Germany: Traffic Police and Chemical Waste. The German Traffic Police stop and check heavy-goods vehicles using a risk-based targeting approach and regularly found leaking barrels of battery acid or other hazardous substances. Although the waste is temporarily confiscated to address the immediate danger, the case reports are rarely accepted for prosecution by criminal police units or the public prosecutor agency because, as noted by EnviCrimeNet, the incident is not a priority within those institutions.
