ADAC – Together against motorcycle noise

“Quietly arrives” campaign in the Donnersberg district: signs appeal for consideration

In the municipality of Dannenfels, two large signs were erected on state road 386 near Bastenhaus with which the Donnersbergkreis is taking part in an ADAC “Quietly arrives” campaign, which aims to encourage motorcyclists to drive more considerately. The ADAC provides the motifs for the signs.

The initiative against motorcycle noise is supported and accompanied by a working group that deals with the problem of noise pollution locally, by the Donnersberg district, the Donnersberg traffic police, the state mobility agency and two state ministries. Everyone involved wants to create greater awareness of the problem among motorcyclists so that their hobby does not become a burden for others.

“Quiet arrives” – driving fun without noise

The ADAC developed the signs to make bikers aware of the need to be considerate of residents affected by noise: “Most bikers are considerate when driving and pay attention to low speeds when driving through town. But unfortunately not all of them,” explains Dr. Volker Kettenring, board member for traffic and technology at ADAC Pfalz, “that’s why with the “Quietly Arrives” to motorcyclists to show consideration for residents and other road users.”

Kettenring speaks out against collective punishments: “It is better to have targeted controls and punish violations, for example by the few bikers who cause noise
exhaust systems The signs at Bastenhaus are the first in the Palatinate. However, other communities have already expressed interest in the campaign.
