South of the border it must be more expensive to be a danger to its traffic participants.
From 28. april, Germany has screwed up the financial penalty for a variety of offenses in the traffic, writes FDM.
Among other things, speeders should get used to dig extra deep in the pocket, just like that waiting for a month's driving ban if you exceed the maximum speed of 21 km/h or more in the German cities. This also applies to foreign drivers.
Are you taken in driving without a valid miljøzonekort, you must have 100 euro out of your pocket, where you could previously settle for 80 euro.

another change in the German traffic rules is that drivers now can be punished with a fine, if not they live up to the exact distances, when they overtake cyclists.
For example, it becomes a legal requirement that the city must keep a 1.5-metre distance from cyclists, while the legal gap between car and bike in the countryside will be 2 metres. On some routes there will even be banned to overtake the cyclists, and small scooters, which will be marked with a new road sign.
the Actions makes good sense, think FDM, bilejernes association in Denmark.
- One should remember that German cities do not have the same good cycling infrastructure as Danish. Many places have no bike paths. In other places, is the only sign up with a line on the roadway, says the legal consultant in the FDM, Dennis Long, on fdm.dk.
Also in Denmark it has been on the speech to introduce distance requirements for cyclists.
if you Ask the FDM, however, there is no reason to follow in the footsteps of our German neighbors.
- Although it is well intentioned, it is not something, FDM supports. On the one hand, according to the road traffic act already today, keep a sufficient distance when overtaking, and a precise distance requirements something near impossible for drivers to assess the speed and impossible for police to enforce, says Dennis Long.
