Please note that some of these images are scans from old 35mm slides in my archives, with resultant deterioration in colours and sharpness.

Polizei Niedersachsen

Adding an image that proves that policemen can be inconsiderate a**holes as well as anybody else – parked in the clearly marked disabled spaces at the Amtsgericht Goslar. While on a non-emergency errand. And with dozens of available parking spaces just twenty metres away (the parking lot is visible in the first image of the same car above). Thanks a lot!
