In Denmark they are in towns.

Prepare to be shocked by the price of gas. Here a gallon sells at $11 and it's rising. I don't know about Norway and Sweden but suspect it's the same pattern.

Generally the speedlimits here are a bit higher than in the US and there's no turning right on a red light.

Andrea offers great knowledge and help again! I'm glad (s)he's on the forum! One small detail... petrol is currently about 11 Dkr/liter max, x 3.8 liters per gallon ~ 42 Dkr/gallon, and at current exchange, that's about $8.50 USD per gallon. Maybe the $11 is meant as a different country's currency (there's what, over 20? countries calling their currency dollar $). But everything else I've read from Andrea is spot-on!
