It is not enough to winterize the car.
Some violations can get really expensive in winter.
Excessive speed also costs more.
Isn't that great: Drivers already have to dig deep into their pockets because of rising petrol prices.
According to echo24.de, the search for the cheapest gas station is definitely worthwhile.
But in winter it can get really expensive if you ignore some of the pitfalls.
Because in the cold season, certain fines of up to 180 euros can be issued.
Fines in winter: What drivers should pay attention to urgently
Should snow actually come in Baden-Württemberg, drivers should make sure before setting off that the number plate is not covered with white flakes.
Because there can already be a penalty of five euros.
If you want to take the risk because you think "not so wild" let me tell you;
from here the penalties become more expensive.
Anyone who gets up too late in the morning and forgets to schedule time to scrape the windshield could come up with the idea of scraping just a section instead of the whole windshield.
And here we go.
Better not: There is a risk of a fine of ten euros.
If you want to avoid this and are already in the process of scratching, you should also invest the two minutes to sweep any snow off the car roof.
It could be expensive: 25 euros for driving with a snow-covered car roof.
Driving with winter tires is a question of safety.
If you are caught with summer tires, you can be asked to pay a lot.
This mistake costs a fine of up to 60 euros.
What few people know: Driving too fast when it snows is even more expensive than it is now anyway.
25 kilometers per hour too much will be punished with a fine of 80 euros.
