Turkey plans to increase speed limits on highways​

Authorities are considering increasing speed limits on Turkey’s highways, starting with newly built roads, Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu has said.

Currently, the speed limit for passenger cars on highways is 120 kilometers per hour (km/h). It is 100 km/h for buses and 90 km/h for trucks.

“Authorities tolerate up to 132 km/h speed on highways, and we can increase the speed limit by 20 km/h for passenger cars,” Soylu said.

Are we only talking about motorways here?

It only says highways.......Not sure if anything other than motorways have a speed limit of 120km/h around us, not that's signed anyways.

140kph should be safe with modern cars on modern motorways. 90 kph is very low on many of today's dual carriageways too.
