Autobahn Speed Limit Proposed by German Politicians

Probably one of the world’s most famous stretches of pavement among everyday drivers, the Autobahn is known for its no speed limit policy, but a bill proposed in Germany could change that by year’s end.

Suggested by Germany’s Green and Social Democratic Parties, the idea is to limit drivers to 80 mph, or 130 km/h in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It isn’t a popular move, though. German “Automobilclub Mobil” conducted a survey that showed 82 percent of respondents against the idea.
Now the group is trying to assemble 100,000 signatures in a petition against the bill as well. The Social Democratic Party tried to impose a speed limit on the Autobahn in 2007 as well, but failed in its attempt.
The notion that reducing the speed limit will have a significant impact on greenhouse gasses is being called ridiculous by the ADAC, Germany’s largest automobile club, which says the change would only reduce emissions by 0.5 percent.
