Development aid for Germany
There's a limit to solidarity!
Put the pedal to the metal and let your mind drift away: driving fast is great! However, it is becoming increasingly clear that speeding also has its downsides. Traffic fatalities, greenhouse gas emissions and now also the large-scale Russian attack on Ukraine. Since the beginning of the attack, more than 8 billion euros have flowed from Germany to Russia for oil, petrol and diesel – that’s more than 40 million euros per day, with which Germany is helping to finance the Russian war of aggression.
Fortunately, there is a simple solution to these problems: a legal speed limit would not only save lives and do the environment a favour. It could also reduce the flow of money to Russia for fuel by a whole 7%. Wonderful!
Unfortunately, there is the matter of the lack of signs, says the German Minister for Transportion Volker Wissing (FDP): “For a temporary speed limit, you would have to put up appropriate signs. We don’t have that many signs in stock.”
We at Development Aid for Germany say: don’t worry, Mr Wissing, we’ll take care of it! Because we have to face the truth: Germany is a developing country when it comes to speed limits. To bridge Germany’s sign emergency, we provide speed limit stickers. With these, the existing signs can be easily and sustainably pasted over, without the need for annoying new erections. And it gets even better: once the legal speed limit has been introduced nationwide, there will be no need for signs at all – after all, it will then apply to the whole of Germany! “Win-win”, say we at Development Aid for Germany!
