In some cases, the vehicles are said to have overtaken in the emergency lane and endangered other road users by tailgating and dangerous driving manoeuvres. Traffic police patrol cars positioned themselves at the Freiburg-Nord junction and were able to stop and control two of the three vehicles. The 33- and 35-year-old drivers were forbidden to continue driving and their driving licenses were confiscated.
