What's the use of mentioning that your lights should be on from 1-1 to 31-12? You can just leave that out IMO

Idiot.
Yeah I saw that too..

I have no problem with people familiar with a stretch and the traffic at that time of day drive a little faster, but driving 217km/h in a tunnel with no emergency lanes and an 90km/h speed limit - that dude should have gone to jail for endangering others!

This one is pretty much outdated, now we use these two:

Man, we in Ontario are so lame. The maximum is only 100km/h (62mph), and if you go 50km/h over that your car is impounded for a week

(Granted, I hypermile and try to keep at a maximum of 90km/h (55mph), so I can't complain)

The US has quite low maximum speeds, yes. In Europe, a Vmax of 80 mph is normal in most countries

And I thought it was bad here, where the maximum speed limit is 110 km/h. Although because Sydney's road infrastructure is so poor, many of the most important through routes have sections with limits as low as 60 km/h, or even 50 in some places.

Hmm... I've been to Croatia every year for the last few years and I've never noticed. Maybe because of the yellow signs you're using for directions on national roads and "brze ceste", I got the impression that all your signs are still on yellow background.

only national roads are yellow. expressways are blue. and motorways and main roads were the first which got white signs in 2000. i don't know what you've seen. the changing went pretty fast, i was surprised with it because i expected 5 years of multicolour signs

New Slovak speed limit sign valid since 1st February 2009:



Note we are introducing speed limit 50 km/h in built-up area (now it's 60). Maximal speed of trucks on motorways and expressways increased from 80 to 90 km/h as well as maximal speed of all vehicles on motorways and expressways within built-up area. You must turn your light on during whole year, now it's obligatory only from 15th October to 15th March.

What's the speed limit on single carriageway expressway (R)? Is it really 130 km/h?
