Indeed. That doesn't make them automatically right.

It would be better to have own thread concerning fines and continue this interesting conversation there. At least we could also comparate the different fine systems around the world

I remember very well this road, I used to drive there often to meet a friend near Tiefenbach. But I have never visited Limburg & Weilburg unfortunately. In 2009 they were rebuilding the asphalt near Wetzlar so there was often traffic there, but in general is a good road!

This was the situation today on A9, near Munich, A99 East, and A8.


upload images

Pure madness, it seems the heat hit the people in the head, I saw 4 or 5 crashes today. On Autobahn, on Landstrasse, and even one on the entry ramp on the Autobahn, can't understand how that happened.

And I made the distance Ingolstadt - Prien instead of under 2 hours, in 4h30min, in the end this was the way I went http://goo.gl/maps/3Mra. That left me with little time to spend on the islands, and canceled my planned visit to Rosenheim on return .
On return in the evening, things cooled down, and 1h45min was the time needed this also taking a little Landstrasse detour http://goo.gl/maps/tK1c

And another interesting thing, they illuminated part of the Baustelle on A9

Can someone recommend a nice restaurant near the A3 Autobahn between Nürnberg and Regensburg? I want to meet some friends coming from Aschaffenburg itowards Vienna, and I was looking for a convenient place for me in Ingolstadt and for them. Thanks.

In this video you can see that there are no give-way signs by the on-ramps, whereas they can be found elsewhere in Germany.

How is it reguated? I don't know for sure, but I suppose some time ago every motorway entrance had a give-way sign.

Yeah, last Friday according to the Baustellen information of LBV-SH. However, I haven't read anything about it in the news and it's not uncommon in Germany that projects miss their deadlines.

Talking about priority on Autobahn ramps, is it true that traffic on Autobahn has to give way to vehicles coming from the ramp (since they come from the right hand direction)?

When I drive my motorhome I always have problems with cars entering and cutting me, when I have no free space on the left... This happens mostly in Bayern.

What's the correct rule?

Of course not. Traffic on the main carriage way on motorways has right of way at all times.

Here we go:
Quote:
Auszug aus der Straßenverkehrs-Ordnung (StVO):
§18 Autobahnen und Kraftfahrstraßen

(1) ...

(2) Auf Autobahnen darf nur an gekennzeichneten Anschlußstellen (Zeichen 330.1) eingefahren werden, auf Kraftfahrstraßen nur an Kreuzungen oder Einmündungen.

(3) Der Verkehr auf der durchgehenden Fahrbahn hat die Vorfahrt.
So the traffic on through-lines has priority.

I noticed that while in Germany too, and my Italian friend who lives there for many years warned me: "Keep in mind that on motorway ramps Germans merge almost without looking, they turn their indicators on and, ready or not the ones on the main carriageway, they merge".

It's just a different habit with respect to how Italians handle this situation.

Some days ago I was driving on SS 510 east of Iseo lake (1+1 but completely grade separated)... I was on the main carriageway and slowed down to allow a car on the entrance ramp to merge... I almost stopped and the guy still didn't merge... then I realized I was not in Germany any more...

I noticed the behavior too, and also the bolded thing happened to me to, but in Germany .
Although trucks tend not to let you merge, so you have to pay attention.
Anyway, I don't merge blindly, I blink and check my mirror carefully.
But when I drive on the road and see a car on the ramp, if it's ahead of me, I always think it could merge, so better be careful, break a little, I find it also a matter of civilization, it's not that bad.
Imagine if the road is very busy and nobody lets you in, you end up driving on the shoulder, or worse, if the acceleration lane doesn't have a shoulder and you are forced to brake and stop if you can't enter.

I agree, in fact I find the German habit better than the Italian one.
