Tell this to the road engineers over here. But until they stick strictly to Ist class road standards when building dual carriageways, I don't care that much.

^ Agreed! As long as it's completely secure and comfortable, and is a dual carriageway, then there's no problem we don't have them, it's about image mostly...

To all Estonian roadgeeks, start collecting signatures.

In the middle of something else, do you also know how much costs the 2nd stage for this project?

The procurement for the 2nd stage is yet to be held so no.

^ Lovely! Just as those 'stickmen' in the games! But is it really like that in real life, isn't that exaggerated a bit?

Per haps, but not much.
E=(mv2)/2. A 60kg person has a force of nearly 5800N when a crash happens at 50km/h. That's relevant to 580kg....So almost 600kg pushing the front seat passenger against his/her seat belt.

Besides, when the car rolls, the passenger without a seat belt will likely be flying around and damaging others.

I was in Tartu earlier today and saw a strange traffic sign:



Ala means zone (like in the 30kph zones, the restriction stands until another sign says it doesn't anymore, no matter if you go past intersections).

Now my question is: what is the general right-of-way rule in Estonia? In Belgium it's that drivers coming from the right always have right of way, unless otherwise stated by signs. So in that context a sign like this would be pretty useless.

But what does the sign itself mean, despite the 'zone'? Zone of what?

Not 100 % sure but I think that we have same rule in Estonia.
Just most of drivers in Estonia have used to this that if you don't have a stop or give the way sign you have right of way.
This signs of zones just let you know taht you have to be more careful and give way to all the traffic coming from right. Without this sign the rules would be same of course. It's just to remind you that you are in the zone where all the crossroads have same rules.

Right, stupid me, thanks, I knew that tbh, but that "zone" just made it complicated to recall, not an often view in Baltics, I suppose.

Ülemiste junction construction should start in either June or July,this year, and should last about 2-3years.

The reconstruction of E263 between Aruvalla and Kose will finally begin this year. It will be reconstructed into a 4-lane first class road with limited access and grade-separated junctions. Here's the video I've already posted in this thread before:


And here's the brochure(in English): http://www.mnt.ee/atp/failid/Voldik_ENG_0803181.pdf (If it doesn't work in your web browser, click "save link as")
