Speed camera - ©Can Stock Photo Inc. / AngelstormOnce again the police in Oberursel (Ordnungspolizei) have carried out speed checks on the road leading to the Feldberg, but this time (12th April, 2014) they chose a stretch between the Sandplacken and the Red Cross station.

Between 4.10pm and 6.10pm they measured the speed of 540 vehicles travelling uphill on a section of the road where a speed limit of 60km/h is in place.

33 of those measured were travelling too fast, with one motorcycle travelling at 121km/h. The driver faces a €240 fine, 4 points on their license, and a one month driving ban.

By comparison, the fasted car was “only” travelling at 83km/h, the driver of which can expect a €30 fine.
