This could easily be a real motorway.

Anyway, about this speed limit in Bremen... I suppose they installed signs "speed limit 120 km/h" rather than not installing them and thinking 120 km/h is now the general speed limit on motorways anyway, I mean it's still Germany. And if there was for example speed limit 100 km/h and now it's 120, I guess they tell it with "speed limit 120 km/h" sign, or do they put sign "no limit any more", meaning now you can drive 120 km/h?

I guess they just added some 120km/h signs to the 7km of unlimited autobahn...otherwise it wouldn't be subject to the regulations.
But I don't know exactly.

They would have to put up 120km/h signs. On German Autobahns there is no speed limit unless stated otherwiese by speed limit signs. A single federal state cannot change that rule.

A lot of fuss just about new speed limits on a few kilometers of autobahn close to a city. Nothing unusual at all. It's just the green party in the state governement wanting to score some points by calling this a major breakthrough.

It disappeared suddenly. On a quiet dusk it was no longer there...

No, honestly: I don't get your question, Radi.
What should have happened? They just added some speed limit signs, thats it.

edit: the autobahnatlas-gallery has been updated, i also contributed something:

Wow - 156 traffic jams with 750km in Germany now.
That's a lot for a 4 day holiday...

Bizarre happening on the A1 near Hamburg:

10km long, 2 lines of trucks bumper to bumper waiting to merge from 2 to 1 lane.

At least it works there.

Normally most drivers (mainly car drivers) don't get the concept of Reißverschluß and merge to one line half a kilometre in advance.

I assume this is an error:

I doubt if it peaked 600km of traffic jams above the average around that time.

Does that help traffic or slow it down even more?
