Drivers in Istanbul Attention! False Passing The Wrong Bridge


Watch out for drivers in Istanbul! Following the opening of the third bridge, vehicles that were above the 2 class or the wheelbase 3.20 were banned from the second bridge. However, citizens who are not aware of the ban continued to use the second bridge and the penalties followed.

After the opening of the third bridge of Istanbul, the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge in 2016, the restriction was introduced to the vehicles that could pass through the second bridge (Fatih Sultan Mehmet). According to this; The second bridge was forbidden to pass 3, 4 and 5 class vehicles and light commercial vehicles such as heavy tonnage trucks, intercity coaches. However, some exemptions were introduced for 2 class vehicles. This situation confused the citizens.


According to a news report; Law; Vehicles with 2 meters or axles are prohibited from passing through the second bridge. In other words, vehicles with an 3.20 meter or less may continue to cross the second bridge, while vehicles with a wheelbase are fined.

Many citizens who see these vehicles crossing the second bridge are using the second bridge with their light commercial or 3.20 meter axle vehicles. Citizens who were unaware of the punishment and that the penalties were notified after months, expressed their complaints from social media accounts, alar No warning signs and the issue has not been announced sufficiently. We continued to use the bridge we have been using for years, Biz he says.


Considering that the ban does not apply to its own vehicle, a citizen crossing the second bridge has said that the 3.45 Tl was cut to 800 Tl vehicle. 600 years after the penalty was sent to me.


Hundreds of vehicles such as Volkswagen Transporter, Mercedes Vito, Renault Trafic, Renault Master, Fiat Ducato, Fiat Maxi Doblo and Peugeot Partner Maxi are forbidden to cross the second bridge.
