Holzkirchen – The Holzkirchen police carried out increased traffic checks in the office area on Monday. The focus was on e-bikes, pedelecs and bicycles.
On Monday (5 June), forces from the Holzkirchen police station carried out checks with a focus on e-bikes, pedelecs and bicycles. Checks were carried out at various points in the service area between 15 p.m. and 20 p.m. Among them were the well-known cycle routes around the Taubenberg.
Praise for two-wheelers
"In summary, it can be said that the two-wheelers behaved in a very exemplary manner," explains the police. There were no complaints in the area of the Taubenberg. "Without exception, the cyclists used the public cycle paths."
In the area of Holzkirchen, among other things, the wheel protection strip on Münchner Straße was monitored. There, two motorists were warned who parked their vehicles on the wheel protection lane.
"A total of six warnings were issued with requests for payment," the report said. Two cyclists received a warning for using the sidewalk. Furthermore, two pedestrians crossed Tölzerstrasse and Münchner Strasse at a red light.
Around 18:20 p.m., a 35-year-old man from Holzkirchen, who was using the sidewalk and cycle path with his e-skateboard, was checked at the Ladehof. "The officers found that the man was using a handheld remote control to steer his vehicle," police said. There is no road traffic permit for this type of skateboard. The vehicle was seized and criminal proceedings were initiated against the Holzkirchner for a violation of the Compulsory Insurance Act and the StVZO.
Police: "Numerous, informative and advisory discussions"
Overall, the controls met with a positive response from two-wheelers. The officers conducted "numerous, informative and advisory discussions" with the road users, according to the Holzkirchen police. This will repeat the focus in the coming weeks.
