it Goes to the Federal Minister of transport, Scheuer, there is to be no new debate to a speed of 130 km on highways. "Hype", back gets thinner, the SPD-Boss.
BERLIN dpa/taz | Federal Minister of transport, Andreas Scheuer (CSU) does not want to talk with the coalition partner SPD to a General speed limit on German motorways. "We have far more tasks, as this is a highly emotional topic again and again and again into the window – a topic for which there are no majorities," he said on the first day of Christmas the dpa. He put on a "better traffic management and Traffic control through digital systems."
The SPD around that begin in the meantime. In October she had rejected in the Bundestag a request from the Green to a General speed limit. However, not because they kept the step in terms of content is wrong, but the coalition agreement to be complied with. At the party Congress at the beginning of December, the SPD had voted in again for a speed limit, like at the party Congress in 2007. The new SPD-tip announced that Walter-Borjans, and esque, to negotiate with the Union over the issue. Now reacted shy and refused to – well-placed in the news poor Christmas season.
The SPD Chairman, Saskia esque countered, in turn, piqued. "I can understand that the Minister of transport Scheuer attempts to produce messages away from the toll debacle. But he is not in the Position to regulate the Affairs of the coalition,“ she said on Wednesday. "A speed limit on our motorways is good for climate protection, the security and protects the nerves of the motorists. And that is why we will talk about it again in the new year.“ Outside of Germany, a speed limit is the normal case. "Only the CSU, it still makes a unfathomable Hype," says esque. Thomas Bareiß, CDU, state Secretary in the Federal Ministry of economy, etched on Twitter: "Are the would like to the issues with which the SPD again the people's party be...? Speed limit will not provide a significant contribution to climate protection, nor does he make our highways safer.“
Without speed limit still 70 percent of the motorway network. Permanently or temporarily restrictions with signs, there are 20.8 percent of the network, such as halfway-to-date data of the Bundesanstalt für straßenwesen show. Regardless, a recommended speed of 130 shall apply. In the EU there is anywhere else Tempo restrictions. At the accident statistics on motorways in Germany is in the midfield.
Scheuer speaks at the speed limit of a "emotional issue", Bareiß already warned in January of 2019 in front of a restriction of freedom and mobility. Both limit the time in the Union. The theme will probably be negotiated in the Grand coalition a new. And the next Bundestag election campaign? A speed limit campaign is.Updated Date: 26 December 2019, 18:00
