The nature conservation association WWF is demanding a speed limit of 120 kilometers per hour on motorways from the future federal government. “For the WWF it is clear that a speed limit of 120 on motorways must be in the next coalition agreement,” said nature conservation director Christoph Heinrich to the newspapers of the Funke media group.
A speed limit saves almost two million tons of CO2 emissions, makes motorways safer and can be implemented quickly, free of bureaucratic and free of charge. “The next federal government must show that it wants to tackle the climate crisis resolutely and does not ignore simple measures such as a speed limit,” emphasized Heinrich.
The SPD, Greens and FDP are currently exploring the possibility of a traffic light coalition. The SPD and the Greens are in favor of a speed limit of 130 kilometers per hour on motorways, the FDP rejects this as a symbolic policy. (dpa / mer)
