Speed limits in the UK vary according to the type of vehicle and type of road drivers. Driving just a few miles over the posted limit does make a difference, and could mean the difference between life and death. At 35mph you are twice as likely to kill a pedestrian as you are at 30mph (RoSPA – Royal Society of Prevention of Accidents).
Remember if there is street lighting then you are likely to be in a 30mph limit. Where there is street lighting but the limit is higher than 30mph there will be repeater signs giving the limit for this stretch of road.
Please note, that these speed limits do not supersede any limits set by speed limiter devices.
For further information regarding speed limiter devices see “Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Amendment No.5 Regulations 2005 (Road Traffic Act 1988)”
