Costly mistake when scraping the car window: which can lead to a high fine
Anyone who violates the public traffic ban commits an administrative offense punishable by a fine of 80 euros. On private property, however, a violation can be punished according to the State Immission Control Act (LImSchG) due to environmental pollution caused by the exhaust gases produced.
