Hey retard, where do you think the Federal Money comes from the first place? Blue states are wealthier and their citizens provide more of their money to the federal government. Then the Federal government gives out that money to each state. However, the wealthy blue states are more self-reliant and thus don't take as much as the the red states, where that money goes to pay for your dumbass's food stamps while you rant about welfare queens on Indonesian fingerpainting forums.

This is called the "Bystander Effect" and is dangerous if nobody actually does anything. Make sure you take action yourself or instruct a specific individual to do so if you're ever in such a scenario. Even if it's dialling 000/999/911/112 yourself, it might save someone's life.

Why not just setup a HD camera, record to a local storage, and have some grunt go trough it to spot delivery drivers going against traffic flow?
And then close down any offending shops for 1-2 work days?
It would solve a lot of issues, with as lot less paperwork. Maybe even add a ticket fine to owner for failing to properly train his employees.
But i guess gotta do it the shitty way

>>1180115
How do they regulate it? Is it watts supplied to the motor, motor rating or top speed? There are creative ways around all of those.
>>
>>1180116
Probably 250w output, max speed is 25kmh anyways. It's a load of shit.

I want to do it but sinkin 1200 euros into something that will probably just get confiscated is pointless.

If it goes faster than 25kmh it needs a license plate and a rear view mirror (KEK). Basically becomes a shitty moped.

Are trains more energy efficient than cars for human transport, basically, which form of transport consumes more watts per km per passenger? Passenger trains certainly have a lot more weight per passenger especially when not fully loaded than cars but on the other hand from what i've heard those big diesel engines are really efficient compared to smaller ones found on cars.
And why do passenger train cars even have to be so goddamn heavy when they aren't transporting anything heavy?
I mean surely they would save a lot of fuel, ie. money, from not having to try and accelerate passenger cars that weigh more than a tank to 100km/h, is there any reason for a passenger car to weigh more than your usual bus?

>he Sm3 Pendolino (originally branded as Pendolino S220, and usually referred to simply as the Pendolino) is a class of high-speed body-tilting trains operated by VR Group. It is a member of the Pendolino train family; its design is based on the ETR 460. The first two trainsets were assembled in Finland by Rautaruukki-Transtech in the mid-1990s. The rest of the series of eighteen EMUs were built by FIAT Ferroviaria (later Alstom) between 2000 and 2006.

Its a high speed train, of course its big.
This isn't making 30-50km commuter runs and stopping at multiple suburban railway stations.
This things travels at 200kmh

Not bad, but if you're a beginner you should sell it, get your money back, and buy something without a headshock. They're harder to service. With a regular hardtail you have roughly 6 million choices for suspension forks

Yeah, great, and we pay for that shit with ridiculous taxes that are subsidizing the top 2% of people taking the fast train while everyone else gets a dick in their mouth.
As a eurofag, I'll say that HSR is a fucking SCOURGE on public railways that has done nothing but hurt regular passenger trains, you know, the ones people take to go to work every fucking day, not the ones they take to go to the beach once in a blue moon.
