Audi boss proposes speed limit and driving ban


WWasn’t it Adenauer who said: “People always drive”? Not at all. That is, Adenauer was already there; but he said something else: children! People always had children, said the first Chancellor who was not a friend of the bosses, at least not one of the car bosses. Where is the difference? Even! The car, as the favorite child of the Germans from afar, overtook the real child a long time ago. It is loved and cherished, cared for and cared for so that the beams bend, and largely creates a high state, which is still growing.

Pay please

Current official statistics: There are about 68 million cars (including trailers) in Germany, of which 48.5 million are passenger, about two-thirds of which are self-made. 84 million people live here, 13 million children and youth under the age of eighteen. This means that there is one car for every 1.44 adults, including the elderly, the sick and those with disabilities. So one cannot say that Germany is not used in terms of private transport. Even the two biggest current conflicts, climate change and war/increased energy prices, have changed nothing – on the contrary: for the last month, the number of new registrations was 14.1 percent more than a year ago. Why not? You cannot proceed with common sense.

Say “speed limit” or “driving ban” once and there’s a civil war. The weather is in the ditch anyway, so why take away people’s last joy, their car? Yes, build and drive cars, worst case scenario, increasingly unrestricted. And woe betide anyone who dares to ask at least once if volume and gaps can be an option, the top car influencer is immediately there, twisting the words in your mouth and shouting that drivers do not need any “instructions” (Hildegard Müller) Fear grips people as soon as they are asked to fasten their seat belts; they get hysterical.

But not only the methods of reason are not understood, but also the methods of mental manipulation. It was then that the powerful car king ordered that all cars be valued. Well, something like that. In any case, the truth is that none other than Audi boss Markus Duesmann has made proposals that are unusual, even original, at least for the local industry: Sundays without cars, i.e. a strict ban on driving, as well as a speed limit. And yet it was somehow predictable – a Munsterlander who rides a racing bike, like the head of Audi, can’t be a bad guy. Anyone who thought it would be a cold day in hell before the automaker said the right thing should hang their heads in shame. Hallelujah!
