Kassel (dpa / lhe) - parking offenders and speeding offenders brought additional income to the public coffers in Hesse last year.

Like many, the state's central fines office announced today in its 2020 annual balance sheet.

After years of increase, however, a downward bend is to be expected - because there were significantly fewer cars on the road due to the corona pandemic.

In addition, numerous proceedings had to be discontinued because the planned reform of the catalog of fines was stopped due to a formal error.

More than 1.34 million advertisements were received in 2019.

As a result of the regulatory offenses, 71.6 million euros flowed into the state budget that year.
