• German limit

    Germany’s city-state of Bremen announced last month that its 60 kilometres of motorway will have a blanket 120 km/h speed limit.

    Bremen’s traffic and environment senator Reinhard Loske said the limit is to improve safety and to send out a signal about the need to tackle noise, environmental pollution and climate change.’ Loske is keen for the limit to be adopted nationwide (Germany has no general motorway speed limit), but there is little sign of enthusiasm from other German states.
