That sign is actually in Tamboerskloof in my part of the world.

There's quite a few of them though; not sure which one exactly that one is... but the Deutsche Schule Kapstadt (located here) is where those signs are pointing to.

(EDIT: Ah, it's here.)

Does anybody know of minimum-speed signs higher than 100km/h?
Yep. In Italy they somewhere put 110km/h in left lane

There's 140 somewhere in Poland after a border crossing, and it's not the usual infoplate.

I think that you can't avoid all those mines at 120 km/h

I've just realised: this is the brand-new Iraqi way of making people drive correctly: if you go faster or slower than the maximum/minimum speed limits shown there you don't get a fine at home, but a mine will blow up. So you have to stick to drive legally

I think it's on the Milan-Bergamo stretch of A4, where the motorway widens to 4 lanes.

Leftmost lane, IIRC, has posted a minimum speed of 110 km/h, then 90 and 70 km/h.

I'll check next drive I drive there. Hopefully not soon, I hate Milan-Bergamo section of A4. Darn, I hate the whole A4.

i have checked on Street View, it doesn't exist anymore. now there is only sign which prohibits traffic for lorries in left lane.

(edit: i traveled there for the first time in 1997)

Hungarian M3: 120km/h posted, with general limit of 130km/h.



And the inverse: 130km/h posted, with general limit of 120km/h, on a Dutch motorway near Rotterdam:

The first is nothing exceptional, while the second is, because posted speed limits are usually lower or equal standard limits. In Italy you can't post a speed limit higher than the standard one.

It says Marg which means death in Persian (farsi) and therefore the sign says 1 km to death.

yeah. the name of the town is prnounced Merg. but that variation of مرگ is not common. so more than 90% would think of it as Marg.
here is an article in persian about the name of the village

Concerning the first, I was just thinking, "will those 10km/h make a security difference?"
Maybe there are already plans in the drawer to rise the general limit to 140 or 150km/h (let's hope ), then limits of 120km/h would make some difference.
For the second, this surprised me as well - but then we learnt that the general limit in NL will be 130km/h soon.
In Germany, there is some stretch limited to 140km/h, which also is problematic since that limit is higher than the general recommended limit of 130km/h.
