In Bremen, the Greens call on the highway a speed limit of 80 kilometers per hour, in order to reduce the noise for local residents. The Bremer pushed through a General speed limit.
The Green of the Bremen regional Parliament are calling for a speed limit of 80 kilometers per hour along the highways in the city. The Weser Kurier reported. To apply the speed limit between 22 p.m. and 6 a.m. on motorways, along the residential areas. Truck shall be allowed to drive according to the claim only 60 km/h.
In particular, it goes to the A1 motorway sections in Hemelingen, Arbergen, Arsten and Kattenesch, as well as sections of the A27 in Tenever. The speed limit is intended to ensure, especially for a lower level of noise pollution and close to the motorway, people living. Accordingly, the noise level is exceeded in some areas, the limit of 55 decibels at night, which classified the world health organization (WHO) as a health hazard.
Bremen already a pioneer in the speed limit
It wouldn’t be the first Time that Bremen vorprescht with a General speed limit. Already in 2008, the Hanseatic city was the first to state a General speed limit of 120 kilometers per hour. Of these, around 120 kilometres of motorway are affected.
With the current proposal the Greens there are, however, quite alone. Both the Opposition and the coalition partners in the SPD oppose a speed limit. Instead, the first technical solutions to the noise is to be implemented.
