German Speeding - info please

#1
I am awaiting paperwork to sign that I was the driver (I think I was) doing 17kph in a 7kph zone.

Does anyone know the likely penalty?

TIA

Something doesn't add up here. What paperwork are you waiting for? Did you get a ticket in the mail? Wasn't there a nice little mugshot of you at the wheel on it? Don't sign anything, first of all.

I got a 1 month ban for exceeding the speed limit on the slip road going onto the autobahn, I just came down the ramp and sped up to join the flow and there was plod-instant snapshot and hey ho, a trip to OC Admins office, coffee and biscuits were not an option. There was a fine too but I can't remember how much?

Ticket was sent to my boss via GTO (army white fleet vehicle), who is forwartding it to me, but tells me the photo is definitely me.

Apparently it is normal to have a 7kph limit in certain residential areas in Germany. I was driving beside the Stadtpark in Gutersloh.

Is it shite! 30kph in a residential zone is the normal. 7kph is about 4.5mph. Unenforceable. It would barely even register on a speedo.

7 kph Zone? No such animal. 10 Ks over the limit will get you a Warning Fee of € 15.00, via the CTOB, which is where I am right now. :D

Further to my last, the only area with a snail speed limit is a Spielstrasse which is appropriately signposted. The speed limit is officialy described as "Schritttempo" (walking pace).

I also looked it up. Didn't know that. :oops:
Now, this is the sign:

and the allowed speed is 4-7kmh 8O
