Full Version: HGV speed limit

Just a query to a sign I have noticed recently. Whilst traveling on the A55 in Brumstons(sp) North Wales, I noticed that the dual carriageway in places states that the speed limit is 70mph, a clear figure 70 & not a national limit sign. The limit in my Transit on a DC would be 60 & an HGV over 7.5 tonnes, 50, so does this override the law? I doubt it.

I assume that knowing North Wales policy on taxation & indiscriminate persecution of the driver that this sign is a "honey trap" designed to catch the unwary van or lorry driver & I suspect the cameras are set to distinguish the size of vehicle to optimise their income/revenue.

I suppose the same goes for the times when a single carriageway, NSL suddenly becomes a 50 limit, to me that means no change, to an HGV driver it means "I wish, I'm still limited to 40!"

Just been reading the thread "NIP for doing less than the speed limit!?" . Pretty much answers all my questions

Is a 70 roundel in TSGRD?
