Hi guys, I have a question. In the first day of the curfew (12th December) I was not aware about the new restriction rules and I was shopping around 21:00 o'clock at a Supermarket which was still open. At the exit the police was waiting for us and took our identity data. I am in Baden-Württemberg. Now I received an "Anhörung im Bußgeldverfahren" as I was breaking the corona curfew. For me this seems quite unfair.They published the new rules one day before at 21:38 PM.How could they expect that everyone will be aware instantly. Even the store was not aware as they left it open. Also in the document with the new rules, in the footer is mentioned "1 Nichtamtliche konsolidierte Fassung nach Inkrafttreten der Verordnung der Landesregierung zur Änderung der Corona-Verordnung vom 11. Dezember 2020 (notverkündet gemäß § 4 des Verkündungsgesetzes)." If I translate it correctly it means it is kind of unofficial. Should I answer to the form they sent me, or I just incriminate myself more. I am really annoyed as this is unfair, you cannot change rules with less than 24 hours ,and then also go and hunt people, instead of just informing them and give them a warning in the worst case. To get a lawyer I think it will be more expensive than the fine ? Any ideas, advices ? Thanks.
Hi, I just found out today that a fine or a DEBT! has been issued to my name and my employer has received a letter about it, amounting to 680EUR from the fire department. I do not know why I am fined, I never started any fire and never got in any trouble with the fire department. I have moved a lot in the last two year in Germany so maybe I missed the so called reminders of any unknown payment I was being billed by the Feuerwher. My problem is I do not speak german, and my employer is not being very helpful. How do I even find out what this debt is related to? To whom do I owe this amount and why? What did I do? My employer is not sharing the letter with and is saying they will deduct the amount from my salary. This is a big amount and is stressing me out, please help! I have public health insurance, I did call an ambulance in 2018 that took me to the hospital but I am not sure I got any letter to pay for any bill apart from 10 euros. I live in a student dorm and there was a smoke alarm 3 months ago that kept ringing for 1 hour but I did not cause any fire neither do I know why it was triggered. I did not receive ANY such letters for any such bill and now my employer has received a debt letter! This is very embarrassing.
tl;dr; first Guys, I messed up. I parked somewhere where I should not have. The owner uses the Park&Collect app, took the evidence, and now I received the bill for 147€. I am guilty, I exactly know when and where this happened, and I am ready to pay the settlement. I understand that this is an alternative dispute resolution (wiki). The property owner gets 40€ the rest is for the company behind it. Is there a chance that he may still require more money when I pay the settlement? Using e.g. a different app? I am not trying to get off the hook. I just want to make sure that the owner can't use five different apps where every single one sends me a bill for 150€. A longer (but slightly entertaining) story: I built a new desktop PC for my elderly father as a Christmas gift. Due to the pandemic, I decided to ship it to him along with my spare LCD screens. The package was over 30Kg. I had to change the packaging about three times to get under the GLS limit (31.5Kg). I rushed to the nearest GLS Paketshop on 18th of December. Since the package was difficult to carry I wanted to park as close to the door as possible. I turned on the hazard light to show that I am around. There was room for one compact car but not for my station wagon. The rear axle was already on the border. A part of the car slightly blocked the exit from someone's house. At the same time there was a guy leaving the backyard and he could easily pass by. I knew that I exceeded but the guy made it. We even nodded to each other so everything was all right. I took the beefy package and brought it to the GLS Paketshop. On the way back there was already a guy in Cayenne (what a silly car) waiting for me to move away. I went straight to him and apologized as much as I can. He was extremely mean (a guy with golden Schmuck like disco owners used to have in 90'). I was not surprised. I would be also mean if I had to drive white Cayenne. I guess most of you know how much time it takes to drop off a package. It may have been 3 minutes, probably less. Even though the guy was a grotesque resemblance of Al Pacino he was right and I was wrong. I also somehow understand that if this happens to him 4 times a week it sucks. Driving a tractor is not convenient in the city and when somebody blocks the entrance? That ruins the day ;-) #Stay healthy & park well. Korla
