The dust resulted in road works is simply blown away by the workers to the surrounding cars and pedestrians.

Romania, DN 72 (Targoviste to Pitesti)

DN (=drum national) means national road, the highest rank in Romanian roads, except motorways. It doesn't look like, does it?

Romania, DN 72 (Targoviste to Pitesti)

Road full of potholes, about 25 miles long is like this. Radar detectors are legal in Romania, but I couldn't exceed 25 miles/hour because of the road.

It seems like roadworks will never end under this section of the motorway passing over DN 7.

A1 is basically the only and the most known motorway in Romania. But when you leave it, you find the harsh reality of romanian roads full of potholes.

I don't remember seeing it better in 20 years and I drive there almost every month. Due to potholes the car was shaking and the picture is blurred.

This 9 mile section is the newest, works begun in 2005 and ended a few months ago. It includes 7 bridges. Actually it is used as a bypass for Pitesti. It is considered the best road in Romania. Total cost was 114 millions euros.
