How fast can I drive on the highway?
If there are signs on the highway specifying a maximum speed, this is of course binding. There are usually higher speed limits on freeways than otherwise outside towns.
But this is precisely what tempts many drivers to stop looking at the speedometer and press down on the gas pedal. Therefore, speeding on highways often occurs at a higher rate than otherwise outside of town. In particular, if the velocity z.B. is particularly lowered by a construction site, z.B. at 60 or 80 km/h.
If there are no signs on the highway, normal passenger cars have a guideline speed of 130 km/h. However, this is only a recommended maximum speed, not a speed limit.
Drivers of heavy trucks are subject to a different rule: they must adhere to the maximum speed limit of 80 km/h if their vehicles weigh more than 3.5 tons. The same rules apply to lighter trucks as to normal cars. And buses are allowed to drive at a maximum of 100 km/h.
