comment Flight ticket reimbursement after Travel Warning
@jpatokal: Most of the traveler's rights are based on EU regulations, but I am not sure in this case. Note that I did not write that an absolute travel warning would give OP the right to cancel this flight, I was just talking about flights in general.

comment How can we find out where there will be snow in Europe in December?
Are you looking for a place where there is guaranteed to be snow or a place which typically has snow around a specific date? Your question is not clear.

comment Flight ticket reimbursement after Travel Warning
@joko: Sorry, but merely being worried about involvement in political turmoil is far away from the common conception of "force majeure". The US travel alert is just an advice to defer non-essential travel. The German travel alert for Burkina Faso just recommends travelers to be in a state of increased attention. You are right that an absolute travel warning from the German foreign ministry gives you the right to cancel flights, but a German partial travel warning with the same wording as the US alert (avoid non-essential travel) would not have given you any special rights either.

comment Are Pakistani nationals restricted to entering India through four airports only?
@CGCampbell: Due to the tensions in the political relations between India and Pakistan, you are likely correct, but I don't understand what pnuts is trying to say in his last paragraph. Even without any general and "googleable" rules, some countries list allowed points of entry in their issued visa (which may very well be the case here), but if ATDC's friend had a booked international flight to a smaller airport, I don't see why anyone should assume that there is no immigration control there.

comment Are Pakistani nationals restricted to entering India through four airports only?
It does not really make sense that only Pakistani citizens are required to enter India via airports with immigration facilities. I would rather assume that everyone, even Indian citizens, are only allowed to enter India through designated border control points and that it is extremely unlikely that there are scheduled international flights to any airport in India without immigration facilities.

comment Dual Citizen entering EU with foreign passport
@Relaxed: Sure. My point is perhaps not quite relevant, as long as you have a non-EU passport, allowing you to enter the EU in the first place. French immigration is unlikely to have any records of the previous 80 days stay, so having only 10 days "left" of the 90 days allowed is also not going to cause trouble.

comment Dual Citizen entering EU with foreign passport
I agree with you completely. The EU regulation concerning the right of free movement for EU citizens especially specifies, that a passport or national id card is not required, but that EU citizens can prove their rights with "any means". Even if it might cause some hassle at the border or during an internal control, a Canadian passport and a Portuguese citizenship certificate should be more than enough.

comment Lost baggage, airline doesn't do anything
FWIW, I've been mailing back and forth with Turkish Airlines for the last six weeks regarding damaged luggage and they are only responding with obviously pre-written text blocks "We are sorry that ..." instead of answering my questions on how to proceed with the case.

comment Must drivers stop at zebra crossings / crosswalks in Michigan?
@O.R.Mapper Assuming that there are no further references to crosswalks in Michigan state laws, that I am not able to find, the Michigan Vehicle Code only regulates crosswalks in combination with traffic lights. Terry links to the relevant section 257.612 in his answer.

Part (4) is about disabled pedestrians and not crosswalks in general. What else?
