Hundreds of lorries turned back to Italy
The police in Austria have been strictly enforcing the vacation HGV traffic ban on motorways that go through the Inn Valley and the Brenner Pass (A12 and A13).
The ban was in place on Saturdays, from July 7 to August 25, between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. (for lorries coming from Germany to Italy the ban in Tirol applies between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.).
During checks on the border with Italy, the police prevented about 420 lorries from entering Tirol. On the Austrian-German border, from the start of July 16 lorries leaving Germany were denied entry.
