RoadwaysEdit

Neukirchen is located on State Road 2139. In 2017, a Bavaria-wide pilot project to measure the volume of motorcycles was carried out by the Bavarian Police Department. Following the successful completion of the pilot project, the Bavarian Ministry of the Interior decided at the beginning of 2018 to allow the use of noise displays nationwide. Neukirchen, in cooperation with the neighboring municipality of St. Englmar and initiated by council member Matthias Wallner, is taking on a pioneering role in Bavaria in the fight against motorcycle noise.[6]
