New speed limits Netherlands

Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere. I was updating my TomTom and got the message that from mid-March 2020 (oops, older than I thought but I'll just post anyway as so few of us will have had direct experience last year) the max speed on motorways throughout the country will be reduced to 100km/hr from 6am till 7pm.

It was apparently introduced with reluctance and nothing to do with safety. Prime Minister Mark Rutte was reported as saying it was a "rotten," or even as a "shitty measure." The entire transition is expected to cost around Ä19 million ($21million) including VAT https://www.dw.com/en/netherlands-re...mit/a-52796095

Having had a year of it I wonder is it judged to have been successful.

The French reduction from 90kmph down to 80kmph on rural roads is still in force. Although speeds are gradually creeping up unless a radar camera is forecast.

Ray.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

Macron is up for re-election next year AFAIK, he has been looking indecisive and at times, downright foolish with some of the things that he has said and his ever-changing rant about AstraZeneca.

He introduced it as a trial for two years and at the end of that time allowed Departments to make up their own mind as to retain 89 kph or go to 90 kph, the only stipulation being that they must demonstrate other measures to increase safety.

Some Departments have stuck with 80, others gone back to 90, others have adopted both for different raids. Trouble is no one knows what the speed limit is unless it is clearly displayed....

I suspect he will ditch it next year to try to gain favour.....

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I bet there'll be a French person mixed up in it somewhere, you mark my worms.

Itís not a bit of a mess, itís bloody ludicrous in the extreme (but typically French)

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
