Fine proceedings Road Freight Transport Act (GüKG)

The BAG is the authority responsible for fines for violations of road traffic regulations.

The branch offices of the Federal Office process these administrative offences on a decentralised basis.

The BAG is responsible for violations by non-resident affected parties in the following areas of law:

  • Road Freight Transport Act
    Passenger Transportation Act
    Driving Personnel Act
    Hazardous goods transport law
    Refuse transport law
    Professional driver qualification act

The BAG is responsible for violations by resident affected parties in the following areas of law:

  • Road Freight Transport Act
    Federal Statistics Act
    Professional driver qualification act

The findings are forwarded to the relevant State authorities if the BAG is not the responsible authority for fines.
If it is responsible, the BAG processes control reports from the road control service and the police, as well as notifications from other authorities. If necessary, additional investigations are carried out. Those affected can comment on the allegations. After the necessary investigations have been completed, a notice of fines is issued on a regular basis.

In the case of minor administrative offences, a warning with or without a warning fee will be issued or the proceedings will be terminated. An objection can be lodged against a notice of fines. The Cologne District Court is responsible for legal proceedings.
