How do the Germans reconcile their love of automobiles with their environmental fetish? It's a tug-of-war that's been going on there for decades; hence, the creeping imposition of speed limits on autobahns. A report today (to which I'll link, but isn't in English) reveals that the opposition CDU have teamed up with the Green party to demand a ban on driving personal automobiles on Sundays. Why? In order to minimize diesel particulate emissions. I can't believe that the purported conservatives in Germany are proposing something so stupid.
