Illegal car racing is a crime, because it endangers not only the drivers themselves, but also the lives of uninvolved persons. Those who take part risk a fine or imprisonment. A mere speeding, on the other hand, is a regulatory offence. Where are the limits – especially for drivers who are prosecuted for "racing against themselves"?

What is it about?

In march 2007, the new regulation on the marking of low-polluting vehicles came into force.

This ordinance is related to the establishment of environmental zones and regulates the marking of vehicles with so-called "fine dust stickers" according to defined pollutant groups. Only vehicles with the corresponding new sticker on the windshield are allowed to drive in designated environmental zones. Environmental zones can be restricted to individual pollutant groups. This applies not only to through traffic, but also to the vehicles of residents in environmental zones. The ordinance applies to all passenger cars and commercial vehicles, regardless of the type of drive (with internal combustion engines – gasoline, diesel or gas – and with electric drive). Vehicles registered abroad also require the sticker in order to be allowed to enter environmental zones. This label for low-emission vehicles is intended to help reduce fine dust pollution, especially in urban areas.

  • Negative SCHUFA entries can be caused, for example, by payment arrears. As a rule, this reduces the chances of obtaining another loan for construction financing.
  • If you want to get a home loan despite SCHUFA, you should be well informed in advance about the stored data and be prepared for inquiries from the bank. Often, negative entries can be plausibly explained or even deleted.

federal and state governments agreed on new pandemic measures at a digital corona summit. This includes, above all, contact restrictions for unvaccinated persons in private and public areas. As expected, 2G regulation is being introduced in the retail sector – across the board and independent of incidence. This excludes stores and businesses that are part of the basic supply, such as supermarkets and pharmacies. In the future, only persons who have been vaccinated twice against the coronavirus and have recovered from covid-19 will be allowed to enter all other retail outlets. This must control the operators.
