Does Helene Fischer risk serious accidents in traffic with her competition? Some fans of the pop singer fear that.
Dortmund – Helene Fischer (37) released her new album “Rausch” in mid-October. The record is – how could it be otherwise for an album by Helene Fischer – a complete success. In Germany, Austria and Switzerland, “Rausch” promptly reached number 1 on the album charts. The pop singer wants to thank her fans with a competition. But that is tough, knows RUHR24 *.
Helene Fischer is giving away fan boxes – participating in the competition is not without its dangers
Helene Fischer is giving away a total of ten signed fan boxes from her new album. However, if you want to be in the pot, you have to meet a condition of participation that is not entirely harmless. The competition takes place in cooperation with Amazon Music. The online retailer is sending a total of 20 trucks through Germany that advertise the new album with a large photo.
To win a signed fan box, fans have to discover one of these trucks on Germany’s streets and share a photo of it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag “#AmazonMusicRausch”. But as fans of Helene Fischer note on Facebook, it is not necessarily legal and also not necessarily harmless to take a photo of a truck in traffic.
“Risk of accident” – fans criticize Helene Fischer’s competition
A user apparently had the chance to dust off one of the coveted signed fan boxes. But she behaved in an exemplary manner on the autobahn. “Great. Today I overtook one on the A1. Unfortunately, it was not possible to take a photo while driving, ”she writes. But the pop singer’s Facebook fans apparently do not expect everyone to behave in such a way that is law-abiding (more celebrity news * at RUHR24).

Another user fears that something completely different is waiting for the photographer instead of the fan box. “Taking pictures while driving, great idea. Not everyone has a passenger. Well, with luck there will be a point in Flensburg and a fine, ”she writes. “I don’t think that’s okay. Please do not use a cell phone while driving. Risk of accident, ”adds another.
In fact, using a cell phone while driving is sanctioned in accordance with the catalog of fines * with a fine of 100 euros and one point in Flensburg. If there is also a risk, there is a risk of 150 euros fine, two points in Flensburg and a month’s driving ban. In the event of property damage resulting from this, the fine increases by a further 50 euros.
Helene Fischer sends 20 trucks with album advertising for competition through Germany
It is not known whether there have already been such offenses or even accidents in connection with Helene Fischer’s competition. If your Facebook fans have their way, it doesn’t have to come to that. “It should be common sense that you cannot take a picture alone in the car while driving,” says the Facebook post about the competition.
Despite the supposed dangers, some fans have already managed to take a photo of the trucks, as a search for the relevant hashtag shows. A majority of the participants apparently didn’t even have to rush into the rush and collect a point in Flensburg. Because several of the photos were taken in parking lots and rest stops.
In the year after next, not only will the trucks go on tour, but also the pop singer herself. Helene Fischer has announced an XXL concert marathon *, where she will also stop in Oberhausen and Dortmund. At the shows in the KöPi-Arena and the Westfalenhalle, Schlager fans can enjoy the songs from the album “Rausch” completely risk-free – and live too. * RUHR24 is part of the IPPEN.MEDIA editorial network.
