Believe me, its still worth visiting.
In Holland we are quit progressive in the way we do things.
Like driving 300+ where you only allowed 120.
The cops can't get you because they have small cars.
At the moment the weather is cold and there will be snow this week so we have to be patient before we can drive again.
How is it over there ?
I've heard the cops are very difficult in your country.

re

cops difficult? that depends,over here because we have different states it varies.
some states have zero tolerance for speeding,some are a bit more passive
the traffic laws change from state to state. most of the peeps i know that like to go fast
run at a track whether its 1/8 or 1/4 mile where saftey is controlled. the risk of hurting someone else is taken out of the picture.i race my bike and my car at the track at believe that's where racing should be done.you may be able to tell i'm not an advocate of street racing or high speed driving on public roads-our hiways are not designed for that kind of driving so it can become dangerous. although there are some roads in texas that are very suitable for high speed driving and i can't say my speedo has never seen 145 a few times :twisted:
i was even stopped once in tx clocked at 147mph by a texas trooper who was driving a mustang and he said he was glad i stopped cause he did'nt think he was gonna be able to catch me and he really wanted to see what i had under the hood :lol: -no ticket :shock:
he was a nice guy and said that if i would have been any where else i'd be in jail but since i was away from any town on a flat section of deserted hiway he let me go,but as a rule over here police really enforce speed limits and rightfully so imo

I've had a few city cops try to make a U turn and give me tickets, luckily I spot them from a distance and make myself scarce, I've been trying not to speed though, I think that'll be easier.
