Polish traders have produced fake Dutch license plates, which they have put on cars in Poland, in order to raise their price. The Telegraaf daily has more than a thousand pictures where the fraudulent plates can be seen. These cars are sold with registration papers. A Polish economist living in the Netherlands discovered the swindle in 2004. He has not been able to convince either the Dutch or the Polish authorities to do anything about it despite trying to do so for the past ten years.

The production of natural gas in the province of Groningen has caused earthquakes. A study by the engineering office Van Rossum, ordered by the provincial government, has found that 170,000 buildings, of which 152,000 are homes, will have to be reinforced. That will take twenty-seven years and cost 30 billion euros.
