Germany mulls plan to partially privatize Autobahn

Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble from Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative CDU party has put forth a plan to partially privatize the Autobahn network of roads across the country, according to a report by Der Spiegel on Saturday.

“We don’t want the Autobahn to become a profit-oriented project for banks and insurance, off of the costs to drivers,” said Green party politician Oliver Krischer.
