German citizens and officials, including traffic safety researchers, appear to support the practice of not posting speed limits on autobahns outside of urban areas. According to officials of Germany's Ministry of Transport, most of the reasons given for implementing speed limits, i.e., safety, fuel conservation, etc., are not adequately supported by the facts.
I recently got pulled over in Frankfurt, GR, leaving Automechanika Expo. The cop was on a BMW. He was a great guy, spoke some English and loved my German. He said that since I ride a better BMW than he rides every day he was considering raising my fine!
I had cut thru some stripes on the road to do a flip....frowned upon there! He said my fine should be over 200 Euro, but since I was a BMW owner and could speak some German, he would charge the lowest fine in his book, 35 Euro. He then said follow me and I'll show you the fast way to where you are going due to road construction your rental BMW nav is not aware of ...then he pulls a wheellie and off we go. Great guy and a fast, fine rider.
