Transcontinental highway interconnecting Brazil to Germany

Yep, we can temporarily go from Brazil to Germany by car:

Thanks to somebody changing nodes coordinates using Level0 (I am not blaming Level0, but the person).

Err opps .. 4 years ago.

At 30 km/h that would take some time. I'd take it there are not fuel stops along the way either... But as an alternative to flying and shipping your vehicle .. excellent.

I think the editors now object to long segments like this on upload.

Only the node was modified, and not the way https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/45951546/history That is why we see the way with 4 years old.

JFTR: The European end was in the Netherlands, not in Germany.

The changeset is also in Dutch, but I guess you can use the actual road network to get from Germany to The Netherlands :-)

In my defense, I took a first look using the map with a low zoom level.
And it seems that it was in Germany :-)

Isso está sutilmente repercutindo em desfavor do Level0. Veja o último WeeklyOSM, por exemplo.

Well, Level0 is a powertool in the extreme: No safety checks, no abstraction beyond the OSM API, anything goes. It does not encourage destructive or misleading edits, unlike the-app-that-shall-not-be-named.
