So which one is it? Motorists are stunned by Sydney street with THREE different speed limits
- Riordan Street in Alexandria, Sydney, has three different speed signs
- The speed on the road warns 60 km / h, while two signs indicate 50 km / h and 40 km / h
- Motorists kept scratching their heads at what speed they had to drive on the street
A street in Sydney with three different marked speed limits has left motorists bewildered.
The Alexandria three-lane street, in the inner suburbs of the city, has a limit of 60 km / h, clearly painted white on the road.
But only a few meters from the marking on the road there is a red light camera with warning 50 and below that a roadwork sign of 40.
A photo of the confusing signage was posted on Reddit and led to a heated debate about which speed limit was the right one to follow.

& # 39; S ** t is ridiculous and they intend to remove the speed cameras … & # 39; wrote a person.
& # 39; It is 100% revenue-increasing. The sign actually forces a delay in black spots, no sign simply means more money. Of course no one should accelerate, but we do not live in that dimension, & another person wrote.
& # 39; Do 40 … but damn boys, get your ** s together! & # 39; wrote a third.
According to the NSW traffic rules, the maximum speed is maintained if the numbers are surrounded by a red ring, thus excluding the 60 km / h on the road.
However, with two different signs on the side of the street, many were still amazed.
& # 39; So the numbers on the road mean virtually nothing in the eyes of traffic laws. But technically speaking, the 50 character is after the 40 character. So it would be 50, & a user commented.
While many were confused by the signs, others have accused the government of increasing revenues
Another suggested that the speed limit may have changed temporarily due to an upcoming construction site.
& # 39; Where a speed limit sign for road works is displayed, the speed limit is enforceable and must be adhered to. When approaching road works, pay attention to all signs and follow signs with reduced speed & # 39 ;, is the RMS website.
In the meantime, others joked about the freedom the multiple speed signs gave.
& # 39; Summarize all figures and do 150 km / h, & # 39; a person joked.
& # 39; So you know the minimum and the maximum … what's better than that … & # 39; another said.
