Germans debate speeding on autobahns

Germans debate speeding on autobahns, by Drive.

An emotional public debate is currently raging in Germany on whether to do away with a “national icon” – driving as fast as you can on the country’s autobahn or motorways. …

Germany is the only country in the world with no blanket speed limit on motorways, with only a “recommended speed” of 130 km/h.

But a growing number of Germans are now questioning this “freedom”, arguing that it makes no sense calling for measures to curb global warming in other countries while at home motorists can effortlessly continue spewing large amounts of C02 into the atmosphere at the speeds they are allowed to travel.

More virtue signalling. Where’s Jeremy Clarkson when you need him?
