We know all, that some people shouldn't be allowed to have driving license. Here are two compilations of various traffic camera videos from Slovenian motorways, showing:
Reverse driving on motorway (geisterfahrer) :bash:
Cyclists, pedestrians and skaters on motorway :lol:

Those situations on Slovenian motorways are not very frequent, but nevertheless they are very very dangerous. How often do they happen in your country and maybe post some videos.

You see often elderly people with scootmobile's (don't know how they are called in English) on the Motorway. Those things go like 10 - 15km/h.

Ghostriders are mostly at night.

We still have too few motorways to be able to tell you, the only section which is more than 200 km i don´t travel on it.

Ha-ha! Those people are plain stupid, but it is too sad they endanger the lives of others. In Russia, this can happen easily. One of the problems I encountered in Kaliningrad region was the horse-driven carts with farmers riding on the shoulders. If there was no shoulder - no problem - they would ride in the right lane.... at 15 km/h! :lol:

In America, I have never seen anything bizarre. The only exception was the huge traffic jam that forced people to make u-turns on the on-ramps. Some people made u-turns on the motorway and used the shoulder as a reverse lane. However, the traffic was completely immobilised and many drivers were eager to exit the motorway, and other drivers were very understanding and cooperative.

In Toronto we drove by a guy in a wheelchair, he had one lane blocked off and people were getting out to see what was going on.

Apparently my cousins saw some lady running naked down the 111 orbital road in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

I saw trucks parked on the Polish A4 (before rehabilitation) on the right lane. That lane was in such a bad condition no-one would drive there anyway...

In some western US states, if the ascend is too steep, lorries drive in the emergency lane (aka shoulder) with blinking hazards. Also, in the State of Washington, there are even signs directing slower cars to use the shoulder. I think it's cool when the DOT is actually trying to ease the flow of traffic rather than impose more speed restrictions.

@ Alex, in Europe, you see often a third (or even fourth) "crawling lane". Slow vehicles can acces this lane on the right, while cars and faster trucks can pass on the other 2 or 3 lanes.

Do you maybe know if there's a similar video from HR? I remember seeing it or at least hearing of it, it was about what people do in the tunnels... (I think there was a guy that was running around naked in a tunnel or smth...) :nuts:

i saw it on tv once, i'm not sure if it exists at net. but those slovenian scenes are more crazy. i mean-guys stopped to piss in tunnel. or drinking beer in tunnel :eek:hno: on this croatian clip are scenes from tunnel Sveti Rok (turning, stopping, driving 200 km/h, driving to rear...)

now i remember that once i saw german tourists at Rijeka bypass who stopped to rest in SOS lane. they had dog who ran out of car to motorway and got killed by driving vehicle :eek:hno:
thanks god, i have never seen cyclists or pedestrians, although i saw people running across motorway at service areas (from one side to the other) and woman with little child who's been triing to cross motorway near toll booths Lučko with huge amount of traffic. she looked like this C64 game when frog must cross the street full of cars :D

A friend of my just encountered such a situation on the Brussels R0. And he made a pic of it :lol:
The pic was just a good shot, because he was taking pics in Belgium, but this scares the shit out of you.
