Central fines (GT 313)

We punish traffic offences committed in 28 communities in the county of Ludwigsburg. However, the large county towns of Ludwigsburg, Bietigheim, Ditzingen, Kornwestheim, Remseck am Neckar and Vaihingen/Enz are responsible for administrative offences under the Highway Code (e.g. speeding).

The local traffic authorities Besigheim, Gerlingen, Korntal-Münchingen, Marbach am Neckar and Pleidelsheim punish traffic offences on their local roads themselves. For further information please contact us by phone.

Our field of activity also includes carrying out speed measurements. This monitoring of the flowing traffic is also important and necessary in the county of Ludwigsburg. The focus here is exclusively on road safety.

Don't forget: The punishment of so-called other fine matters is also one of our activities. These include, for example, unexcused absences from school, infringements of restaurant and trade laws, the fight against undeclared work and many more.

In the course of administrative reform, our scope of activity has been extended by the monitoring of social regulations in road traffic (driving personnel law), in particular the driving and rest times for truck and bus drivers. This includes both punishment of administrative offences detected during road checks by the Federal Office for Goods Traffic or the police and punishment of offences identified by us during company audits.
