Unpleasant surprise on market Sunday: a ticket on the windshield wiper.
A woman from Dachau is angry about a ticket on the Sunday market in the old town.
Dachau – This is not how Ursula Forster imagined her short visit to the market in the old town last market Sunday.
When she got back to her car, she found a €25 ticket.
“That annoys me,” says the woman from Dachau.
Forster drove to the market where she likes to buy spices.
"You want to give the stand operators a little business, then you get punished like that," Forster scolds.
The business people in the old town complained about too little turnover, and then it's market Sunday, which attracts people, "then you're ripped off as a driver".
It specifically started up quite early to avoid the big run.
"But everything was tight, there was no more parking space on the Ludwig-Thoma-Wiese." So she was happy when a parked vehicle drove away in front of her on Jocherstrasse.
"Because there are people who are no longer so good on their feet," says Forster.
And emphasizes: "I speak for the older generation." When the other car drove away, she parked hers there.
"I definitely didn't block a driveway, certainly not a fire brigade driveway or a parking space for the disabled.
And no one was hindered either.”
Since it was Sunday, she didn't put in a parking disc because the time limit only applies on weekdays.
"Nevertheless, I and the whole row of cars there had a speeding ticket." Apart from the fact that Ursula Forster still doesn't quite know what she did wrong, she is annoyed by the strict traffic surveillance, especially on market Sunday.
In fact, parking in the old town is strictly regulated.
The traffic sign, which bears the number 290 in the road traffic regulations and is mounted at the entrance to the old town, points out the well-known 90-minute time limit on weekdays.
"But parking is only allowed in marked areas," explains Main Office Manager Josef Hermann from the city of Dachau.
Such marked areas are parking bays or marked parking spaces.
And in fact, the city "generally checks on market Sunday," as Hermann emphasizes.
Because on the market Sundays, additional stopping bans would be set up "to keep the access and exit of the Fierante and the rescue route free".
However, experience has shown that these places cannot be passed without traffic monitoring.
But everything is parked up to the access roads to the fire brigade.
That's why it's controlled, "and not to harass someone".
