If you were in a 30 and had not yet passed the sign for 50 I fail to see how that will help you. Is that what you’re saying?

Do we know if there was a traffic regulation order in place for this reduction from 50 to 30?

If the 50 sign had been a repeater sign, it may well be a different story. But the sign you photographed appeared to be out of use and facing the side of the road rather than traffic, so I think on this particular point you chances of success are pretty close to zero.

If the 50 sign was ahead of you when you were caught it is a total irrelevance really.
