A speed limit of 130 kilometers per hour on highways is out of the question for the CSU. The Christian Social see themselves as representatives of a majority opinion. The party is now launching a signature campaign in order to increase the pressure in the fight against the “ban delusion”.
The CSU wants to lead the opponents of a speed limit on German motorways. The party launched a new campaign: Supporters can register on a website under the motto “Speed limit? No thanks! Join in – together against speed limit”, as the “Bild” newspaper reports. According to the CSU, 10,000 supporters would have registered within two days of activating the site.
“The constant ban ban stinks more and more citizens,” said CSU General Secretary Markus Blume of the newspaper. “Many citizens want to set an example and fight back.”
With Andreas Scheuer, the CSU provides the Federal Minister of Transport. In addition to the Greens, the SPD, which is co-ruling in the federal government, is now campaigning for a speed limit of 130 kilometers per hour on motorways and cites climate protection as one of the reasons.
The debate about the speed limit was recently fueled by an announcement by ADAC not to make any recommendations in the dispute. The largest automobile club in Germany justified its neutrality with an “unclear” opinion of its members.
