    There are only three Taco Bell restaurants in the UK, all of them on military camps, so access is restricted to the personnel only. Rest of the countries she crossed, I think so ...

    I've never actually been to Europe but there are no checkpoints between countries? How the hell does that work?

    I can't even drive through California without declaring first.

    This is a made up story. Brought to you buy all the "newspapers" that have no news to report.

    There are almost no checkpoints in Europe anymore. This is pretty stupid because each country still has different laws on almost everything. That's why a lot of people could easily visit The Netherlands to buy their weed (now it's a bit harder). Or you could go to a country with nearly no restrictions on guns and buy machine guns and easily import them to the countries were they are illegal.

    It gives a lot of freedom, but also has it's flaws.

    if the maps on the site are correctly no .. there are no checkpoints thru A1 on europe ... only difference between the borders will be the languages ... What's '' smelly '' in this story it's ... if she drive for two days she had to refuel & to eat ( supposedly she didn't sleep at all ) ... but still it's way too much time to be awake for her age ... I have no clue why UK tacobells come into discussion since she drive from belgium till croatia under no circumstances she didn't had nothing to do with UK borders lol .

    You think it 's stupid is because you assume the laws are made to restrict the buyers in the first place. In reality, governments make the laws in order to restrict the sellers ;) The reason should be obvious.

    That 's why for example you have different treatment on drug possession and selling drugs.

    It's not stupid at all, and it's not throughout Europe. It's only the countries that are within the European Union, excluding travel to the UK where they check you.

    Oh and the story sounds like bullshit to me.

    some times most of the companies doesn't provide proper quality of their products by which such types of situation occur and we have to face a very big problem; just what happen with that Belgium woman.

    So, get awared from the quality products and get Gps tracker of a reliable company with more enhancing features in it.

    Its only countries that are members of the Schengen Agreement which is not part of the EU.
