Well the Hong Kong government is still using the same regulations they used before, which are similar but not exactly the same as in the UK. For example, green is used on motorways in HK and blue where green would be used in the UK.

There hasn't been a major overhaul in British signage either.

Why fix what isn't broken? It works quite well there I think.

are these photos hosted in China? They load incredibly slow, like many Chinese websites.

It is a Hong Kong website. I don't have issues loading them when I'm travelling around the region though.

Sorry if its been already asked (I am sure it was): how does switching road sides travelling from China to HK look like exactly? Do traffic lights and road signs guide you from the right to left? Somebody got a picture?

It is believed that they use a flyover.

There are a few Mainland China the registered cars that are capable of entering Hong Kong.

Of course, the HKSAR government has expressed concern in some instances (LHD car in RHD territory, ability of Mainland Chinese drivers to follow traffic rules and regulations, etc.)

This will be made more evident when the new bridge opens in a few years time

110 km/h is not bad as a speed limit in a highly urbanized city state.

Nice pics:

Btw two questions:
1) Any foreign tourists here have driven in Hong Kong?
and
2) How strict is this 110 km/h sign?



Is there allowable tolerance? And up to what extent? Can I got all the way up 180 km/h without being caught/fined/imprisoned?

I think there is many speed cameras on the expressways. You might be fined.

There are plenty of cameras along that stretch of highway to the airport. They are quite strict with the limits and the fines are : http://www.td.gov.hk/en/publications..._safe_drive__/
