Speed limits by country

A road speed limit is the limit of speed allowed by law for road vehicles, usually the maximum speed allowed. Occasionally, there is a minimum speed limit.[1] Speed limits are commonly set by the legislative bodies of national or local governments.

World Speed Limits
Highest-posted speed limits around the world. Kilometres per hour are on the left and miles per hour on the right. (One or other is rounded in each case.)

Overview

The following tables show various jurisdictions' default speed limits (where applicable) that apply to different types of vehicles travelling on three different types of road. Actual speed limits may range beyond these values. Speeds are listed in kilometers per hour unless otherwise stated. The enforcement tolerance is specified in km/h or percentage above the stated limit. For the United Kingdom and the United States, the speed limit is listed in miles per hour.[fn 1] Germany, with its Autobahns, is the only country without a general speed limit on its highways.[2] The Isle of Man is the only jurisdiction without a general speed limit on rural two-lane roads.

In 2017, most of all IRTAD countries have a default speed limit in urban areas of 50 km/h, with various lower speeds, for instance, in the Netherlands, 70% of the urban roads are limited to 30 km/h.[3].

Australia 50 for un-signed residential roads and some built up areas. 60 for major roads. 70 and 80 km/h limits are occasionally used for major arterial roads which have more than one lane in each direction.[fn 3] Generally 80-110 km/h depending on the conditions for that road. In remote parts of Australia, such as outback Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia, 110-130 km/h speed limits are used.

For learner drivers and probationary drivers in certain states, speed limits between 80 km/h and 100 km/h apply as a maximum along all roads where the posted limit is equal or higher.

100–110 80–100 trucks and road trains only 80–110[fn 4] in Victoria 3 km/h strictly enforced by fixed speed camera and at the discretion of Victoria Police

7 km/h over in Western Australia

Generally 10% over speed limit in other states, but a ticket will be given for less when detected by fixed speed camera. However, new laws may see the drivers issued with a ticket for exceeding 2 km/h over the posted speed limit. Heavy penalties apply for speeding in Australia.

  12. ^ 130 km/h is the recommended maximum speed on motorways, as indicated by a square blue sign (round blue sign = minimum speed). Many sections of the German motorway network are now covered by speed limits, usually ranging from 80 to 130 km/h (140 km/h as speed limit is being tested in Lower Saxony -some politicians are against it, because 140 km/h is over the recommended maximum speed, depending on local conditions (i.e., frequent traffic, terrain, etc.). It is usual for drivers involved in crashes who were exceeding the 'recommended' speed limit to be held to be at least partly at fault, regardless of the circumstances of the crash, and insurance companies have the right to withhold payment. Already more than 50% Autobahns now have a (partially variable) speed limit. Vehicles also must be able to go faster than 60 km/h.

  13. ^ Speed limits have been signed in kilometres per hour since the 1980s. The unit "km/h" was signed below the number before the late 1990's.
  14. ^ Type restriction is not prescribed for private motor vehicles or motor cycles as opposed to goods vehicles and buses. The default speed limit is 50 km/h unless signed otherwise.
  15. ^ No default speed limit is mandated on expressways. The lowest signposted limit on main lines is 70 km/h, which is the norm for examples from the 1970's and 80's usually found in urban areas. More commonly, however, 80 km/h is signed. The rural standard is 100 km/h and is signed whenever practicable in the New Territories. The highest limit, 110 km/h, is only used on the island of Lantau.
  16. ^ Buses, as well as goods vehicles with a laden weight of 7.5 tonnes, are limited to 70 km/h, minibuses to 80 km/h. Most buses and all minibuses are mechanically restricted. The restriction for goods vehicles is not enforced by the police.
  17. ^ The default speed limit in the territory is 50 km/h. 30 km/h may be signed on less used roads built on rough terrain.
  18. ^ Iceland does not have expressways/motorways in the traditional sense. There is only one true 'expressway', road 41(Reykjanesbraut), which is built to motorway standard most of its route – grade separated, 2 lanes each direction. However it does not have a higher speed limit. Other such expressways are located within Reykjavík city limits, and the maximum speed is 80 km/h.
  19. ^ a b 100 km/h is default limit on all National Routes regardless of design standard when local limits do not apply; regional and minor routes have an 80 km/h limit. All limits are signposted either way. *On urban motorways such as the M50 (100km/h or 80 km/h) or M1 (as low as 80km/h in places) or in tunnels (80km/h).

  22. ^ Some two lane Federal highways are posted at 110 km/h provided they have a paved shoulder.
  23. ^ In the Netherlands, only cars or vans pulling a trailer with a total weight of less than 3.5 metric tons (with the trailer weighing less than 750 kg) are allowed to drive 90 km/h, except where a lower speed limit is posted. Vehicles of other categories (i.e. trucks), as well as cars or vans with a trailer weighing more than 3.5 tons are restricted to 80 km/h.
  24. ^ This is because the 3% are rounded up. 3% of 136 km/h is 4.08, which after rounding up results in a tolerance of 5 km/h. Thus after correction for tolerance, a measured speed of 136 km/h results in a fine for driving 131 km/h, or 1 km/h over the speed limit.
  25. ^ 50 km/h in built-up areas during the day (from 5 till 23) and 60 km/h at night (from 23 till 5)

  30. ^ a b c Sweden introduced new speed limits in 2008/2009, where the regular limits 30, 50, 70, 90 and 110 km/h are complemented by 40, 60, 80, 100 and 120 km/h. Please see this document for more information In general speed limits of 110 and 120 km/h apply on freeways only (4 lanes). However speed limits of 110 km/h remain on fence-divided 2–3 lane highways in the northern part of the country. Parts of the east-coast European Route E4 north of the city of Gävle towards Haparanda is an example of this. All other 2–3 lane highways previously zoned at 110 km/h have been lowered to either 90 or 100 km/h respectively.
  31. ^ In June 2010, a motion has taken by the Turkish Grand National Assembly to increase the speed limit in double lane highways in rural areas from 90 km/h to 110 km/h. New law is expected to be valid from July 2010.
  32. ^ New speed limits in Ukraine effective since 1 January 2018.
  33. ^ a b UK roads only have three blanket limits for non-towing private vehicles (separate from those for trucks, buses and towing vehicles). 30 mph (48 km/h) in towns (including dual carriageways), 60 mph (97 km/h) on non-urban single carriageway roads, and 70 mph (113 km/h) on all dual-carriageway roads and motorways (including rare single-carriageway motorway sections, and slip roads), which apply without needing signs. Any other limits in force must be clearly posted. For example, 20 mph (32 km/h) limits are sometimes seen in residential estates and city-centre areas and outside primary schools, whereas 40 mph (64 km/h) limits are common on major urban through-routes, including many 2-lane single-carriageway residential urban roads, and usually come with both zone start/end signs and small repeaters (with 30 mph areas also usually having start/end signs for clarity, but rarely repeaters; 60/70 sections tend to be marked with struck-circle "de-restriction" signs, but very occasionally zone-start and repeaters for clarity or preserving the higher limit on limited-access routes that would otherwise technically class as an urban road). Higher limits in urban areas are usually reserved for limited-access dual carriageways. Lower limits are common on sections of dual carriageways, even on some major intercity routes. Permanent, mandatory lower motorway limits are rare but do exist, e.g. 50 mph (80 km/h) is generally applied on tidal flow sections, in tunnels, some bridges or sections of substandard alignment and junction structure. Variable, legally-enforceable limits for traffic control (including hard-shoulder running at up to 50~60 mph) are being gradually introduced (at time of writing, on sections of the M25, M42 and M6) and may go as low as 20 mph (32 km/h) in 10 mph steps. Any other speed signs on motorways are usually advisory-only but may be used for apportioning liability for accidents.
  34. ^ In general, non-urban, all-purpose (i.e. not limited to motor traffic, except in the case of "A(M)" roads) dual carriageways are subject to the same 70 mph limit for light vehicles as motorways, but lower limits (50 and 60 mph) are in place for heavy trucks, buses/minibuses and towing vehicles. These roads take the place of motorways where a high-traffic trunk route is required but building a motorway would be impractical for reasons of cost and/or geography. For instance, steeper or more winding alignments and less forgiving junctions than would be found on motorways necessitate lower limits for some stretches – as low as 30 mph in some cases, e.g. around Penmaenbach on the A55 in Wales, or a less severe 60 mph restriction on some parts of the A38 and A45.
  35. ^ a b Generally in the UK, lorries over a laden weight of 7500 kg are mechanically or electronically speed-limited to 56 mph (90 km/h) because of overriding European law, even on motorways where they are legally permitted (under UK law) to travel at 60 mph. Some heavier machines are further limited to 53 mph (85 km/h) for the same reasons, and carry warning plates to this effect. Some lorries or trucks with a laden weight between 3500 kg and 7500 kg are also speed-limited to 56 mph (90 km/h) on all roads. On non-motorway roads, heavier trucks are legally limited to 50 (single-carriageway) or 60 (dual carriageway) mph (80 and 97 km/h) except in scotland where they are limited to 40 (single-carriageway) or 50 (dual carriageway (as of 6 April 2015), Medium trucks and buses/commercial van-based minibuses to 50 and 60 mph (80 and 97 km/h), though the latter are further subdivided: some are allowed a motorway speed of 60 mph (97 km/h) and others 70 mph (113 km/h). Light commercial vans are subject to the same 60/70/70 mph limits as private cars and motorcycles, and towing cycles/cars/vans subject to medium truck 50/60/60 limits.
  36. ^ The lower speed limit in large inner-cities may be as low as 45 mph (72 km/h) for example on I-90/94 which goes through Chicago. In many urban areas, controlled-access highways typically take 5 – 15 mph off the speed limit. For example, in Cleveland and Cuyahoga county, the speed limit is 60 mph (97 km/h). Once out of the county, the speed limit returns to 65 mph (105 km/h).
  37. ^ a b The state of Hawaii posts a 55 mph (89 km/h) speed limit on many Interstate highways.
  38. ^ One toll road near Austin, TX has a speed limit of 85 miles per hour. 85 MPH Highway Opens
  39. ^ There are no specific speed limits in Venezuela. The standard within towns is 60 km/h and from 80 to 120 km/h in highways however it varies depending on road conditions therefore speed limits are set by transit authorities through signals.
