INVALID VEHICLES AND TRAFFIC LAW

KRANKENFAHRZEUGE UND DAS VERKEHRSRECHT

THE SPECIAL REGULATIONS FOR USERS OF INVALID VEHICLES HAVE BEEN GREATLY ALTERED SINCE 1970. BY THE INCORPORATION OF INVALID VEHICLES IN THE GENERAL TRAFFIC LAW, THE PECULIARITIES OF INVALID CARRIAGES ARE NO LONGER TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT. IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CURRENT LAW, INVALID CARRIAGES ARE VEHICLES TO WHICH THE GENERAL TRAFFIC LAW APPLIES. THE LEGISLATORS RECOGNISE THAT INVALID CARRIAGES ARE ONLY RARELY ENCOUNTERED IN ROAD TRAFFIC. HOWEVER, IT IS STILL A FACT THAT INVALID CARRIAGES MAY USE FOOTWAYS AND ROAD MARGINS. THE DIFFICULTIES WHICH THE USERS OF INVALID CARRIAGES ENCOUNTER IN CROSSING PAVEMENTS, GETTING ON AND GETTING OFF FOOTPATHS, PARTICULARLY FROM THE LIGHTING POINT OF VIEW, ARE DISCUSSED. SUGGESTIONS ARE MADE FOR IMPROVEMENTS IN LIGHTING FACILITIES.
