Noise displays are intended to encourage motorcyclists in Hesse to be more considerate


With noise displays on popular motorcycle routes in Hesse, bikers should be encouraged to be considerate of residents. In response to a parliamentary request from the SPD parliamentary group, the Ministry of Economic Affairs in Wiesbaden announced that the displays should only be in operation temporarily for a few weeks or months so that the eleven locations so far do not become accustomed. They could then move to a different location.

The display boards are intended, in particular, to encourage motorcyclists on busy routes to adapt their driving style and to be considerate by indicating “slower” or “quieter”. The state government is spending around 200,000 euros on the displays.

The first eleven locations are in Frankfurt, in Schmitten and Bad Schwalbach im Taunus, in Mainhausen in the Offenbach district, in Schotten in the Vogelsberg district, in Laubach in the Gießen district, in Mossautal and Lindenfels in the Odenwald, in Diemelsee and Waldeck in the Waldeck-Frankenberg district as well in Bischoffen in the Lahn-Dill district.
