Tip from the police
As always, a tip from the police: especially now in the warm season, there are a lot of construction sites on the roads. For this purpose, the speed often has to be adjusted. If, for example, rolling grit has been applied, the tire loses traction. In addition, every car driver could also be concerned about the underbody protection of his car, which could be damaged at too high a speed.
In the district of kitzingen, too, several road users this year made the experience that it is not good to drive too fast in construction areas by parking their car in the ditch. So: always keep to the speed limit in construction zones – then nothing will happen.
