A leaked proposal to impose universal speed limits on the German Autobahn is causing outrage among car-loving Germans, according to a report by Associate Press. Germany is one of the few countries in the world that doesn’t impose speed limits on the Autobahn.

Germany’s transport minister, Andreas Scheuer said the idea “goes against all common sense,” but prominent Green Party lawmaker Cem Ozdemir said the move to impose speed limit is an “act of reason.”

The idea, which is essentially still a notion, would limit speeds on the country’s highways to 80 mph, or 129 km/h. Those in support said the move would reduce air pollution, help fight climate change and reduce the number of car accidents.

This isn’t the first time environmentalists had called for speed limits to be imposed on the Autobahn, though. Over the years, particularly since 2007, eco activists have fought for its implementation, stating that speed limits will cut greenhouse gas emissions and help Germany brush up its green credentials. Thoughts, guys?
