wrong name

  • I wonder if there exists any minimal speed by law. In Germany it does not exists, only the vehicle has to be constructed to reach a certain speed on a flat road, but even on the "Autobahn" (motorway) you are allowed to drive slower than 60 km/h. I would suggest to either change the definition or the name. Sorry, was too fast. --Skyper 10:29, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
It does not exist generally on the "Autobahn" but a "minspeed" does exist in Germany and is expressed with Z.275 according to StVO (German citation from the law: "Ge- oder Verbot, Fahrzeugführer dürfen nicht langsamer als mit der angegebenen Mindestgeschwindigkeit fahren, sofern nicht Straßen-, Verkehrs-, Sicht- oder Wetterverhältnisse dazu verpflichten. Es verbietet, mit Fahrzeugen, die nicht so schnell fahren können oder dürfen, einen so gekennzeichneten Fahrstreifen zu benutzen.") -- Dieterdreist 11:09, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Alleged double meaning

The longstanding definition states that minspeed has 2 meanings: a minimum speed you may not drive slower if it is possible to drive at least at this speed and secondly, the minimum speed a vehicle has to be able to drive, regardless whether it will drive that slow or not (otherwise it would be case 1 anyway). Now while these definitions are fine to describe the legal situation, I wonder if case 2 is something that actually is prescribed somewhere on the planet (and not already implied in other tags like highway=motorway. Can anybody give an example? Would there be support to retag the second case to something distinguishable and use the minspeed key only for actual minimum speeds? --Dieterdreist (talk) 07:02, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
