Hi Greg,

the city speed limit in Germany is 50 km/h, so my guess is that this band helps to see with one look whether you are "in a safe" speed, as the first few kilometer above will not get you stopped plus the fact that the speedometer indicates a slightly higher speed than actually driven.

Its just my guess, though, but I believe the last VW I drove in
Germany had that band, too.
