There is a speed camera on the side of the road – there is a free parking space directly in front of it. Are drivers allowed to park there? Or is it forbidden to park speed cameras? Which rules apply in Germany.

Some drivers have certainly thought about this "Trick 17": simply park the speed camera. Perhaps some road users have already made it easy. But is this allowed? Or do drivers have to keep a certain distance from speed traps when parking?

Finally, there is also a certain distance that must be maintained between speed cameras and traffic signs. But what are the rules for parking around speed traps?

Park directly in front of the speed camera: Are drivers allowed to park the speed trap?

The answer will probably surprise some road users. Because: The "parking of a speed camera" is "usually not punishable" and therefore allowed, explains "bussgeldkatalog.org". There is no minimum distance. Provided that the vehicle is not prohibited from parking when the speed camera is parked and that the applicable regulations for stopping and parking are observed. This was the result of a ruling by the Federal Court of Justice a few years ago. By the way: Bitzers, on the other hand, are actually allowed to stand in the parking ban – but only with permission.

There is therefore no threat of fines for parking speed cameras. echo24.de summarizes what motorists actually get points and fines for. In the case of more severe offences in road traffic, there is a risk of having a driver's licence revoked – a list shows which mistakes are the rag for motorists.

It's better not to take out your frustration on speed cameras: motorists face a prison sentence

If you are driving too fast and are flashed, you usually hope not to be too far above the tolerance limit. If you know that he was clearly fast, you should hold back and not take your frustration out on the speed trap. Tampering with or damaging a speed enforcement device is a criminal offense, explains "bussgeldkatalog.org".

So: additional parking is allowed, everything else can be expensive. In addition to a fine, depending on the severity of the offense, there is even a risk of imprisonment. However, one last trick could still help: "24auto.de" explains what excuses flashed drivers can use to avoid fines.

echo24.de summarises how high the tolerance limit is for speed cameras in Germany and examines the question of whether abrupt braking at speed cameras can save you from fines. At best, however, drivers should always strictly adhere to speed limits. If you're already driving a few kilometres per hour too much on the speedometer, you're risking your life.
