If you don't want your pictures shared with people from around the world, you simply don't post them anywhere on the net at all. It's as simple as that.

I wouldn't say they look more cool than in Poland or Czech Republic. Those new motorways in Poland are much better than ones in Lithuania. It's not about coolness anyway... it's more about adequacy and quality of roads. In this sense Lithuanian roads are indeed in a very reasonable position compared to most other countries in the region.

A14 in Lithuania. Utena - Vilnius

Here is my first attempt to make a road video Last sunday I drove from my hometown Rokiškis and decided to tape a video on A14 road between Utena and Lithuania capital city Vilnius. Unfortunately I don't have a car camera holder and also forget to put Easy function to camera, so sometimes video is too bright ( I tried to correct this, when I putted a video to my computer, but still some moments is too bright). But I will take this to account and next video should be better.
So here is a map of my route. Starting on the edge of Utena and finishing in Vilnius:


Distance between cities - 95 km. This is only road in Lithuania with concrete pavement. Currently it's ~60% is concrete.

And the video:


Some remarks according to time of video
04:59 - Junction near Molėtai
05:19 - On the right near road cops with VW Passat
06:46 - The beggining of last year recontructed 10 km long stretch
07:54 - Viaduct
10:35 - a a right turn to geographical center of Europe!
11:25 - Again cops on the right, this time with BMW 3-series
12:21 - The beggining of recently finished stretcht just before Vilnius (road was widened to 2x2)
12:45 - A traffic light junction. There is technical project being made and after some years should be reconstructed to 2 level crossing
13:32 - Entering Vilnius

Very nice, Paulius! I watched it from A-Z.

A few remarks;

* The road is wide, with small shoulders, allowing for high speeds still to feel safe (compare this to our 5.5 - 6 m provincial roads in NL!
* The speed you were driving, I guess it's about 110 km/h?
* Not a single time to slow down or stop before you reach Vilnius
* Not a single village you have to pass through
* Not a lot of hair-raising driving behavior. I only saw one time where you had to move a bit to the right because someone passed a bus.
* the road pavement quality could be better, but it's not dramatic
* quiet rural scenery

I'll just add a few remarks.

This road is the only concrete road in Lithuania.

The quality is acceptable but quite bumpy and you can certainly feel that it's concrete and not tarmac (unless you drive a car of higher class of course) which i a little annoying. In my opinion it needs a complete reconstruction.

There are quite a few towns and villages nearby but Lithuania has got very low population density which means that it's not always easy to notice a "village" which is made up of just 1 or 2 houses somewhere further away off the road . Even more so in Latvia which has approximately same land area as Lithuania but significantly lower population.
