Speed limits on trucks should be reviewed too! Why are the trucks fitted with limiters set at 89km when on paper our limit is 80km. The NRA/RSA are a bunch of idiots (IMO) The state of the roads with inappropriate speeds is a joke. No consistency anywhere. Road markings/signage in the UK is like reading a good book, total pleasure to drive there.

    I dont think you understand the eu.regulates the speed signage in this country not our government. The same for speed limiters on trucks. Leo cant do a thing to change it.

    @Michael J Hartnett True, But the government here have set the speed limit for trucks at 80km on “paper” which contradicts EU regs. It would be up to Leo to change it to reflect EU regs
