Saarbrücken (ots) - On Friday, August 21.08.2020st, XNUMX, the specialized traffic monitoring groups of the traffic police carried out priority checks as part of the “traffic police action controls” concept. Particular attention was paid to the "poser and tuning scene" in Göttelborn, Landsweiler-Reden and Wiebelskirchen. The traffic police were supported by the Neunkirchen and Sulzbach police stations and by colleagues from neighboring Rhineland-Palatinate.
The reasons for the controls were complaints from residents about noise pollution, "unnecessary frenzy" and downright "littering" of the places popular with the "poser / tuning scene" in the aforementioned cities. The LPP carried out a comparable campaign on June 19.06.2020, XNUMX.
In the period from 18:00 p.m. to midnight, the emergency services checked a total of 24 vehicles and eight motorcycles and discovered numerous violations. The operating permit for a total of 00 vehicles had expired due to possibly prohibited technical changes. The driver (possibly also the vehicle owner) can expect a fine of between 55 and 18 euros. Three vehicles still had to be secured and towed on the spot. An expert should clarify whether the built-in parts are permitted or illegal changes. This causes additional costs of around 90 euros. In addition, vehicles without insurance and with an expired TÜV sticker were stopped.
A total of ten drivers were no longer allowed to drive. One driver did not have a driver's license, another had illegal narcotics with him, and three people were under the influence of alcohol. You have to expect ads, a fine of 500 euros and a month's driving ban.
The police security service carried out speed measurements at the same time. 41 drivers were too fast. A vehicle driver who was measured in a built-up area at a permitted 50 km / h at 81 km / h is expected to be fined.
The police advised that they should continue to investigate complaints from the population and that additional checks of this type should be carried out during the year.
