It's not a public road, though, and 45% refers only to the steepest point.

Fford Pen Llech in Harwich, Wales is signed as 40%

It used to be signed as 1 in 2-and-a-half.

"motors" = motorbikes, or motor vehicles in general?

Motor Vehicles. I believe the warning is an attempt to dissuade casual attempts by tourists to the area to drive down it. "Heh, that road is steep, let's drive down it". It's only advisory.

IIRC the Scanuppia (or Malga Palazzo) is not that steep, I believe it doesn't get steeper tha 30% or so. Now that I think, is there such a sign at the foot of the Nebelhorn in Oberstdorf, Germany? That road has a 42% slope!

"Motor" was the word used for a car in the English language.

While the "car", as we know it today, is a relatively new invention, that word in the English language is many centuries older. Its meaning has just changed.

In the older centuries "cars" were just driven by horses. When cars that have the power to move themselves started appearing in Great Britain, they were first called automobiles, but that eventually changed into "motor cars". The word "motor" was needed to tell them apart from horse-drawn "cars". For well over half of the century, motor cars and horse-drawn cars coexisted.

Over time, the word "motor car" was shortened to "motor". The word "motorway" comes from that time, and has unfortunately been mistranslated to (for example) Swedish as motorväg and in turn to Finnish as moottoritie, while it actually means the very same as German Autobahn and French autoroute. The sign (or the sign that existed before it, and has merely been replaced without changing the wording) thus means "unsuitable for cars".

During the last 50 years or so horse-drawn cars have more or less disappeared, and this in turn has released the old word "car" to replace the "motor" in the English language, as we know it today.

I just wonder is it forbidden that dogs walk on the street, or go to the beach?
