Jelgava - Tallinn is more than a four hour of driving. I started in the morning and was home in the evening.

I would've been pretty shocked, if our cops had taken bribes, particularly on the border. I'd be so pissed off, he wouldn't dare asking me for cash again. But I've heard Hungarian cops take bribes, or used to, but only on southeastern borders.

If there's Zurich, I'm sure there's a Tallinn somewhere in the Netherlands too.

"Leningradweg".

Well let's say that part of the Netherlands turned out to be far more communist at elections than other regions
NCPN, New Communist Party Netherlands always have their highest support from eastern Groningen.

Those pics of Estonian highways are looking great. It seems to be a lovely landscape to drive in

it depends.. mostly on all parts of roads from Tallinn to south direction you would see nothing more than unending woods!

That's what I like, specially in the winter, when it's all covered with snow I don't like those boring grainfields and meadows..

The reconstruction of Kukruse-Jõhvi section on Tallinn-Narva highway has begun. Work is scheduled to end in October, 2010. More info here(in English): http://www.mnt.ee/atp/failid/Ku_Jo_ENG.pdf

The first stationary speed camera was yesterday put on the Tallinn-Tartu highway. By 30th November, there will be 16 speed cameras on this highway. Estonian Road Administration hopes to put up cameras on other highways too in the following years. Speed cameras are only one part of the plan to decrease road deaths to less than 100 by year 2015. And fortunately we are moving towards that goal. In June, only 2 people were killed on roads in Estonia.

I hope the camera is placed at a reasonable place... like near a dangerous intersection instead of a "cash location".

The cameras are placed at those road sections that have the biggest number of accidents so I think that's pretty reasonable.

Will there be traffic signs indicating that there is a speed camera ahead?

Nice to see such improvements in safety ensuring in Estonia! Cameras are good, but I think it would be better to install them in not such visible and empty places, like to hide them a little bit..
