Germany prohibits special number plate mounting

There are 48 million motor vehicles on Germany's roads. But it doesn't matter how the license plate is attached.

Like Denmark, Germany has banned the use of magnets.

At least for fixing license plates. With a change in the law, the Germans have banned the use of magnets, Velcro, suction cups or anything else that can be used for this kind of thing.

The area of the German traffic law was otherwise not precisely regulated until last year. But now it is 'the good fixation' that applies.

That's what Auto Bild writes.

According to the German media, it excludes the use of magnets and adhesive tapes with Velcro. The number plates must only be removable with mechanical help or 'a piece of special tool'.

This also applies to number plate frames, where the individual number plate must first be clicked in. The Germans, however, unlike the Danish police, are not so strict with enforcement.

The fine for being discovered with an incorrectly mounted number plate is a modest 10 euros, which corresponds to 75 Danish kroner. However, it can add up to large sums if you are stopped repeatedly in this way.

Here at home, since 2015, motorists have had to dismantle their cars in order to screw the number plates on, both front and back. The argument is that it will make it more difficult to steal Danish number plates.

However, such a theft does not require more than a screwdriver and 10 seconds of time. Still, the fine for getting around the screws is a whopping 1,000 kroner.
