Reuters reported Friday that the government is set to pore over a series of draft proposals from the National Platform on the Future of Mobility to tackle climate change and reduce the country's greenhouse gas emissions. In the process, the new regulations could put speed limits on its famed "no limits" areas on the Autobahn.
