Ludwigsburg –

Sudden lane changes, over red drive, shots from Schreckschusswaffen or blockades and illegal car racing on highways: Recently had it to do the police in Ludwigsburg with a case that endangered lives: members of a wedding party blocked with at least four expensive cars on the highway 81 near Stuttgart the traffic and filmed the resulting traffic jam.

The traffic came to a complete standstill. Wedding guests leaned accordingly to film the traffic jam on Saturday afternoon from the car windows. A police spokesman said on Sunday: “The blocking of the highway is a dangerous traffic intervention and may also lead to a prison sentence.”

Defining about big cars

The police in Germany have time and again to do with sprawling celebrations of wedding parties and criminal-seeming behavior of the guests. “For those who do that, it’s the showcasing of cars that may not even belong to them.

It’s a way to show what you have and who you are, “says Michael Mertens, deputy federal chairman of the police union.

Young men defined themselves over thick cars and hit the strings. “We really have to put a stop to that and make it clear that this behavior can also lead to the withdrawal of the driver’s license,” Mertens emphasized.

According to the German Police Union (DPolG), such incidents do not occur frequently in Baden-Wrttemberg, but rather in the metropolitan areas of Berlin and the Ruhr area. “We know similar situations of motorcade at football matches. However, then in a different way, “said Deputy DPolG Federal Chairman, Ralf Kusterer.

In Essen, the police stopped last Thursday several cars of a wedding party. Two cars of a column had accelerated, braked and changed the tracks.

The two drivers aged 25 and 26 had to give their license according to the information, no one was injured. The groom, who drove the bridal car, could not prove the identity and was therefore brought to the guard.

Similar cases have occurred in several federal states in recent months. According to Kusterer, one can no longer speak of misdemeanors in many cases. “More specifically, it is the offense of coercion and a dangerous interference with road traffic.” (Dpa)
