Austria extends traffic ban during the summer holidays

The state government of Tyrol, Austria, has extended a provision that prohibits crossing on some of the state's roads.

It may become more difficult to get through Austria this summer. At least around the state of Tyrol.

The state government has decided to ban continuous traffic on the Fernpass route in the Reutte Nord and Vils area in both directions.

However, the state government exempts the so-called 'destination and local traffic' except for the ban. On the other hand, all forms of choir clothing are covered by the ban. This therefore also applies to motorcycles.

That's what Auto Motor und Sport writes.

In the past, it has been the case that the traffic ban applied from Thursday at 07.00 to Sunday at 19.00 from 1 August to 13 September.

But now the state government has decided to crack down already from 9 May. So the traffic ban is already a reality. In addition, the authorities have already said that they reserve the right to extend the ban.

For summer holidaymakers, this means longer routes and therefore longer travel times. The Austrian ban has already received criticism from the Swiss 'International Road Transport Union (IRU)', which believes that the ban is a breach of the EU's principle of free movement.

Much apropos of the EU, there are indications that the union's ban on new diesel and petrol cars in 2035 is not so rock-solid. In any case, several parties are going to the upcoming EU elections with a demand to abolish the ban. Read more about it here .
