The election for the German Bundestag took place in September 2021. Exploratory talks have been going on since then. A controversial topic: the speed limit on highways. The transport sector is the third-largest cause of greenhouse gas emissions in Germany. According to a study by the Federal Environment Agency from 2020, it is said that greenhouse gas emissions on German highways would decrease by 1.9 million tons annually due to a speed limit of 130 km/h.
