our local council is responsible for setting local speed limits, but they must be clearly signed. If you have been given a speeding ticket always check that there were proper signs, but remember if there are no signgs and street ilghts then the highway codes set the speed limit at 30mph unless the signs say otherwise.
Throughout the UK, unless any signs state otherwise the speed limits are as follows:
|Built Up Areas||Single Carriageways||Dual Carriageways||Motorways|
|Motor Homes under 3.5 tonnes||30||60||70||70|
|Motor Homes Over 3.5 tonnes||30||50||60||70|
|Goods Vehicles under 7.5 tonnes||30||50||60||70|
|Goods vehicles over 7.5 tonnes||30||40||50||60|
