Those new arrows indeed look a bit too "weak", I don't mind the font though. Is there a general speed limit on Dutch motorroads, or there has to be the speed-limit sign to determine it? What's the usual speed limit on them?

motorroads are 100 unless otherwise posted. Most people still drive 80 like they drive 80 in Germany

Not on regular roads... It's really a disease, many Dutchmen don't know 100 is allowed on roads outside city limits. Luckily the problem mostly disappears after getting 20+ km from the border.

The other day I stumbled upon a Dutchman, who drove 65 km/h on a motorway.

Not so much a problem in Zeeland. Since we have only 2 freeways, many other roads are used as such instead with people aiming for 100kph wherever they can.

Of course I should mention we have the highest traffic death toll per capita in the country so all is not well...

i always drive 90 on that road it is difficult to stay on 70

but its a very dangerous road there were some accidents there because of the soft berm

Motorways are generally much safer than two laned roads. Since you have many two laned main roads in Zeeland it's indeed not much of a surprise.

Any motorway-related questions... It's a toll-free number, so if you want to try...
