Are Speed Limit Signs Coming To The Autobahn?
Since its construction in 1929, the world's oldest freeway system has lacked an official speed limit. Now, with gasoline prices soaring, many German politicians are seeking to tame the Autobahn with an 85mph top speed. But their pressure to integrate with a greater European system is finding stiff resistance in the land of the sports car. For many Germans, constraints on the highway are a personal attack on freedom; the head of Auto Club Europe compares the love of driving in Germany to the American passion for guns.
