Three word summary: It aids evacuation.

comment Planning a trip to Canada/US. Can I get US Pre-Clearance in Toronto for Land Crossing?
@Crazymoomin For immigration purposes, any distance longer than where a border guard can keep constant track of you is not near the border. The point is, you're going to enter Canada. (Note that a huge percentage of the Canadian population lives within a 1h30 drive of the US border. That means nothing.)

@Azor-Ahai For domestic air travel, all states' drivers licenses should be acceptable.

comment Cheapest way to travel inside Europe
@Agent_L Different strokes for different folks. While the proposed itinerary is extremely ambitious (and perhaps infeasible given the constraints), your suggestion to pick one place is probably equally extreme and unappealing in the opinion of some other people.

comment Cheapest way to travel inside Europe
@JoErNanO "Too broad"? I protest! I just wrote what I think is a good answer to prove that it isn't. Sure, the proposed itinerary is complex, but it's precisely the complexity that leads me to the advise doing a package tour instead. Breaking up the question would fail to paint an accurate picture of what the OP is trying to do, and we would be doing the OP a disservice.

comment Canada Low Cost Airline
If you consider Bellingham (BLI) to be "Vancouver", then there is Allegiant. (Be sure to pay attention to all the fees!)

comment Seeking Starbucks in Vienna very near to public transportation
"I am… moving to Vienna" — Doesn't that make this a question for Expatriates (if it's an appropriate question at all)?

comment Can I see fireworks from a passenger airplane (at cruising altitude)?
Don't all get up at once to look out the same side of the airplane: you'll upset the weight balance.

comment What are the drawbacks of taking TWO (unconnected) indirect flights?
Also consider the possibility that you may arrive at B on time, but your luggage gets separated and doesn't arrive for another day or two. In that case, the first company wouldn't be obligated to forward the luggage to meet you at C if you cobbled together your own itinerary.

comment When boarding a full plane, how can I guarantee that I can keep my handheld baggage with me?
The vest is a good idea in general, but keeping insulin close to the body could cause it to heat up beyond the recommended 86°F limit mentioned in one of the comments.

comment What's the actual speed limit on highways in California?
@vartec A tolerance is widely understood to apply in the US as well, but it's not written in law. My understanding is that the tolerance is a matter of enforceability due to measurement accuracy. Can you provide a citation in a European legal code that says that there is a "hidden" speed limit that is higher than what is posted?

comment What does it mean to be in the fast lane in California?
@LessPop_MoreFizz California's "reasonable and prudent" law only serves to reduce the allowable speed, never to increase it: "No person shall drive a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable or prudent…"

comment How can I rent a mobile WiFi hotspot during my five-week trip to the UK?
@O.R.Mapper The examples you have provided are USB WiFi dongles: 802.11 a/b/g/n NICs with no 4G support. Those devices are cheap to buy, and off-topic for Travel since they are nearly identical worldwide. If you want a "wireless modem with a 4G data connection" to provide Internet access to one computer via USB, then it's a "4G USB dongle" (no 802.11 a/b/g/n necessary). If you want a standalone device that provides Internet access to multiple computers via 802.11 a/b/g/n, then it's a "4G WiFi hotspot".

"WiFi dongle" sounds self-contradictory — are you sure that it's the right term to use? Are you looking for a 4G WiFi hotspot or a 4G USB dongle?
