Great video's!

Try to watch how many Luxemburgians are speeding on our roads... I noticed it myself last week when I went with a friend to Baraque de fraiture to hang out 2 trailcams.

@ second video, 3:52 when are they going to fix that part? Plates say "route dégradé" like forever on that part.

The most fun part of the highway to drive starts in the second vid on 4.55 at Tilff. I love that part. Sometimes scary when it's busy too.

A lot of these Luxembourg registered vehicles are driven by Belgians. Either for tax reasons, or Belgian workers.

How easy is it to do that? ("That" meaning register a car in a country you don't live in.)

I don't know, but it is getting more popular in Belgium, Netherlands and even Austria to buy and/or register vehicles in Luxembourg. There are quite a few people in Innsbruck who register their vehicles there.

A lot of these cars are leased company cars. Or they lease it from a Luxemburgian company, or their company has an office in Luxemburg.

I don't think you can register your car in Luxemburg as a private person, unless you have your official home in that country. Off course, I think you can lease it in Luxemburg, if you like.

The Belgians are Champions of Speeding!

http://www.lesoir.be/actualite/belgi...ous-939870.php

But Dutch drivers can't be ticketed for speeding in Belgium:

http://www.lalibre.be/actu/belgique/...erbalises.html

Yes, arguably the articles don't actually say what the headlines lead one to expect....

What can I say, when my dad learned me driving he was like: I know it's 50 here but drive 60 because it feels so damn slow.

A lot of roads are 50km/h in Belgium because where there is a road, there are houses. Even on large sections of main thoroughfares are 50km/h for miles on end. It's annoying.

Also a lot of 70 in Belgium what would have been 50 in Holland and Germany. UK has a lot of 65 kph in urban areas as well. (40 mph)

But by German or Dutch standards of build up area almost every street in Belgium would be due to the bad planning.

Belgium has the worst possible spatial planning from a traffic engineering point of view.

Most roads are lined with houses, creating few possibilities to improve the road or to construct parallel roads for slow traffic, it creates a lot of conflicts (Belgium has the worst traffic safety in western Europe) and it exposes many more people to traffic noise.

It can't get any more Belgian I guess You were lucky on that road. When did you drive it? It's gridlocked very ofthen. The bridge at 0:55 is in a very bad shape. Underneath it is been studded by metal studs for as long as I can remember and the steel rebar in the bridge is exposed because concrete is missing!

It's possible. Search an old road (plenty of them in Belgium), organize some oldtimers and shoot a photo in sepia.

Look at the old crappy telephone dual-wire placed there... phased out sometime in the 1990s at the LATEST.

3 shots later all become clear:


Chris is right! Actually, it was April 2011 and the first picture has been slightly photoshoped but it does not make any particular difference. Belgian
roads rule...for those loving classic vehicles driven on the roads from the relevant era.
