We have been down this road before (sorry about the pun!). The last government promised an audit as well http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/motors/2011/0119/1224287847714.html but nothing happened.
What about “temporary” limits imposed for roadworks? Sligo County Council for example, had 50kph signs on the N15 for 2 months but no work took place

    Thats an interesting point. I was at a coarse a number of years back & we where told that road works cannot by law lower the speed limit by more than 10kmh & that the speed signage must be of the same apearance as normal road.signs & they most get permission to lower the limit & this has a time limit which they can extend but they must apply again for this. Apparently some speeding convictions were struck out over this but im unsure of the full details
