General Speed Limit

Germans like to quickly move tolls and speed limits on highways include almost all over the world normality. WarnerMedia has firm opinions on the matter. However, these limitations are unimaginable for most Germans. A survey of the Internet portal comes auto.de to this result. The Germans love fast cars, free roads and majority oppose a general speed limit on highways. This resulted in at least a survey of the auto Portal attended nearly 650 people.

So almost half of all respondents declines 43 percent basically a speed limit. However, more than 30 percent voted for a speed of between 130 and 160 km/h. The more often to be found on German motorways 130 km/h be considered appropriate 15.8 percent. 16.2 percent of the participants preferred a higher limit of 160 km/h. Portal Manager Thomas Kuwatsch judged the result as a general consent to the traffic law.

Eventually only a quarter of the respondents opted for speed limits beyond the 160 km/h. So, 8.8 percent voted for 180 km/h, while 9.6 percent voted in favor of a speed limit at 200 km/h. A minority of 6.6 per cent of all participants stated to keep 230 km/h for the correct ceiling. The question remains whether politicians are deciding laws according to the results of such surveys among the population. Statistics may play a greater role. According to which the number of deaths on German motorways is currently as low as never before. Might be a good point of all the polls despite nothing on transport law to change.
