Austria >95db limit fine advice
on: September 17, 2021, 05:06:43 PM
Wondering if some of you know how best to deal with a fine I received during my trip in Austria last week (septí21), beside pay it.
Itís a fine for driving a pass that is limited to bikes to max 95db. And indeed there was a small sign before turning up the road, which I missed.

Was stopped like all other bikes. They checked via the license plate the registered db and for my 2015 it was 97db, meaning 2db too loud. Also says on the label near the head of the frame by the way.

Now I understood that it is against some European law and it is illegal what they do Ö it seems Ö any experience with this? How best to organise or how to appeal?
All advice is welcome.

Thanks in advance.
