In section 2 we introduce and study the independence property for a sequence of two-dimensional random variables and by means of this property we define independent motion in section 3. Section 4 is mainly a survey of known results about the convergence of the spatial distribution of the point system as the time\$t\$→∞. In theorem 5.1 we show that the only distributions which are time-invariant under given reversible motion of non-degenerated type are the weighted Poisson ones. Lastly in section 6 we study a more general type of random motion where the position of a point after translation is a function\$f\$of its original position and its motion ability. We consider functions\$f\$which are monotone in the starting position. Limiting ourselves to the case when the point system initially is weighted Poisson distributed with independent motion abilities, we prove in theorem 6.1 that this is the case also after the translations, if and only if the function\$f\$is linear in the starting position. In the paper also some implications of our results to the theory of road traffic with free overtaking are given.
