I live more or less 100 km from where it happened...at 9am i was sleeping and I felt nothing (I sleep at first floor too)... the second shake at 1pm I was at the pc and still nothing, but my mother was in the next room and she said she felt... plus she was speaking at the phone with my grandmother that lives in Reggio Emilia at 5th floor and she felt it in live by phone. It's weird cause at my wall i have all license plates that vibrate and do noise even when children neighbours jump in their room...I didnt have notice of anything

It's no myth. It happened in Bucharest in 1977 and even worse in 1940. Thousands of people died and tens of thousands of buildings were damaged or destroyed. With about a forty year interval the next one is imminent.

I could feel it here in Mayrhofen, and it was really strange. I was still in bed, and outside there is some construction going on, but I could feel the place moving, and there was some rattling going on in the hallway. Never experienced an earthquake before.

Aftershocks are continuing in Bulgaria too, actually some 500+ of them since the earthquake more than a week ago... Hopefully not with such magnitude, that they cause more destruction and casualties. But still every day at least one is felt by the people in Pernik and Sofia... Yesterday there was a 3.8 one, this morning people woke with a 3.3. It's not really dangerous but keeps the psychological pressure and terror in people, especially ones whose houses were damaged last week. Again this night some of them slept in their cars because of fear, especially after the bad news from Italy... Rumours say that if there aftershocks is with more casualties than the first earthquake, than it can be the same over here...

Nice policewoman, Bogdy... But actually, she doesn't look much like under cover, even not wearing uniform

So, did someone erase all the license-plate threads? I can't find any scrolling back a few months, and the search function can't find any either.

I had a major sighting recently....

They are moved to the parent sub forum Infrastructure & Mobility because license plates have little to do with infrastructure.

I'm not sure that follows... :-)

In so far as the highways forum has expanded to cover other sort of road-travel-related topics, I don't see the problem. But that's not my decision. (And I'd checked out for a few months, so if there was an argument or something leading up to the move, I'm unaware of it and certainly not reviving it.)

Someone talked about this technology here not so long ago. It looks interesting.





I guess any modern motorway should be build with having in mind that it should be usable without much rebuilding with similar technologies (lets see which one wins) even after 30 years. Anyway its clear that electricity is the future in transportation.

Its just pretty ironic, that the Germans had stopped all their nuclear power plants plans.

Interesting, but very unpractical and probably very expensive too.

I dont know if it is so unpractical. Trolleybusses work fine in 13 Czech cities.

The winter and in general weather condition would pose a serious problems to a motorway network though.

It may be expensive, but railway is even more expensive. And with the oil being scarcer and scarcer there is not much of alternatives left. In fact, this seems to me like quite efficient way how to adjust current infrustructure into the electric powerd one.

Trolleybuses are efficient because they always follow the same routes and have a high frequency schedule.
What is more, the electric engines give them a better acceleration than diesel powered buses.

The general efficiency of eletric long-distance power lines is not so high, due to dispersions... even some railways would not be electrified today due to this.
I don't see any advantage in loading more weight on trucks (electrical equipment), making the infrastructure way more complicated, and ignoring the advantage of diesel engines at constant speed.

If straight freight traffic is so dense... you need a railway, not a motorway.

Well I can see its advantage on the main freight routes.

Railways are great, but there is lots of time and resources lost becuase of the modal change. With a trolleytruck you just click off the pantograph and go on to the final destination.

Railways are ok for bulk cargo or very long distance haulage.

A very long wire of a low voltage (0,5-3kV, DC) is very(!) uneconomical. Having a high voltage (10-50kV, AC) power wire right above the motorway would not really be comfortable and could cause accidents.
