it a day before I registered it.

I think such laws are applied only for vehicles registered in that country, aren't they? If in Russia having black windshield is legal, I think that he should be allowed to drive everywhere. Every country has its rules but everybody should be allowed to travel.

In Germany flashing from the rear would be pointless because only a driver can be fined, not the owner of a vehicle and those two are not always identical.

I'm sure you can. Another question is if it would be possible to register it with an italian plate in case you'd move there. THAT might be a problem.

Only if the two countries have assigned some agreements like "The Vienna Convention on Road Traffic 1968". Couple years ago, German police start to fine polish drivers with 50€ because of the length of scissors in First Aid kit.In germany should be some 21cm and in Poland there is not obligatory to have first aid kit Then polish police start to fine German drivers for not having fire-extinguisher in the car, because in Poland is obligatory to have and in Germany not. Than some lawyer found out that both countries have assigned The vienna Convenion and there is state that what is obligatory in one of the country it's not in other. Something like that

Like this you are allowing people to drive with summer tyres in countries where winter tyres are compulsory cause may come from a country where never snow and winter tyres are not necessary, or cars coming from countries where doesnt exist technical inspection to drive here being a potential danger

Now THAT would be a job for the EU to synchronize all those rules in Europe. That actually would make sense and thus it'll never happen...

I know I lived in Germany (and I miss it so damn much!!). Here when you get flashed you have to indicate who was driving (especially if you have to lose points on the driving license) . If you don't indicate it, the fine is on owner's head and it's the double

What if you forget ? I mean, the ticket usually takes 2 to 3 month to arrive, how can you possibly still remember who drove at that particular day ? In Germany it is unconstitutional to force a car owner to tell who drove. Why should we do the job of the police for them ?

Dunno, the only speeding ticket I got it was in Germany and I had to pay on the place In Italy at the contrary you cant be photographed by police if they don't have a motivating warrant due privacy. In past was used to flash the driver like in Germany and send the fine at home. But after somebody important was fined and photographed with the secret lover next to him on the seat and the wife didn't know it, this rule has been changed

Had that in Sweden once, doing a murderous 132 kmh on a completely empty motorway at 6:30 in the morning...

I buy euro coins in the UK at 1.50 and use them to pay for fuel in french supermarkets. My french diesel was 90p per litre last week compared to 110p using euro notes taken from a cash machine. Diesel is around 135p in the UK.

Discount war in Italy on last weekend!

• Super Unleaded 95 1.600 €/l
• Diesel 1.500 €/l

From today prices came back to the norm, with Super95 sold at 1.819 €/l and Diesel at 1.708 €/l!

It seems that this discounts will be available every weekend until the end of Summer!

If they'll do it again then Italy is going out of hell!

Paid $3.259/gallon for 87-octane in off I-78 Bloomsbury, New Jersey, ( https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&l...08229&t=m&z=17 ) yesterday. You've got a couple of truck stops next to each other there.

Saw some $3.219s in North Plainfield and Green Brook, N.J., along US 22, on Saturday, and that $3.259 is normal around Reading, Pennsylvania.

I went on a mini road trip last week to Minneapolis MN..

Before I left for Minneapolis on Thursday I paid $3.21 a gallon for unleaded plus here in Cedar Rapids IA.

Sunday in Minneapolis I paid $3.65 for regular unleaded on the Air National Guard base in Minneapolis.

The shocker was that when I returned to Cedar Rapids unleaded plus had jumped to $3.39 a gallon..
