I can see you have not driven much in Norway. I WAS referring to ONE
SHARED LANE, and yes, the traffic goes in 80-90kph, and some drive
faster.. (thats crazy..) 18-wheeles drive a bit slower, but they keep up
the speed where there not to many sharp turns.

Some pictures of the wide parts of a single lane main route.

Where I drove on Sunday, there were no rock cliff beside the road, so
you can see far in front of you.

The speed limit on the upper image is 80kph....
