  • Has anyone been to germany lately? Autobahn may have no restrictions for speed , but too many vehicles on it to go fast .

    and to the Drug problems in Germany they believe they have no drug problems, most are herion addicted. They support their addicts by giving clean needles.

    The speed limit change in TX will make more go 90 or even 100mph as now people go 80 anyway! I gather Texas thinks we might have too many people on Our roads, faster speeds will definately help thin out Our population.

  • What's Germany do with illegals crossing their borders? Do they ignore them and ignore their policies and laws as well.

    How's the drug traffic in Germany? Are they winning the war?

  • I saw this article quoted on the CBS morning show this morning -- it showed an online version of the Victoria Advocate and they said the Victoria Advocate reports...

  • Texas may be on the "fast track" to safety! Germany wastes no enforcement on rural stretches of autobahn because they're so safe: just 1.9 deaths (compared to the overall rate of 5.2 deaths) per billion travel kilometers in 2010. Over three decades Germany cut its traffic toll 80% -- from 19,193 to 3,648 (only 430 of which occur on autobahns). Without blustering ignorantly about "saving lives" by pestering motorists.

    Some perspective: under the odious 55mph speed limit the lowest U.S. traffic toll was 43,825 deaths. During the 65/55 transitional era: 39,250 deaths. Despite doom-and-delusions of NHTSA and the IIHS about higher speed limits, the U.S. traffic toll in 2011 was estimated to be 32,310. Now drug deaths and suicides surpass traffic fatalities in the United States.

    Roll on!
