We discuss the consequences it has for classical physics if one includes the measurement process in the theory. The terms measurement and error thereof are explained and it is argued that every measurement can be reduced to a measurement of position and/or time. The statement that every measurement carries a finite inaccuracy implies that, also in classical mechanics, only probabilistic predictions are possible. Hence we find a similarity between classical and quantum physics that is mostly misconceived: By including measurements in the theory itself, one can view the former exactly like the latter as an indeterministic theory, as well as both theories can be formulated deterministicly without inlcuding measurements.
