Quotes from that article:

Quote:
The minister's motto is "faster where possible, slower where necessary" [...]

The possibility of increasing the speed limit on other motorways will be examined over the coming months. [...]

As of 1 July 2012 the minister also intends to abolish 4 of the 5 80 km/h zones around the four biggest cities of the Netherlands, where the maximum speed limit will be increased to 100 km/h again.
Simply the right attitude! Learning from experiments, implementing consequences.
That minister isn't much of a greenie, is she?

It depends on which area you're talking about. They went full-speed ahead with wind farms, water transportation, rail freight and clean vehicle subsidies.

There is nothing much green about lowering speeds for the sake of lowering them. It is usually just an excuse to make car alternates such as trains or buses more competitives by slowing automobile traffic

I was really surprised, when I saw that kind of signpost on greek island Thassos with general speed limit in inhabitated and habitated area. Limits were the same as in case of mainland so I didn't get the point of that sign. Unfortunately I can't find any photo of that sign.

You should have a graduation after reading this while driving (from Poland)



And the old one from Slovakia (now the speed limit in inhabited area is 50 km/h and 24h lighting is mandatory)

How can there be two general speed limits on motorways/freeways?

Maybe 90 in towns and cities, similarly to Czech Republic?

From beautiful Moldova:



I also got surprised when I saw Romanian limits sign when exiting Craiova, maybe for people coming from the airport. But this doesn't happen, for example, in Bucharest airports. When it comes to my country, in Madrid I think it is posted too.

Placed at the M-11 Motorway when you leave the Madrid Airport (T1, T2 & T3). Notice that "Vía Rápida" as a road category ended in 2004.

These signs will need to be replaced soon as speed limit in roads with wide shoulders and/or more than 2 lanes will decrease to 90 km/h, 70 km/h for narrower roads and 50 km/h for roads with no center marking. I wonder how much time this signs will last since the ones standing now are more than 10 years old.
