|Bidragets oversatte titel||Et alvorligt anslag mod søndagskørsel i 1973|
The Yom Kippur war in October 1973 resulted in an oil embargo from OPEC (Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries) and as a consequence for eleven weekends it was strictly forbidden to drive on Sundays in Denmark –similar measures were taken in western Germany and the Netherlands. The ban was in effect from 25 November 1973 and lasted for eleven weekends, to 19 February 1974, although 23 December was the exception to this rule – well it was Christmas, after all.
