With the new regulations on road traffic regulations, the Federal Ministry of Transport is also announcing new regulations on fines, which also came into force on April 28th. Consequently, the fines for violations of parking, stopping and for speeding are now higher. If the speed limit is exceeded, driving bans could occur earlier than in the past: in towns and cities when exceeding the limit by 21 km/h, out of town by 26 km/h. The unauthorized use of an emergency lane is now tracked and penalized in exactly the same way as the failure to create an emergency lane (up to € 320 and a month’s driving ban). There are also new fines for the so-called “auto-posing”: the creation of unnecessary noise and avoidable exhaust gas pollution as well as the unnecessary back and forth driving can be punished with up to 100 euros.
