I don't think so. What does it add to traffic safety if you get a bill mailed 4 weeks later? The presence of a camera should do it. Speed cameras are there for traffic safety, not to generate as much money as possible (as in: hide them, so people won't notice them when they drive there).

France has proved that it is much better if speed cameras are signed.

Frankly speaking, construction works haven't started yet, unfortunately...

Quality is good

Also, I couldn't find a single car that's older than 10 years on that pic. Way to go Estonia!

Great pictures! Among Baltic countries, Estonia has the best quality roads, the worst -- I think you can guess...

I'd say Russia - Kaliningrad Oblast, as a quasi - Baltic country

Latvia has the worst quality roads among Baltic countries. I'd thought this one was easy.

At the moment, only around 20km are 2x2 starting from Tallinn. Construction works to extend the length of 2x2 to 35km should start next year. There are also plans to build an expressway all the way to Mo(around 90km from Tallinn) but only god knows when that will happen. But I'm glad that the construction works of Mo bypass(2x2, 6,5km) are going ahead at full speed. Mo bypass will be ready by September, 2010:



------------------------------------------------------------------

For some reason, Estonian Road Administration hasn't decided to build or plan any motorways(yet?). I think that we have too strict rules for building motorways so the prices would skyrocket. For example, motorways must be 100% lit which is rather stupid.
