Speed limit of 120km/h on German motorways

The environmental organisation Deutsche Umwelthilfe has a new proposal for climate protection: to introduce a speed limit on German motorways. Transport Minister Scheuer is opposed. The German situation is, however, an exception in Europe: the border countries France, Switzerland and Belgium all have a speed limit of 120 to 130 km/h and in Denmark it is even reduced to 90 or 100 km/h.
