Goslar (dpa) - In the debate about a speed limit on highways, the ADAC has given up its declining stance for decades.
ADAC Vice President of Transport, Gerhard Hillebrand, told the German Press Agency in advance of the 58th Traffic Court in Goslar (29 to 31 January) that ADAC was “no longer fundamentally” against a speed limit. With a good 21 million members, the ADAC is the largest automobile club in Germany.
"The discussion about the introduction of a general speed limit on motorways is emotionally conducted and polarized among the members," said Hillebrand. "That is why the ADAC is currently not stipulating the question." Objectification is urgently required. The effects of a speed limit should be urgently clarified in a comprehensive study. "This would provide a reliable basis for decision-making."
At this year's traffic judges' day, the experts will be dealing, among other things, with aggressiveness in road traffic, novice drivers and new ways of driving skills and small electric vehicles.
