Those crazy Germans! What you can loose. Weird things on the autobahn.

Because of the high speed on the autobahn with speeds from 100 km/h to unlimted speed any things on the surface can cause serious horrible accidents.

First videos shows how things on the autobahn are removed, caused no accidents.

Mölln. Auf der Suche nach seinem Gebiss ist gestern ein 47-jähriger Mann aus Ludwigslust (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern) zu Fuß über die A 24 bei Gudow geirrt. Er habe den oberen Teil seiner Zahnprothese während der Fahrt aus Versehen zusammen mit einem Pappbecher aus dem Auto geworfen, erklärte der Mann den verdutzten Polizisten. Die mehrere Tausend Euro teure Prothese habe er während der Fahrt herausgenommen und in den Becher gelegt, weil sie so gedrückt habe. Die Suche blieb erfolglos. Doppeltes Pech: Zu den Kosten für einen neuen Zahnersatz kommen noch 50 Euro Bußgeld für Parken und Laufen auf der Autobahn sowie zwei Punkte in Flensburg.

Ah. He lost his dentures (you could also say "false teeth.") That electronic translation is fascinatingly horrible, but still gives you enough to understand. You can use the term "bit" with horses - the part of the reins that go in the mouth. And the expression "chomping at the bit" means someone's anxious to get moving on something. When you said a man had lost his bit, I visualized him losing, um, a particular piece of his body....

Just for fun*, here's a better translation, based on both babblefish and the German (more on the German, really, than the babblefish, it's that bad!):

Mölln - A 47-year-old man from Ludwigslust (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern) wandered on foot along Autobahn 24 near Gudow yesterday looking for his dentures. The man explained to the bewildered police that while he was driving he'd thrown the upper part of his dentures out of the car by mistake, together with a paper cup. During the drive, he'd taken out the prosthesis, which cost several thousand euros, and put it into the cup because it was hurting him. The search was unsuccessful. Double penalty: to the cost of a new denture he'll have to add a 50-euro fine for parking and walking on the highway, as well as two points in Flensburg.

*I know, I have a strange idea of fun.

Wedding dress lost on the Autobahn - Causing a crash.

"
In Baden-Württemberg hat ein Autofahrer aus einer Dachbox seines PKW ein Brautkleid verloren. Zum Zeitpunkt des Verlustes befand sich der PKW auf der A5 und verursachte so einen Auffahrunfall. Der nachfolgende PKW musste eine Vollbremsung hinlegen und der dahinter kommende PKW fuhr auf.

Erst nach einem Kilometer hat der Brautkleidbesitzer bemerkt, was passiert war. Der Mann hat die Dachbox dann wieder verschlossen und fuhr weiter.

Die Polizei wurde von Augenzeugen benachrichtigt. Der Unfallverursacher wurde dann in der Nähe von Pforzheim gestoppt. Der entstandene Sachschaden bewegt sich in einer Höhe von 30.000 Euro.

As far as throwing out a paper cup is concerned, that's illegal, isn't it? It's certainly illegal here; when I'm on the road I just collect my trash in a bag and throw it out when I can. And I rarely see anyone throwing anything out of a moving car. I know everyone violates some driving rules - such as speed limits - but Americans have the stereotypes that Germans are very law-abiding and that Germany's very clean. Littering almost seems un-German to me. Which reminds me, besides the fine for parking and walking on the highway, and the "two points in Flensburg", why doesn't the article mention a penalty for littering? Or did I miss it?

It is, as well as here. Well, about 80 million people are living in germany. Not everybody of the 80 million is the same. Or let's say this, if assumed 70 million germans are clean, 10 million aren't. What i want to say is, that i think the majority of germans are clean. But you can see trash lying around beside the roads regulary. Our road workes have a lot to do, collecting, picking up trash, like for example McDonlads boxes. Maybe this results of the estimated 10 million unclean germans.

And like i said, yes it is illegal.

Sombody asked this on german yahoo. I hope you can understand what the users replied. Otherwise i try to translate for you

No kidding. A friend of mine works for the BC Forest Service. She sees that all too often in Forest Service sites when she's out enforcing camp fire restrictions.

The stuff I see most often on the side of the road is general household and construction junk. Stuff like bags of garbage, dirty diapers, scraps of lumber. I've had to swerve around a mattress, and a couple of years later drive over one (Adjacent lane was blocked by another vehicle). Strangest thing I saw at the side of a road: Used tampon applicator.

If I saw a mattress on the road, I'd assume it had fallen off rather than been deliberately dumped.

Yes, there are many things that could cause serious damage on German autobahns. Just look at all those Dutch drivers...

The Dutch are known for;

* driving slow on non-motorways
* tailgating
* throwing their cars to the left without checking mirrors properly

I'm always surprised to see how little following-distance the Dutch use on motorways, often less than 1 second (especially when they're behind a truck or slower vehicle). Sometimes they drive 5 cars in a row where 2 or 3 would be safe.

As real speeding in the Netherlands (like in Germany) is not something seen very much during the day, people often move to the fast lane in the smallest voids in traffic, which automatically leads to short following distances. If you leave a safe distance to the car in front of you, almost certainly somebody will move in that space, often even trucks.

i can't say that the dutchs are more dangerous than the average driver on the autobahn. sure there are idiots, but they are everywhere. At last most know the practice on the Autobahn. Keep right, pass left and slower cars to the right and middle lane. AND if they are on the left lane, they turn right so you can overtake you.

Last radio new i listend to: A Swasne Family was on an Autobahn. Haha, after duck family, finally a swane family. haha

What I've noticed when driving in the Netherlands in 2007 was that people tend to drive through the first seconds of red light on junctions. You know those moments when you don't know whether you will make it to the junction when its still green/yellow? I once didn't make it, and the traffic light turned red while I was still a meter or so before the line. The speed was good, so I didn't brake and just went through red (that happens sometimes). However, I was surprised to see that there were another couple of cars behind me who went through the junction too! And I saw this happening on quite a few occasions, in Amsterdam at least.

Yeah, people know which traffic lights have red-light cameras. Also; the green-phase is usually short, while the clearance time of an intersection is quite long, allowing people to run the red light without much danger of conflicting traffic. This is especially true for right-turn movements.
