Heinz steidle is a mobile senior: the 78-year-old drives a car almost every day, among other things to take his wife lieselotte to the doctor or for treatment. "My wife suffers from disc problems", tells the former head of the district court in bad kissingen. He is all the more annoyed by the potholes and depressions along the city ring road: for his wife, "driving along these stretches is always painful". In addition to damage to vehicles, steidle also thinks of others: "the lamb load on residents is unacceptable, especially on the westring." That’s why he wrote to the state building department. But this points – at least in part – to the city. A back and forth.
"The state of construction of the federal and state highways in the area of the city of bad kissingen has been catastrophically bad for years", wrote steidle to schweinfurt. He specifically criticizes the condition of the westring from the town sign to the garitz intersection, the sunken caps on the ostring, the road surface at the erhardstrabe and kapellenstrabe junctions, and the bike lanes along the east and north rings. In steidle’s opinion, the building authority cannot simply refer to upcoming tree removals at the garitz intersection, for example, or the sewer construction in erhardstrabe: "that cannot justify the failure to repair this serious damage, which also affects traffic safety."
