A General speed limit of 130 km/h on motorways, and higher taxes on gasoline and Diesel – these proposals were made by experts of the “National platform for future mobility”, in order for Germany to reach its climate goals in the transport sector.

The Federal transport Ministry reacted to the report by the MIRROR, and described the proposal of the so-called “group 1” as “neither socially nor economically” – the group of experts was convened at the proposal of the Federal Minister of transport, Andreas Scheuer (CSU).

Scheuer wanted to develop “together creative ideas”

The platform “future of mobility” aims to develop six working groups under the leadership of Scheuers Ministry of solutions for a “sustainable, affordable and climate-friendly mobility”. The “working group 1” deals with the topic of climate protection in the transport.

With the new platform, you’ll get all to the table, “to develop new and creative ideas,” said Minister Scheuer in September 2018 in the case of the creation of the Commission of experts – some of the ideas were the Ministry now apparently to be creative.
