The city of Albstadt has provided a comprehensive set of numbers: it provides information on how often Albstadt drivers flash in 2020 and 2021.

Albstadt – In 203 days – eight more than a year ago – Radarrent took speed measurements on behalf of the city of 2021. This was the year the revised fines catalog came into effect on November 9 and the first full year that fixed-metering systems were put into operation at Ebingertalstraße and Schillerstraße. The stationary system at Neuweilerstraße has been converted to laser technology. Now this should happen with the system at Berliner Straße, which will measure red light and speed violations in the future. The city allocated 130 thousand euros in the budget.



291,335 vehicles registered

Michaela Meyer, Head of the Regulatory Office, has now submitted the measurement figures from 2020 and 2021 to the Municipal Council. Accordingly, a total of 291,335 vehicles were registered in 635 measurements in 2020, of which 56,384 at 30 km / h and 233,935 in 50 km / h areas, and the rest in 80 areas. Four per cent of drivers did not adhere to the speed limit – 44 per cent in 30 km/h zones and 56 per cent in 50 km/h zones. 0.18 percent were in 80 districts. The city was fined 232 thousand euros for speeding violations.

The complaint rate was higher in schools and kindergartens: 5.6 percent of 36,487 registered vehicles. The complaint rate is highest at night between 7.30 pm and 1 am, in eight percent of the 16,522 vehicles registered, between 10 pm and 1 am at the measurement point on Laufener Straße in Luttlingen, where 10 percent of the vehicles were too fast, and on the Ebingertalstraße in Lautlingen, where a good 11 percent were pretty fast. Berliner Strasse ranks first with 20 percent of speeding violations.

Income from fines 81,000 euros

In 2021, measurements were made 747 times in the same area, namely Albstadt and Bitz – in 55 percent of cases at 30 km/h and 45 percent in 50 km/h areas. Of the 349,324 vehicles registered, 4.7 percent were extremely fast, of which 53 percent were on 30 km/h roads and 47.3 percent were on 50 km/h roads. This time, too, the rate was higher in schools and kindergartens: 6.8 percent.

For measurements between 7:30 p.m. and 1 a.m. in 2021 it was 6.4 percent, and for measurements between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m. on Laufener Strasse it was 11.3 percent and in Berliner Strasse 19.5 percent.




What numbers have been in a semi-fixed facility that has been in the same location for seven days since 2020? Here the complaint rate was 1.4 percent in 2020 and 0.3 percent in 2021, with both years costs 28 thousand euros and revenue from fines 81 thousand euros.

New facility in Schillerstrasse

Neuweilerstraße’s complaint rate is quite low – 0.25 percent of the 1.73 million cars registered in 2020, in which the city received €75,000 in fines, and 0.4 percent of the 1.1 million cars registered in 2021, which brings it to €73,000 in income.

In 2020 – since April – it has earned €16,500 from the system at Schillerstrasse, which 0.1 per cent of the million vehicles have passed very quickly. In 2021, with slightly more traffic, complaint rate was high; The city collected 17,500 euros from speeding drivers.

On Ebingertalstraße, the complaint rate was 0.21 of 600,985 cars from October through the end of 2020 and 0.24 per cent of 3.1 million cars in 2021. The city raised 21,500 euros in 2020 and 128,000 euros the following year.

Almost back to the peak of 2017

However, the bar graphs in the meeting form show that the number of vehicles complained about in 2021 – after a year’s decline of two coronavirus lockdowns – nearly reached its highest level in 2017 again. At 4.7 percent overall, the rate was the third-highest since 2010.

Matthias Strähler (CDU) emphasized that the focus of control should be on black spots from accidents and where problems arise for residents, such as noise. For him, checking schools and kindergartens during the holidays has a “taste of theft”.
