Special use of public roads and squares for election advertising purposes Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.
The legitimacy for political advertising before the elections arises from the fundamental right of freedom of expression and from the guarantee of the participation of the parties in the formation of political wills, as laid down by the Basic Law. The placement of constitutionally compliant election advertising must be agreed between the parties and the municipal or state road construction authorities and allowed after examination.
Formal application. In particular, when election advertising is to take place on city/municipal roads, the procedural regulations of the road construction authorities of the municipal and municipal authorities apply. This applies accordingly in particular to the fees and processing periods.
Informal for the area of responsibility of the state enterprise Mobility.
The following conditions are in place: In principle, no election posters may be affixed to road signs Election advertising may not be placed above or at a significant height next to the traffic area, such as on the outside of the railings of bridges that cross roads Election advertising must not be set up in such a way that traffic signs are obscured or the necessary fields of vision are affected, e.g. at pedestrian crossings, junctions, visibility in narrow curves, etc. Since the interior surfaces of roundabouts (CIP) are generally not suitable to serve as sites for poster advertising at the elections and the large number of posters in a CIP can lead to visual impairments, distractions and thus traffic hazards, these may not be placed or placed there.
In the final phase of the election campaign (approximately 6 weeks before the scheduled election date), election advertising is permitted on the streets and must be removed immediately after the election.
