According to an internal paper from the Federal Government, the problem with CO2 emissions for 2020 has been solved.
From 1 August, a speed limit of 130 km/h will apply on all German motorways and the burning of fireworks will be banned throughout Germany. In return, a black badge (the vehicles are always allowed to drive anywhere!) for culturally significant vehicles (e.g. armoured vehicles from the USSR), the driving bans for diesel vehicles will be lifted and the defeat devices in diesel vehicles will be legalised.
“We can go on like this for 10 years!” is quoted as saying by a leading politician who is also considered a lobbyist for the automotive and oil industries.
