Are Germans for or against a speed limit on their Autobahns?

According to a poll by, the majority of Germans would be in favour a speed limit on the Autobahns. OK, the speed limit 56 per cent of the polled would accept would be 150 km/h (roughly 93 mph). A lower speed limit would not be acceptable for the vast majority, according to data from the same survey. The poll covered a representative sample of 1,198 people, who were interviewed between October 9 and 13 2015.

Officials of the German motorists’ organisation ADAC are against a speed limit, for they don’t think a speed limit would have much influence on the number of Autobahn accidents. More dangerous sections of the motorway already have speed limits, and it is not possible to drive longer distances at highest speeds. A survey organised between the 19 million ADAC members last year, showed that 65 per cent were against a speed limit.

Conclusion: You only have to ask the right question in order to get the answers you want.
