When I lived in Stuttgart Germany I can testify that there IS already a Speed Limit on the Autobahn
I have received speeding tickets in my Mercedes Benz, Opel and Porsche.
Trust me when I say this; Germany has very strict Speeding Laws.
They are enforced by the Polizei and by use of very cleverly hidden Auto Flash Cameras.
There are sections on the Autobahn that are free from Speed limitations, but then it very quickly, almost without warning, a Speed Limitation resumes.
Very difficult to speed when Germany is notoriously famous for their home brewed Schtaus? Schtau? ( Traffic jam )
So indemic are these schtaus that all traffic stops on the Autobahn, folks get out of their cars and they start to eat sandwiches, pour them selves hot drinks from their Thermos bottles. Incredible sight to witness and even more incredible to be caught up in one and doing the same thing!
Just my two euros.
