Bitte beachten Sie - Motorrad Beschränkungen im Bezirk Imst & Reutte

Das Tiroler Oberland bietet gerade für Motorrad Begeisterte ein vielfältiges Angebot und zahlreiche imposante und grenzübergreifende Touren.  Um der Lärmbelastung für die heimische Bevölkerung ein wenig entgegenzuwirken, hat kürzlich das Land Tirol auf einen kleinen Teil der Strecken im Bezirk Imst und Reutte Fahrverbote verordnet. Diese betreffen besonders laute Motorräder, die über 95 dBA Standgeräusch aufweisen. Von den Fahrverboten sind nur rund 5,6% des gesamten Landesstraßennetzes in Tirol betroffen. Demnach darf man mit einem Motorrad, welches im Hinblick auf das genehmigte Standgeräusch den ab 10. Juni 2020 geltenden Fahrverboten unterliegt, weiterhin mehr als 94% der Landesstraßen in Tirol befahren. Von diesem Fahrverbot sind nur ca. 7% der zugelassenen Fahrzeuge betroffen. Diese Beschränkungen gelten für den Zeitraum von 15. April bis 31. Oktober jeden Jahres. Weitere Informationen zum Fahrverbot und welche Strecken davon betroffen sind, finden Sie unter:
