    Driving in Europe - wrong info for Ireland?

    Driving in Europe - wrong info for Ireland? 9th Aug 18 at 1:44 PM
    Great idea, but seemingly let down by accuracy... is a correction required ASAP?

    ... I suggest you check this: 100kph = 62mph (not the 68 published)

    Perhaps too it is worth knowing that the 100kph also applies to dual carriageways - it cost me a fine (I was travelling at 70mph)

    Driving in Ireland
    Speed limits
    Motorways: 120kph (75mph)
    National roads: 100kph (68mph), or as indicated by road signs
    Local and regional roads: 80kph (50mph), or as indicated by road signs
    Built-up areas: 50kph (31mph)

    Perhaps you should have posted on the current "Discuss the Driving in Europe Guide" thread, as I assume that's what you are referring to.
