Der am Erlernen des Ordnungswidrigkeitenrecht Interessierte kann inzwischen aus einer Reihe von Lehrbuchtiteln wählen. Die überarbeitete und aktualisierte Auflage des vorliegenden Lehrbuchs vollzieht die Gesetztsentwicklung der seit der 1. Auflage vergangenen 10 Jahre nach und paßt den textual content dem aktuellen Stand in Rechtsprechung und Wissenschaft an. Großer Wert wurde darauf gelegt, das Buch noch leserfreundlicher und lernerfolggerichteter zu gestalten.
