In Germany, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) is responsible for the freeway network. With more than 13.000 kilometers of freeway, the federal republic has one of the most modern expressway networks in the world. Repairs and road improvements are carried out by the respective federal state (they also know much better what is needed and where taxpayers’ money is best spent on road construction). Well-developed roads are safer for all road users.
