Hmmm strange, we are not tax resident here either, but our accountant always wants the `pinks' when he does our tax return.

Re: Highway Roadworks near Aptera

Went through there at 11.00 this morning towards Chania - no police, just badly timed lights - about 12-15 getting through each time, delay time was about 10 mins.
Coming back about 1 hour later, there was 1 policeman at Aptera end, letting around 100 cars at a time each way, delay time about 5 mins.
