Germany makes it easier to introduce 30km/h limits near schools

  • April 11, 2016

German state transport ministers have approved legal changes that will allow for easier application of 30km/h limits near schools and hospitals.

The change, announced one year ago by transport minister Alexander Dobrindt, means local authorities no longer need to show that the road in question is already a hotspot for collisions.

Meanwhile, in Ireland, Moyagh Murdock, head of the Road Safety Authority, an ETSC member, has said 30km/h should become the default speed limit in Irish towns and cities.
