Mandatory snow tires in Germany for BMW Euro-delivery?

Check this out. Gotta love the Germans, taking reckless fools off of the road and making it a law to eliminate stupidity when it comes to driving in the snow:
2001 BMW 330i - Current at 235K
1996 Mitsubishi Galant S - gone at 121K
1993 Volvo 850 GLT - gone at 89K
1987 BMW 325 - gone at 238K

If the Police find that you are not equipped with the appropriate items when the weather conditions deem them necessary, and if the officer feels that other traffic participants have been endangered, they have the authority to fine a driver 20 Euros
damn, how much is this in rupees??

Couldn't we just not have a law and let idiots who want to drive on Michelin PSS's in the snow do, thus thinning out the population? Wouldn't that be more natural?

I picked up my car in Munich in October of last year and drove around with PS2's no problem. However I did monitor the weather according to my route and also had a back up plan of renting snow tires/wheels.

Its only if you cause an accident, I was there in November in 2009 for ED and got the snow tires because I heard of this law.

It was fine, there was no snow at all, something about how that part of the country is in a valley or something and the weather is less retarded there.

They also require you to possess sun glasses while driving as well as a first aid kit.
