Map of the new speed limits in Tyrol and Salzburg:



Meanwhile more protests against the new 100-IGL are on the rise.

I'm going to Vienna via the Czech Republic in a few weeks, with these new speed limits in Austria, the route via CZ from several parts of the Netherlands is actually faster.

I don't think so. Going via Nürnberg, Passau there is only a a possible veriable 100 IG-L at Linz. The rest of the stretch in Austria is 130.

No I actually checked it on 6 different days now. However the distance from the North of the Netherlands to Vienna is longer via the A3 in Germany than via the route Czech Republic, it used to be faster (maybe sometimes still is). Now if you include traffic (considering the wintersport traffic and christmas break etc.), the A3 isn't so great. The route via Prague is ranked faster by both Google and Apple maps for a few days now.

An environmental sticker (abgasklassenplakette) is obligatory in Vienna from 1 January 2015. It includes delivery vans as well. Euro 1/2 engines are also banned.

Does it apply for passenger cars, or just commercial/cargo ones?

Alle Fahrzeuge der Klasse N, unabhängig vom Fahrzeuggewicht - auch Kleintransporter, Geländewagen, Fiskal-LKW ..., wenn sie als LKW bzw. Sattelzug- und in Wien auch als Sattelkraftfahrzeuge zugelassen sind.

Class N. So no passenger cars except for 'Geländewagen' which stands for SUV if I'm not mistaken.

It only includes SUVs for freight transport (nearly none).

Klasse N: Kraftfahrzeuge zur Güterbeförderung

Vienna might be the first city, perhaps about ten years from now, to completely ban vehicles using primordial fuels leaving only electric vehicles allowed in the city.

I wonder if pollution really decreases of an appreciable amount by decreasing the speed limit from 130 to 100 or if it's still a "drop in the ocean".
One may considers that the circulating fleet is muuuuch greener now than 20 or 30 years ago and it will get greener and greener as long as older vehices go to the scrapyard.

Of course it does. But this is a piece of information you can find anywhere on the internet.

Anyway, what is the purpose of an Autobahn if you are sticked to drive like on a 2-lane rural road?

Still, the Autobahn is much safer than the other roads.
> Absurd speed limits so as to increase fines revenues ?
