Police banned gold BMW X5 and evacuated carOctober 16, 2019
The German police decided that the car interferes with the rest of the traffic
The German police in Dusseldorf forbade the driver to continue driving on the roads of the city and forced him to park the car, as the BMW X5 covered in gold film was too shiny and dazzled other traffic participants in the sun.
According to police, the car literally “glowed” in the sun, and it was hard to look at it. In the picture of the crossover that they made to draw up the protocol, their shape is reflected in the side doors as in a mirror. At the same time, the 30-year-old owner did not expect to be stopped for breaking the rules, and they temporarily “confiscated” the car, because he was sure that he did not break any rules.
Harold Schmitke, Director General of the German Tuners Association, told T-online.de that the cost of such pasting in good service costs from 2,500 to 3,000 euros. He added that the question of whether such a car can move on roads should be decided by an expert. However, if the car distracts other drivers, then this is unacceptable and the owner must be obliged to remove the film.
This is not the first time for Germany – in April Hamburg police stopped the driver on a gold Porsche and demanded to remove the film, because it was also too bright. The man, however, ignored the order, and after a while he was stopped again. Then the authorities had to resort to a consultation of specialists who decided that the car nevertheless was unacceptably brightly shiny and in this form could not drive on roads.
