Traffic light signals are placed too close to stop lines in Germany

#1 Post by PaZz_ » 07 Jan 2021 22:55

In Germany there's the requirement for traffic light signals to be placed at least 2,50 m away from stop lines to provide enough visibility for drivers on any affected lane. This is defined in the administrative regulations for German Road traffic regulation ("Straßenverkehrsordnung" (StVO)). In particular "VwV IV. zu § 37 Abs. 2 StVO".
This isn't a request for the perfect fulfillment of that law, but I want to point out the issue in visibility that comes with traffic lights being placed so close to the stop lines in the game.

Example:

Game version 1.39.2.4s
Stop line needs to be placed BEFORE semaphore lights ;[07/01/2021 23:05:41] (sec-0001-0005);-588.859;20.9606;-16298.5;-2.049;-0.581942
