Speed limit: top CDU politician thinks it’s crazy – “I can drive 250”
The Union is clearly against a speed limit on motorways. A CDU top politician made this clear again with a pithy slogan.
- The maximum speed allowed in urban areas is 50 km / h and on country roads 100 km / h
- In most European countries, a general speed limit also applies on motorways.
- In Russia the speed limit is 110, in Spain, Portugal and Belgium a maximum of 120 km / h is allowed.
- There are also speed limits on the highways in the US states. They vary between 105-140 km / h.

The parliamentary group leader of the CDU in Saxony-Anhalt, Siegfried Borgwardt, railed against a general maximum speed. “If I drive towards Hamburg at three in the morning, I can drive 250 if there is no danger,” said Borgwardt according to the “Mitteldeutsche Zeitung” on Wednesday in Magdeburg.

The general speed limit 130 is “completely crazy”, says the CDU politician
He wants “intelligent networks”. It is “completely crazy” to insist on a speed limit of 130 km / h at night when the motorways are empty. In addition, the German autobahns are the safest in the whole world.

Tempo 130 only “symbolic politics” when it comes to climate protection?
What Borgwardt does not mention, however, is the climate protection aspect of a possible speed limit. According to a study by the Federal Environment Agency, Tempo 130 could save around 1.9 million tons of CO2 annually.
However, that in turn is only a minimal proportion of Germany’s total CO2 emissions. For example, they were 702 million tons in 2019. That is why critics of the general speed limit speak of “symbolic politics”.
