The experts of the German weather service are anyway sure, that today, particularly in the southwest of 39 degrees will be exceeded. “In the Saarland and in the Rhine valley, we scratch the 40 degree mark,” a DWD meteorologist on Tuesday.

Also the road surface of the (already working or damaged) concrete highways “suffers” under the permanently hot temperatures, with dangerous consequences for road users.

Especially for motorcyclists, this can quickly become a deadly danger. However, motorists should be warned “and as a matter of urgency to the speed limit,” said an ADAC spokesman, the recommended in addition to a greater distance from the Chance.
