It’s official – the autobahn now has a speed limit! Well, just one 60km stretch of it anyway. A 60km stretch of the legendary unrestricted German motorway that goes through the northern city of Bremen in Germany now has a 120km/h speed limit.
“This is a good day for traffic safety and we are also sending a signal about protecting the environment and climate. Our goal is to introduce a general speed limit on motorways in the whole of Germany together with other states,” said Bremen’s environment minister Reinhard Loske.
