Location: Southbound highway A1 between Hamburg an Bremen in Germany.
Date: June 2004.
Remarks: I really hate this sign. Founded in Germany: It is forbidden for trucks with a weight of more than 7,5 ton to overtake more than 2 wheel vehicles. The main reason of this they say is that the traffic fluides more. Sometimes they are right, but most of the times it is bullshit.
Location: Southbound highway A1. Near Bremen.
Date: June 2004.
Remarks: As you can see 45 minutes later I'm still having the same fourwheeler with a boattrailer in front of my nose. About 800 meters further, the "leader" of this "convoy" is having a speed of only 80 km/h. This guy rules the rest of the "convoy".
Location: Southbound highway A1 near Bremen.
Date: June 2004.
Remarks: As you can see the view in my rearmirror is filled with trucks. Because the law in Germany says that there must be at least a distance of 50 meters between 2 trucks, everything looks ok. But everyone tries to wait patiently till overtaken is allowed at the 3 lane part near Bremen.
Location: Southbound highway A1 near Bremen.
Date: June 2004.
Remarks: And suddenly there's a 3 lane road wich means at the A1 in Bremen that it is allowed to overtake again. Now I'm having a different frontview. Putting the pedall to the metall. In Europe that means 89 km/h. At that speed the speedlimiter start to work.
Location: Southbound highway A1 between Bremen and Osnabrück.
Date: June 2004.
Remarks: Here we go again. Another slow driver in my front. That's trucking in Europe. After Germany starts with it in the seventies, now almost every country in Europe starts with this overtakeregulation. It is forbidden to overtake for trucks: In Germany daily at most highways between 6 am and 7 or 8 am. Some highways 24 hours a day! In The Netherlands at most highways during weekdays between 6 am and 10 am, also between 3 pm and 7 pm ( morning and evening rushhours ) Some highways between 6 am and 7 pm. In Belgium at most highways daily between 6 am and 10 am, also between 4 pm and 7 pm. A couple of highways between 6 am and 7 pm. Even worse, some highways 24 hours a day 7 days a week! And in Belgium it can be even worser: It is strictly forbidden for overtaking by trucks when it's raining on all highways everywhere in the country. That's because the spray trucks create! In this law the Belgians forgot to mention what happens when it is snowing or hail falls down!!!!!!!!!!!!!So officialy it is allowed to overtake then!!!!!!! Talking about crazy regulations.............. In France at some highways near or in cities from 6am till 7 or 8 pm. A few highways 24 hours a day. It is also forbidden in case of fog at all hihgways. Since the summer of 2001 I haven't visit one of the other European countries anymore, so I don't know what happens there right now.
