For many years now, clusters of cars have been parked every Wednesday in front of the Hermitage Castle in Dyrehaven north of Copenhagen. Often, it is forest kindergarten buses, travel companies and associations of vintage cars that make their way past the old castle.
But that has never been the intention.
The parking scheme was introduced to give disabled and handicapped people the opportunity to drive into the Deer Park and up to the castle. But this is rarely the case, and now the Danish Nature Agency has had enough.
Therefore, from 1 February, you may risk receiving a fine of up to DKK 1,500 if you still enter the area, unless the car is equipped with a blue handicap sign. .
The new scheme must ensure that traffic on Wednesdays will be much less and that it will be easier to get parking in front of the castle for those who need it. And if you do not follow the new rule, it will be reported to the police, who can issue a fine.
“We are aware that many people who tend to use the scheme are upset by the restriction, but we believe it is the only objective way to solve a problem that has grown out of proportion in recent years, relative to that the scheme was just introduced to accommodate disabled people who are not able to enter the Deer Park themselves, «says forester at the Danish Nature Agency Torben Christiansen to Berlingske and continues:
»Large audience surveys show that forest visitors are generally bored of meeting motor vehicles on their walk in the woods. And it has been included in the decision basis to limit motoring in Dyrehaven, so that in future it will be part of the experience during the visit that you meet fewer motor vehicles when restrictions are introduced, and only driving with a disability sign and disabled buses is allowed, “he says .
Several areas are plagued
It is not only Dyrehaven that has had a problem with increasing traffic in nature areas.
In several forests in North Zealand, it has been necessary to block natural roads, as motorists have driven onto the forest roads to get to accommodation and campfire sites more easily. This applies to Gribskov, Teglstrup Hegn in Elsinore and Tisvilde Hegn, where there have been problems with the nature-disturbing motorists. This is what forester Tim Falck Weber from the Danish Nature Agency North Zealand says.
“It simply came to our notice then. There is also a reason why many complain about car traffic, because it is something that people see as one of the biggest annoyances when they walk in the woods – in addition to stray dogs – which otherwise triggers a fine of 2,000 kroner, He says TV 2 Lorry.
And the people of the Danish Nature Agency are not late to take note of it and pass the information on to the police as soon as they observe a vehicle that does not have a legal errand.
Therefore, Tim Falck Weber will encourage people to keep an eye on the signs that have been put up so that one does not break the law and risk a fine.
