the Federal transport Minister, Andreas Scheuer has underlined his rejection of the speed limits on motorways. The “picture on Sunday”, said the CSU politician: “the principle of freedom has proven its worth. Who wants to go 120, to 120. Who wants to drive faster, must also.

With a view to the safety aspect, the Minister said: “German highways are the safest roads in the world.”
about 30 percent of the highway miles, namely, 7640, would have a speed limit, 18.150 km none. Scheuer told the newspaper: “the System of recommended speed works and has proven itself.”
shy wants to mobility data was one of to use

The citizens must trust the state.“ So you could develop better mobility and could get an even cleaner air.
