Frankfurt / Main (dpa / lhe) - In several Frankfurt train stations and on certain sections of the route in the city area, weapons are prohibited at the turn of the year. The Federal Police announced on Tuesday that no firearms and alarm guns, cutting, thrusting and stabbing weapons as well as knives and dangerous objects of all kinds should be taken along.
Compared to the two previous years, the Federal Police expects more rail passengers to travel to Frankfurt at the turn of the year. Experience has shown that people under the influence of alcohol have physical arguments even after trivial arguments. Weapons used in this context can therefore pose a particular risk. In the event of violations, in addition to procedures under the Weapons Act, there is a risk of penalties, evictions, house bans or future exclusions from rail traffic, it said.
