Holiday driving bans

By ordinance of 13 May 1985, an annually recurring holiday ban was introduced in the period from 1 July to 31 August for vehicles with a permissible total weight from 7.5 tons, as well as for truck-trailer combinations regardless of weight. This holiday driving ban applies on Saturdays from 07:00 to 20:00 on certain sections of the motorways and some Bundesstraßen (national highways). Here, too, an exception applies for those categories of transport mentioned under the exceptions to the driving ban on Sundays and public holidays.

Under certain conditions and then only in very urgent cases, an exemption from the driving ban is granted.

Hazardous Substances

The provisions of the ADR (Accord europäen relatif au transport international de marchandise Dangereuse par Route) apply to the transport of dangerous goods. A number of regulations in the German Gefahrgut Verordnung Straße und Eisenbahn (GGVSE) also apply to cross-border road transport of dangerous goods to, from and through Germany by foreign companies.

A special permit is often required for the transport of dangerous goods. This special permit must be obtained for transport to Germany at the Straßenverkehrsbehörde, in whose district the border crossing point is located. For transport from Germany, the permit must be obtained from the Behörde in whose district the place of loading is located.

Transport of these substances by road is only possible if the transport distance in Germany is less than 200 kilometers. For longer distances, transport by rail or water must be completed, unless the rail / water route is twice as long.
