Have you been flashed recently? For example completely surprising in your hometown, where you should know your way around? Or in a strange city, where wisely you always keep an eye on the speedometer so as not to overstrain the inner-city speed limit of 50 km /h? And then suddenly it washed up, the red lightning bolt of the law struck your cornea and triggered a strong blood pressure spike?

When the cities need money

I know that, it just happened to me, both in my hometown and at the away game in Cologne. In both cases I drove at (just over) 50 km /h according to the regulations, but unfortunately the regulations had changed: Many cities continue to reduce the maximum speed, from the original 50 to 40 or even 30 km /h. I can live with it very well in front of a school, and logically in other danger spots too.

But when in Cologne on the north-south drive, a two-lane main road, over a length of only 200 meters suddenly and without any apparent signs Reason the speed should be reduced to 30 km /h, then one wonders why. Then it flashes red and you know the answer: Cologne needs money. Traffic educational effect? Zero.

Two years ago I was flashed in front of a school in Bonn in a speed limit of 30. The pace was measured in the middle of the summer vacation. Didn't we learn something again? No, nothing for the future, but for life.

50 km /h as an appropriate speed

Bonn is at the top of my personal shitlist: the control authorities presented on a six-lane federal highway a roundabout a mobileTrailer speed camera on. The speed was reduced within 100 meters from 70 to 50 and then to 30 km /h. The speed camera was right behind the 30 sign - and that's when it hit me.

But because 30 km /h is much too slow for this point, you can now drive 50 km /h again. The mobile speed camera is still there, it only flashes very seldom, because most people are sensible and drive around 50 km /h in the city.

I think that's an absolute one reasonable speed, apart from exceptions like schools. The current rampant and widespread introduction of inner-city speed limits of 40 or 30 km /h is, however, widespread nonsense without any transport policy benefit. From a fiscal point of view, however, it's a bomb business.

Have fun reading our new issue,

Yours, Marcus Schurig.
