Last generation Wissing delivers signs “We wanted to give the Volker a hand”

Saturday, October 22, 2022, 10:00 a.m – The last generation delivers 100 km/h signs to Transport Minister Wissing. We have to be grateful to the peacefully engaged citizens. Because of their brave commitment, the last hurdle to finally introducing the speed limit that the whole world is waiting for has now been removed.

It is Saturday shortly after 10 a.m. in front of the Federal Ministry of Transport when a silver van drives calmly up and comes to a stop in front of the historic entrance portal. As soon as the door opens, several helpers jump from the loading area and gradually place 500 km/h 100 signs in awe on the expansive steps of the huge building.

Your free sign donation goes back to last April, when Federal Transport Minister Volker Wissing used the argument against a speed limit, There are not enough signs for this.

Mirjam Herrmann, 25, is one of the committed people on site. She stands over the pile of signs and holds a self-painted cardboard box that postulates: 'No speed limit at the speed limit!'
"We are here to help"she says to a camera aimed at her. “We have been calling for a speed limit for months. Now we have remembered that Volker Wissing has this sign problem. Of course we don't want to be so mean and demand something that is already logistically completely impossible for the Ministry of Transport. Then I said to the others: 'Come on, let's take heart and give Volker a little help.'”

Miriam Meyer (30) with the sign 'Let's gooooo – speed limit!': “During the preparation, we realized that it was actually not that easy to get so many real metal signs. But I think the plastic dummies will do the trick temporarily until we have a long-term solution.”

Her colleague Edmund Schultz, 58, supplemented with the cardboard box with the inscription 'I <3 speed limit':
“Overall, we were a bit confused by the problem because when we googled it, we found out that you don't need signs for a general speed limit because it applies the same everywhere anyway. But we thought to ourselves: What's the point of being stingy? If Mr. Wissing needs signs to implement what everyone wants; Then who are we to deny him this wish?”
