Association criticizes the discrimination of the motorcyclist

The Federation of motorcyclists (BVDM) see traffic noise as a Problem - but it demands that the solution to the problem, all vehicles are included. "What we reject and can't understand, is the one-sided focus on the subject of noise on the motorcycles," said Chairman Michael Lenzen.

"Here we see clearly a discrimination against motorcycle riders." It was absurd to shear more than four million motorcyclists because of the misconduct of a minority over a comb. "In the case of car drivers, for instance in the case of the illegal street racing in cities, is also targeted against the perpetrators. Here the same law must apply to everyone.“

The motorcycle traffic here is the rest of the people there: tourists who want to relax and stay residents who have decided on the country in rest bite claims.

"And yet to times in which one has a special claim on the weekend, especially on Sunday." If the limit solves the Problem, really, remains to be seen. "Because if as a result, the number of motorcycles reduces on the streets, can not you say, probably more," said Schreckenberg.

expert: the noise must be different

The expert are considered, in addition to the noise limits of the vehicle itself is another need: The motorcycles, the resulting noise pollution would have the effect of which will be recorded. Because the motorcycle noise will be a burden, especially on weekends in the summer the people, not the previously recorded average annual value of meaningful, said Schreckenberg.

The research show that the noise level of a "summer of Sundays" is to predict the nuisance for the local residents is significantly better than the year level. Could be guided to the measurement of aircraft noise: This will be determined instead of the annual average, already now, a continuous sound level from aircraft movements in the summer months, so the months with the most air traffic.
