Mellrichstadt (dpa / lby) – At temperatures well above 30 degrees, around 1,000 motorcyclists demonstrated against impending road bans in the Lower Franconian district of Rhön-Grabfeld. The two-hour visit allowed them to travel a good 50 kilometers through ten villages in the district on Saturday afternoon, police said. 73 firefighters, 50 police officers and 13 rescuers were on duty. The tour went smoothly and without accidents thanks to “the good official preparation and the exemplary behavior of the participants in the meeting”.
For weeks there were rallies of motorcyclists across the country. The Federal Council wishes to reduce the noise of motorcycles in the excursion zones prized by the traffic ban.
