Maximum speed on highway lowered from 130 kmh to 100 kmh for climate purposes. It won't have an affect at all. ITS A DISASTER. IM MOVING TO GERMANY

Same. Theo Hiddema specifically though, as much as appelflap's argument is just a laughable comment with no actual substance, I do think Baudet is actually a bit of a weirdo, but then again I'm not as shallow as him by judging a man's entire political ideas based on the way he speaks and acts, that is strictly limited to appelflap's extremely flawed personality, normal people luckily know better than that. :)

1) Im so glad to see you buddy, hi. 2) that superappelflap guy is batshit crazy dog, he's racist, xenophobic and he's also a communist with trump derangement syndrome calling him a racist, xenophobe and white supremacist. 3) Just because of people like you, i hope one day Nederland gets freedom, you've never had it, it's sad.

He has 40K posts in 4 years, that's 10x the amount I have. Clearly he spends every waking moment of his life on a computer screen, so how am I supposed to take any of his political opinions seriously when he doesn't even know what colour the sky is? It's a joke of a human being, and I feel extreme pity for such a waste of a man. Just look how obviously he's projecting his personal problems, yet rather than actually fixing them, he tries filling the void by posting on forums 24/7 and reacting with extreme prejudice when he disagrees. He can't just disagree on a normal level, he absolutely must tell the other person what a waste of space he/she is, oh what tragic irony.

Why not? Emissions are directly related to car speed and acceleration.
2019-11-14 12:18
Emissions come from the industry, not from people driving their cars at 120km to go to work. Although it's considerable, most of the polution come from industries and overpopulation. They use the cars to excuse themselves
2019-11-14 14:52
lowering the maximum speed, with how crowded our roads are, will reduce emissions and increase traffic flow. it was already told to my dumbfuck populist govt when they raised the max speed from 120 to 130 years ago, that they should actually lower it. but as usual they didnt listen. and now we have a big problem.
2019-11-14 15:33
Lower speeds will create more traffic jams and eventual accidents, more breaking and accelerating which means more polution. It's not only about the air, but the break dust is actually nefarious for the health. It's better to drive at a target efficiency/performance than simply driving slow all the time.
2019-11-14 15:39
lower max speed means less braking and accelerating. it helps to prevent traffic jams too because of less difference in speed between cars on the highway and less braking and accelerating and overtaking.
2019-11-14 15:48
You're completely wrong. I feel like you dont even drive irl lol
2019-11-14 15:59
rtlnieuws.nl/nieuws/nederland/artikel/49.. pull through google translate there have been plenty of studies about this in the past 10 years
2019-11-14 16:02
and this article doesnt even mention the fact that most ppl will actually get to work faster even with lower maximum speed because less variation in speed lowers the amount of traffic waves en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traffic_wave
2019-11-14 16:05
Let's say there's space ahead on the highway/road but u cant make use of it because you're following the speed limit, you're dragging everyone behind you. Now let's take into consideration the human reaction time and distraction levels. The slower you drive, the less attention you pay. It diminuishes the reaction speed as well. If you're on a traffic jam with constant accelerating and breaking you have to add the variable of people not reacting on time when the car in front drive off dragging everyone behind and so forth. Having a higher speed limit is supposed to make up for the conditions when you have empty road ahead. Lowering the limit is detrimental. While that reality may be functional in your country. It's not funcional in mine where you have empty space in the road.
2019-11-14 16:21
again, lower max speed would reduce amount of traffic jams. and amount of accidents. its been researched. this hypothetical situation in which you have empty road to use basically doesnt happen in my country. maybe between 2 and 4 in the night.
2019-11-14 16:15
back in like 2012 when they increased the max speed from 120 to 130 my govt was literally told by analysts that they hired, that it wouldnt get anyone to work faster and cause double digits in extra road fatalities every year. they did it anyway.
2019-11-14 16:18
yeah idk if that's true. why would reducing the speed increase traffic flow?
2019-11-14 15:40
you are supposed to keep about 2 seconds gap between you and the car in front of you. the faster cars are going, the more distance is covered in 2 seconds. at 130 km/h, you can fit only 100/130 = about 75% of the cars that you can fit on the same road at 100km/h. of course at 130 people will generally get to their destination a bit faster too, but only if they spend a lot of time on the highway will that outweigh the reduction in capacity. because our country is quite small, you basically would need to drive from the southern border with belgium to the border with germany all the way in the north before you would see any benefit from driving at 130 km/h and having to wait longer at traffic lights, waiting for your turn before getting onto the highway
2019-11-14 15:49
you have traffic lights on your highways?
2019-11-14 19:51
Fun fact: engines run more efficiently at moderately high RPM. Lower speeds will create higher traffic areas, which cause stop-and-go traffic, which produces more greenhouse emissions.

2019-11-14 09:07
You are fucking retarded, even if you are talking about NOx then barely any fucking oxygen is used up in the reaction since NOx make up a very small part of the atmosphere and oxygen is always used up anyway when burning a fuel.

1. I don't need to do research, I know way more than you already. 2. nothing is gonna save the planet. that wasn't the question, nor was the goal of reducing the speed limit saving the fucking planet. it's an effort to reduce emissions tho, and any effort is better than doing nothing. so whats your fucking point when you make a dumb comment like that? that doing nothing is better? that fighting against regulations for emissions and env protection is better? that sitting on the internet calling any sort of action "leftist bullshit" is better? yikes dawg.

Because it's fking stupid. It's like you wanting to be a 100m sprinter/runner and shave your head to be more aerodynamic but disregard the fact you're a 130kg fat ass. The reason of the problems is the industries/economy over-producing what the planet cant handle because there are too many humans. less plastic, less wood, less paper, less fishing, less bovines, less agressive agriculture, less clothes, less mining, less water consumption and then yes, less speed at driving. it's like putting a band-aid on a broken leg, it's retarded.

It is useless for co2 saving purposes, will save max 0.1% as cars in general are only accountable for approx 15% of co2. a country would be better off forbidding fat people, could save at least around 5% as agriculture can take up to 50% of co2.

ah well, youre right, my bad. Its about nox. Still useless, as local traffic in cities and manipulated trucks are major sources of nox emitions, not highways as those are typically not directly in cities, where emissions are a problem
2019-11-14 09:57
in this case its about natura 2000 regions which are protected by environmental regulation, and we have highways everywhere
2019-11-14 15:34
That seems somewhat odd to me. Do you guys plan to regulate vessels aswell? those are pulluting your famous port cities by a lot, they use heavy oil instead of regular diesel and have next to no exhaust gas treatment, same as buildings using diesel for heating. I just cant help but wonder why everyone picks on the car and only the car as the source for every problem imaginary? seems like scape goat politics to me, which help noone, but make everyone feel better. It is the same climate in Germany right now.
2019-11-14 16:12
it is scape goat politics. what govt should be doing is go to EU and have them set better regulation for heavy industry. but then, they would be admitting that they are pretty much useless and EU makes the decisions. national govts in EU like to pretend that they still have something to say when they really dont. so they come up with shitty halfassed measures that they are allowed to execute within the laws set by the actual government in Brussels.
2019-11-14 16:13
but despite that, speed limit of 100km/h is actually a good idea and it has been suggested many times already in the past 10 years that we should do it. this was a good excuse for the govt to do it, without losing voters for their parties. they have an excuse.
2019-11-14 16:14
Well, Im kinda glad you guys did it as we can hopefully get some research out of it. my bet is a increase in incidents (stagnating deaths though) while having around the same demand for fossil fuels, but maybe im wrong all along.

obv tracks are way more fun, yet i feel physical pain if I have to drive at low speeds for artificial reasons. 160-180 is so chilling, I dont get why there are worldwide limits on speed still. made sense in the 50s when cars were trash, but now?!

Here in belgium most highways are 120, just feels slow af. I'm racking up fine after fine -_- Limits are fine.. because of way too many people that can't drive for shit. But there need to be connecting highways with higher speed limits. like 180. (I don't see why it has to be unlimited.)

people rarely drive faster than 220 in Germany, there are too many curves, traffic etc so unlimited works well with common sense. 180 as a limit is also accaptable though. It has to be said, Germany has the lowest ratio of deaths on its autobahns, so unlimiting the speeds for certain parts definitly works. I see it as a way to increase concentration, as you permanently check for yourself which speed is accaptable. I tend to lose focus on limited speeds almost immediatly, I imagine this is the case for most people. The biggest chunk of traffic never exceeds 140 anyways, and as most autobahns are conjested all the time it is somewhat rare to drive even faster than 80 during rush hour. I

Yep I know of the lowest death ratio on the autobahn. I totally agree on what you say about focus and concentration. When I'm speeding hard AF (I drive a stage 2, 335i) (night, empty highway, no cameras) I'm waaay more focused than when I'm cruising 120 with traffic. But you said it though. unlimited works well with common sense... A lot of people do not have this. I don't think it would work now if we would ever change our roads to unlimited. Everyone is used to slower limites, which turns most people into shit slow drivers. I think it will have big crashes everyday if we would change it from one day to the other.

Imo a big improvement (but kinda unrealistic) would be that everyone needs to re do their driving exams every 5 or 10 years. (but free or low cost) It's insane that a 80 old slow fucking grandpa, that got his license just by going to the army when he was 18, is still allowed to drive on public roads, while he needs glasses 10cm thick to read a newspaper. Also things like reaction time needs to have a standard and be tested.

true, true!
2019-11-14 12:04
because of: less air resistance therefore better fuel economy less accidents because of less road required to brake to a full stop, more time to react, less speed difference between cars on the highway longer lifetime on engine and suspension etc better traffic flow because, at higher speeds, you need more distance between cars, so less cars fit on the same amount of road. lower speed, more cars fit.
2019-11-14 15:39
fuel economy is slightly better, I know. for the same reasons you really should go vegan and stop heating in the winter. Personally, I like to live inestead. less accidents is unproven. Germany has less incidents than NL on highways, so I'd argue that traffic speed limits make you sleepy and annoyed, therefore more likely to crash. engines already last 300000km ++, so I dont see this as an issue. Your car is outdated on safety tech before it reaches its mechanical limits. better traffic flow is only imaginary. Those simulations dont take into account how people really drive: They dont increase the distance to one another by such a huge margin as the law requires, therefore more cars can flow at once. It doesnt really make sense to lower the speed of water in a river if you want to increase its total water flow, does it? Also, you cant overtake slow/annoying drivers, so the effective speeds get even slower in many cases when you use artificial limits, resulting in huge chunks of traffic caused by slow drivers instead of makeing full usage of the highway.
2019-11-14 16:01
>. Those simulations dont take into account how people really drive: They dont increase the distance to one another by such a huge margin as the law requires, therefore more cars can flow at once. this cuases more serious accidents which block lanes and cause traffic jams which reduces traffic flow significantly. multiple cars are totaled every day on dutch highways during rush hour. less accidents would already significantly improve traffic flow when it matters most >. It doesnt really make sense to lower the speed of water in a river if you want to increase its total water flow, does it? yes but cars arent water drops, they are discrete units. lets take another example. you have a stone quarry and you want to have a maximum amount of stones moved through a tunnel to the surface. if you jam in as many rocks as you can on a conveyor belt, they will bump into each other and into the walls. if you leave some room, the flow will be much better. > Also, you cant overtake slow/annoying drivers, so the effective speeds get even slower in many cases when you use artificial limits you can overtake people you just cant drive more than 100 km/h on average. sticking to the left lane is a traffic violation with a fine of like 400 euro.
2019-11-14 16:11
Your arguments are valid and represent the current state of mind and science in many countries. From driving practice in Germany and many european countries, I can safely say that Germans make more efficent use of highway space without being unreasonable. This reflects in low deaths on the autobahn aswell as the surprising high numbers of vehicles on our very limited highway space (i live in the ruhr area). To take on your stone example, you can think of slower stones creating waves of congested traffic, as not every driver is proficent in overtaking and many are half asleep as there is really nothing to think about when you drive 100kmh or less. sure, if you put in too many too fast, they will block and crash completely. I'd argue that they can go faster than 100kmh, as the German examples shows. it doesnt hurt when 3% of stones go 200kmh where they can, making for a more efficent usage of space bewteen those "waves". It is really hard for me to argue about such a vague topic on hltv instead of in person :D ill just link this: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_.. sort by deaths per billion road km, youll see germany right between countries with extremely tough policies on speed while being very lenient themselves. most people die on country roads in germany, btw.

People are getting angry about 30km? Our country from top north to bottom south is about 350km which will save you around 30-40minutes if you were to drive that. In time for MOST people it won't make a difference, in safety however 30km is a lot and can prevent more deathly accidents from happening. Even if it just saves about .35% of nitrogen it's a step in the right direction.

lowering the speed on highways to 100 km/h, with current highway utilisation, will actually reduce the time it takes people to get to work, because more cars will fit on the road and less speed difference so less traffic jams whats fucked is that you are so dumb you dont even know what is good for you
2019-11-14 15:18
I bet you have the same kind of app or thing you can put in the window as we have in Denmark, where it tells you if the police is out measuring your speed, just to give you a ticket. This let's you go as fast as you want without being in any chance of getting caught.
2019-11-14 15:38
In some highways are systems that scan you car plates then it scan it again when you leave highway then calculate avg speed. Also there are static devices with cameras which mesure your speed.
2019-11-14 15:55
Ah, alright. I only think we have plate scanning system on one single part of a highway in Denmark. The rest of the time it's either police cars hiding or cop cars meant for measuring speed sitting on the side of the highway. Pretty easy to avoid

why we shouldn't give a fuck about the new speed (100km / h). too much traffic on the road, I would like to be able to drive at work with 100 km / h. This is usually not the case. by moving it to 100 km / h, the insertion and change of lane will be better. Truck drive at 80 km / hour and cars between 80 and 130. That is too big off a difference. I honestly don't understand why politics brings in the environment. (:

Only a small percentage of people are ever actually good at something. This also applies to driving. Can you imagine anything else in the world where the majority of people are allowed to do something that directly affects the life and safety of everyone else? If you want to improve traffic flow, then improve public transport and simultaneously make access to a driver's license 100 times harder in terms of test difficulty. So much traffic is caused by terrible lane use, terrible speed choice, and lack of awareness.
