doesn't even bother me that much anymore, I guess most people know that the "we're saving the environment" speech is just shit, and they're doing it to make more money off speeding fines.Today and for couple of days more, highway speed is limited to 90 km/h for all vehicles here (normally it's 120 km/h). Motorists driving quicker risk a fine of 120 euro. The weather has been very dry, cold and absoutely windstill for a couple of days and it seems the amount of "microdust" (produced in huge amounts by diesel engines without special filter) is reaching alarming levels, that is why the speed limit is put in place.
well, you got my vote alreadyWhy can't they just hire people to go out with micro-particle vacuums and suck up all of the dust, thus creating jobs, saving the environment, and let everyone drive at a reasonable speed? Really I should be in charge of the UN or something.
