What Expats should know about Traffic Laws in Germany

We have all dreaded that letter from some authority especially when living abroad. Generally people would be inclined to have a good relationship with authorities or at least try to stay out of trouble for various reasons. Traffic laws in Germany are quite strict, but something that foreigners living in Germany should know though, is that in case of speeding, fines or other related offenses, it does not necessary mean that those fines are valid and that is why it is always worth consulting with a traffic lawyer or an attorney who is specialised in traffic laws before paying. Due to the complexity of laws in general in Germany it is impossible for the layman to have an oversight of what to do in specifice cases.  In speeding offenses for example close to every second fine is invalid because of innacurate technical data from equipment used by traffic police. An experienced attorney for traffic laws in Berlin could have the fines quashed if there is proof the equipment used in the case was not measuring accurately. In conclusion it is definitely worth consulting a traffic lawyer in case of traffic offenses especially.
