Shaky House

We have moved into a new house. We are on a corner next to a 40 mph road down which a lot of heavy traffic cuts through. When I am in bed traffic starts around 7 a.m. and some of the heavier traffic shakes the house. I can feel it quite badly. Is this a problem ?? Or is everybody next to a busy road a bit shaky ??

Would be interested in some opinions Many thanks :cry:

We get this but only since the traffic calming humps have been in place :eek: and it's mainly with waggons that go over too fast, but, my house does have history of subsidence, so not sure if that's anything to do with it.
Thanks very much Libby Lou Lou. Hope I have no subsidence !

Woody. Thanks for giving me the link. Looks like I am not alone and puts my mind at rest a little.

Thanks to you both. :D
