The Netherlands will reduce the speed limit for the sake of the environment

Next year, the Netherlands will reduce the maximum permitted speed on motorways from 130 to 100 km / h. It is believed that this will help reduce the level of nitric oxide in the air.

The Dutch authorities have decided to reduce the speed limit on motorways from 130 to 100 km / h. It is reported that the rules will take effect in 2020. The new limit should help reduce the level of nitric oxide in the air.

The Prime Minister of the Netherlands, Mark Rutte, called the measure “terrible, but necessary.” Moreover, the speed limit to 100 km / h will be valid only in the daytime, and from 19 p.m. to 6 a.m. drivers will again be allowed to move at a speed of up to 130 km / h.

 If the law comes into force, the Netherlands could become a country with one of the smallest speed limits in Europe.
