Re: übertretungsanzeige - Ticket for driving in an area

Yes it was just after 00:00.

I am familiar with the area just south of Langstrasse, where they actually block the road for the cars not to pass. But I completely missed that sign in the street where I got the ticket

They no longer have barriers as they said it was too costly. Now it is just signs.
Because people did not respect them and police patrol was too costly as well they now have a movable camera system which they randomly put at some of the entry points. (See also link by YuropFlyer).

Just pay the CHF 100 fine and you are fine. Incident will be registered nowhere.
Contest the fine and you most likely will lose (unless you have good resan tio haven drivven on that road). If you contest and lose it will be registered.

I'd pay up.. you don't really have much choice.
Thanks for that one.
After decades of barriers I probably would have driven through as well (Jewish quarter, Niederdorf) thinking they lifted the "Nachtfahrverbot". ROFL.

Pitty actually, in the old days you could charm the porter in Niederdorf sometimes. But I guess those days were long gone anyway.

Re: übertretungsanzeige - Ticket for driving in an area

Very familiar in that area, and no doubt OP missed the sign. He is one of hundreds who got fined lately which also has been widely covered by the news/papers. (Over 300 already in the first weekend..)

The camera indeed does not flash (It reads every car passing) and is tbh also very easily to spot.

Uhm, not everything needs a flash? You drove on a road where cars weren´t allowed. Unfortunately a fine for you
Yup, same happen to me in Granada Spain, I was using a GPS that was able to tell me where the speed cameras were, but not these kind of cameras, for this the best is use Google Maps, will take you through the streets that you can go with no problems...

Re: übertretungsanzeige - Ticket for driving in an area

What's the reason for the 22-03 limit?

Noise reduction in a residential area? If so, seems odd that it finishes at 3, rather than say 5 or 6.

Kicking out time-window for bars and clubs but after 3am is when the Migros/Coop vans and lorries start arriving to restock, so they need to be able to clatter about? Just a guess.

After 3 it is calming down on traffic, also hardly anyone still is looking for a parking space after 3 to go out in the area.

They don't mind traffic, they mind lots of traffic.

It should also exist some kind of law for the big trains as well.... they should slow down when passing through the towns...
