Again and again people unload their garbage in Berlin’s forests. Old tires (for five you have to pay a fine of max. 800 euros), individual furniture (max. 500 euros each), washing machine (max. 1000 euros). A huge environmental mess. Are the fines high enough?

In the previous survey, we wanted to know if you still drive a taxi. This is now too expensive for 60 percent of the participants (2693). 26 percent (1173) like to drive a taxi. And at least 14 percent (649) still occasionally drive short distances.
