In Denmark the police is very "edgy" about this scooter ishue. Monday evening, there was a program in the tv about a young fellow, which was taken by the police. He did not have a helmet, he had a passenger and the scooter could run with 60.
He got a fine around DKK 3500,- and if he get cut with a scooter like this within the next 3 years, he can say nothing but good-bye to it!
It will be confiscated!!

I hear a lot of stories about Danish police. Apparently they are a bit harsh and oppressive.

That seems to be already for decades. I have relatives from Sweden (which has high fines too) and they often tell stories about Danish police from their friends or Swedish yellow news. I heard that it is almost a major crime to go 160 km/h on a motorway.

I've never seen a speed check in Denmark, nor any speed cameras for that matter. If they are around on the motorway, they must be doing it with unmarked police vehicles.

Anyway, the Danish speed limits are fairly reasonable, except for some remaining 110 km/h-stretches which are sometimes longer than necessary, but I believe it's policy to turn more segments to 130 km/h.

I have seen plenty of speed checks in Denmark. Their favourite is on the motorway bus stop behind the walls on the E47 between Copenhagen and Helsingor. But that is not my point. I am talking about harshness and a repressive police force. Several Danish friends told me about them, and I also had some Swedes confirming this.

Hello guys!

I need help.

I am doing a little elaboration:
The urban transport organization - solutions in Western and Northern Europe (hope I translated it well).
I'd like to gather as much information as possible. It is meant to be about those classic issues like zone 30, congestion charges, priority for public transportation and anything else that make life in the cities better, getting around easier, air cleaner and so on.

We all know those tricks that developed over the years but I can't just write down what comes to my mind. What I need are sources that I could refer to. Books titles, authors, articles, anything...

If you have any ideas, please share with me. Thanks in advance!

What's special about these plates apart from the numbers?

Apart from the numbers I'd say nothing. But they could come in quite handy at speed checks

Oh yeah, I forgot to tell the story. No one wanted to take these plates so the local police was forced to put them on their own car and use them.

Any of you have a recommendation for a 4 day mini vacation?
I have the period 1-4 November in mind.
It should be at decent distance from my location though, because booking a flight just 2 weeks before could be a little expensive

I could maybe try something like Berlin or Dresden or Strasbourg.
The weather is tricky in this period though.

They should have given them to some Chinese residents, 8 is a lucky number for them. I read in the license plate thread that a rich Chinese paid a lot of money to have a plate with many 8s (and someone claimed to have seen that car in Reykyavik ).

That could be a nice choice, Italy or Slovenia or Croatia.
My girlfriend wants Venice, but I heard in November there is high possibility of floods.

Berlin could be quite depressing in autumn, as well as Dresden. I'd rather head up to Alsace, however would chose to visit very colourful Colmar and surrounding towns (Riquewihr, Kayserberg) instead of Strasbourg. In nearby Mulhouse is located one of the most impressive car's museums in Europe. They collected a largest number of Bugatti cars in the world, under one roof , including Veyron. After that you may land in charming Basel and make some photos (if you want ) of (CH)(D)(F) tripont. On the way back don't miss to put your foot in beautiful medieval Shaffhausen, nearby Neuhausen with its waterfall (widest in Europe?) and German exclave Bussingen.

In Lignano there isn't so much in this period, in the nearby Bibione there's a famous spa with a big swimming pool open year round. To stay in hofburg's country I would recommend Catez, even if summer is better for it because there are many facilities outside.
