Dear IFRTT Forum subscriber, 

nights are rapidly getting shorter at the Northern latitudes. I visited Denmark 
recently and had the opportunity to read Danish newspapers. Some newspapers have 
daily recommendations for "lights on" for bicycles. For example, in Copenhagen 
bicycle lights are recommend from 9.27 tonight to 5.32 tomorrow morning. Besides 
indicating local sunset and sunrise, an initiative for safety and energy 
conservation. 

Denmark is a country of great cyclists and of great people like the author Hans 
Christian Andersen and physicists Niels Bohr and Ole Roemer, the first to 
accurately measure the speed of light. On the wall of his old cathedral school 
of Aarhus, Denmarks second largest city, it says poetically "han maalte lysets 
toeven" (he measured the hesitation of light). 

The IFRTT vice president for Europe, Bernard Jacob of Laboratoire Central des 
Ponts et Chaussées has taken on the enormous task of heading the organization 
of the Heavy Vehicle Conference as a joint conference of the 10th symposium of 
Heavy Vehicle Transport Technology and the 5th International Conference on 
Weigh-In-Motion, May 19th to 22nd 2008 in Paris. 

I strongly urge you to register now at http://hvparis2008.free.fr and get ready 
preparing your contributions. 

We have invited Max Lay, author of the excellent book "Ways of the World" to 
give a plenary presentation and we have also invited John Berry of the European 
Commission to give an overview, the transport sector is among the hottest topics 
on the European political arena.  

David Cebon of Cambridge University chairs the HVTT10 scientific committee. 

Judging from the very good Forum internet exchange of views on road wear that 
we had earlier this year a HVTT session on that subject seems a like good idea. 
Another area of interest should be fuel consumption (and carbon dioxide generation) 
as function of vehicle design and infrastructure conditions such as road surface 
irregularities and congestion. And of course updates on different PBS initiatives. 
But it is up to you! 

Drive safely, 

Anders Lundström, IFRTT president
