The government lowered the national speed limit from 130 km/h to 100 km/h... Because of the nitrogen crisis. But do they take measures for the industry, shipping, aviation etc? No. Only cars. And they want to pass a law that all cars older then 15 years are being removed from the roads.

I'm furious :emoji35: I know we have to do something for the environment, but like I wrote earlier: they spare the industry, shipping and aviation. And most pollution is created by those industries.

Well, 12hrs of truckdriving later now it feels like home, and now we wont drive for a while lol

Some interesting things, the other day we had a flat out computer issue that claimed it was a issue with the breaking system, we managed to limp it to a Scania garage(where i bought non of the overpriced jackets or toys)

Today we drove inland and over somewhat of a mountain, 20 mins going up, same back down on twisty roads, then turned around and drove back. Salted so road surface was clear even with a thick layer of snow everywhere and -2c. Also a couple of cowgates where if ur on the power while going uphill you can spin and wreck the axles apparantly.

Now does driving in a place like that lead to alot of V8 rumbling? hell yes, i want to go back

Daily check they do here now takes me less than 2 minutes, oil and coolant in the front, tires, locks for the cargo box on the frame, cargo, lights
