Habeck promises speed limit, and wallows in the bare green populism

So it will not come, of course, because a black-green coalition – Stand today – is much more likely than a green alone government. But such a government can only be formed if the CDU/CSU as by Habeck, apparently, expected the pace restriction agrees. The Union group should refuse this Anti-car policy, there would be, therefore, no government with the green party. Habeck would then "make the Lindner" and explain, "it's better not to reign than in the no-speed-limit rule". About the author: Hugo Müller-Vogg

speed limit is not a panacea against deaths on the road

Now you can enter with quite serious reasons for a speed limit: lower CO2 emissions and probably less accidents. The latter is not, of course, sure. 90 percent of all fatal traffic accidents occurred last year, on country roads and in urban traffic, i.e. where there are already speed limits. A speed limit is not a panacea against traffic deaths. By the way: In a house with so many people come in a year three Times to death, as in the road traffic.

That Habeck Tempo 130 rises to one of the most pressing tasks of green government policy is surprising in view of the situation in the country. Germany must fight in the coming period, the serious economic consequences of the Corona-pandemic, in the field of digitisation with the US and China vigorously to catch up, to the simultaneous exit from nuclear power and coal bear, and the systems of social protection and readjust – and all this with empty coffers and high debt. In comparison, a speed of 130 km would be, at best, a nice, but meaningless addition.

Maybe Habeck wants to play only

Habecks push is green populism pure and simple. The large urban core electorate of the Green with the U-Bahn on the doorstep is not unlike the commuters in rural areas have to rely on the car. Also the eco-not have to count the employees of the automotive industry and their suppliers, with vocal loss, if there is a speed limit in the industry, complicates life even further; the industrial workers, the Greens are not anchored in anyway strong. Tempo 130, therefore, is a claim, the like of the own clientele and their own election prospects no harm: an almost ideal choice of gift.

If the Greens want to govern with the CDU/CSU, testifies to the Habecks advance not just of strategic foresight. Who's the speed limit on the highways to the litmus test for a government's education power, the might not want to make even seriously. Maybe Habeck wants to play. Or he slams the door to the Union already, as a precaution, and relies on a red-Red-Green. That means "Free travel in the ban-state" – without the speed limit.
