Germany may put a speed limit on its autobahn. The autobahn is 12,996 kilometers long. There is no speed limit for many cars. Some areas like accidents spots or roads that are being repaired have a limit. Germany may put a 130kph limit on all parts of the autobahn. It has to cut its greenhouse gases.
Many drivers are unhappy and do not want a limit, even if other countries have one. Politicians say a speed limit will never become law. A German newspaper disagreed with any speed limit. It wrote: "Our autobahn roads are a symbol of freedom. 'Tested on German autobahn' is a quality seal. There are enough speed limits."
