[YesAuto Wonderful Car Life] No matter how fast your car can drive, you must obey the speed limit on the highway. Many people would like to experience the unlimited speed highway in Germany, right? Recently, however, one party in Germany has proposed speed limits on German highways.

About 80% of the highway sections in Germany have no speed limit. A German political party has proposed to the Bundestag that a speed limit of 130km/h should be set on German highways from January 1, 2020. The party believes that the speed limit on German highways will effectively improve road safety and avoid traffic accidents caused by high-speed driving. At the same time, driving within the speed limit can also reduce vehicle carbon emissions and reduce noise pollution.

The party has long been committed to the sustainable development of ecology, economy and society. The most favorable point of this proposal is that excessively high speeds can cause traffic accidents. As we all know, many car fans regard the unrestricted highway in Germany as a paradise for drivers, where you can enjoy the fun of speed. The proposal of speed limit makes many fans feel uneasy.

Recently, the German Bundestag voted to reject the proposal for a highway speed limit of 130km/h. That day, the House received 631 votes, of which 498 votes were against and only a few abstained. All parties, including the German Union Party, the Choice Party, and the Social Democratic Party, oppose high-speed speed limits. Even the Transport Committee does not recommend speed limits on German highways. The Ministry of Environment even stated that adopting speed limits will not significantly reduce carbon emissions . Okay, now the “speed party” can finally breathe a sigh of relief, but everyone can relax. After all, if the number of traffic accidents caused by high-speed driving increases, the probability of speed limit proposals being passed increases.
