A Minor Country Road in Germany

A Minor Country Road in Germany
The asphalt area is kept narrow, which reduces construction costs and makes it impossible for two motor vehicles to speed past each other. If two vehicles are approaching each other in opposite directions, both will have to pull off on to the gravel verge, something that can only be done at low speed. This makes rat-running down minor roads too slow and laborious to be worthwhile, so these roads are very quiet and excellent for cycling. Note the immaculate asphalt.
