The following two cases are covered by the StVO not regulated, as the 0.5 m rule for trains applies to the towing vehicle but not to trailers.
Although the loading does not violate StVO § 22 (3). Nevertheless, the way the load is loaded is objectionable. The far overhanging squared lumber severely limits the maneuverability of the vehicle combination. The lumber is a danger to other road users when the vehicle is heavily steered.
Stvo § 22 paragraph (4) deals with rearward overhang of loads. Sentence 1 and sentence 2 generally regulate the projections to be observed; it is said:
4) 1To the rear, the load may protrude up to 1.5 m, but up to 3 m in the case of transport over a distance of up to 100 km; the distances covered outside the scope of this regulation are not taken into account. 2vehicle or train including load must not be longer than 20.75 m.
Should the vehicle from Abb. 27 have an exemption permit, the requirements set out therein have not been met because the marking is not in accordance with the regulations.
Stvo § 22 paragraph (3) sentences 3 and 4 regulate the marking:
3if the outermost end of the load protrudes more than 1 m beyond the vehicle's rear reflectors to the rear, it shall be identified by at least
A bright red flag, not less than 30 x 30 cm, separated by a crossbar,
An equally large, bright red sign suspended pendulum-like across the direction of travel
3. Or a vertically mounted cylindrical body of the same color. Height with a diameter of at least 35 cm.
4these securing devices must not be placed higher than 1.5 m above the roadway. 5if necessary (§ 17 para. 1), at least one light with a red light must be installed in the same place, plus a red reflector no higher than 90 cm.
The § 17 StVO regulates the lighting. Paragraph (1) reads:
(1) During twilight, in darkness or when visibility otherwise requires it, use the prescribed lighting equipment. Lighting equipment must not be obscured or dirty.
This vehicle is not required to be marked as the cargo protrudes less than 1 m:
For vehicle users, please note the following: According to the standard, the body strength is determined with the doors closed. The values determined no longer apply when the doors are open; for this, the body strength is not known. If loading area restraints are to be used to secure the load, please remember that. This is not the case with the pictured vehicle, because it was only secured with tie-down lashings and the superstructure is not stressed.
