Just a small update on speed limits on expressways: While in Germany a general speed limit of 130 km/h has been rejected in parliament1, the Netherlands now have passed a law setting a general speed limit of 100 km/h during the day to combat too high nitrogen oxide emissions.2 (note that that’s no climate gas, but harmful for people, animals and plants). The prime minister called it a “rotten measure” but necessary.

Oh well.
