In July 2012, Schultz had decided to increase the speed limit on the A10 to 100 kilometers per hour from 80 kilometers per hour.

According to the court, Schultz did not consider the health risks and emissions associated with high speed traffic.

The court asked Schultz to come up with a new decision in next six weeks.
