Because of an urgent request, an 81-year-old drove up to the Neufahrn police. In his case, however, it was a criminal offense.
Neufahrn - He couldn't wait any longer: An 81-year-old from Neufahrn showed up at the Neufahrn police station on Wednesday - with an urgent request. However, there was one detail that he had not considered.
As the Neufahrn police explained, the man had just served a one-month driving ban, which ended just that day. Therefore, the senior wanted to pick up his driver's license again. "In principle, this is possible, as long as no vehicle is moved on public road by the end of the day," explains Neufahrn's police chief Michael Ertl.

The problem: The man drove up to the police station at noon, around 13:30 p.m., with his car, although his driving ban was still valid until 24 p.m. As a result, the police officer who took care of the man could not help but initiate criminal proceedings against the man for driving despite a driving ban. According to Section 21 of the Road Traffic Act, this is a criminal offence, which must be prosecuted by the police, as Ertl explains. "Thus, the man will probably have to do without the use of the car for even longer."
