What’s With the Speed Limit?

There are proposed changes the speed limit from 60km/h to 40km/h and from 100km/h to 80km/h in urban areas. This applies to everyone.
Right now, these changes are still only proposals. According to the Department of Transport, however, motorists can expect them to come into effect during the course of the year.
There is also no longer anything drivers can do to protest these changes. The comment period for the proposal was during 2015 and no further comments will be accepted.
While the limits have not yet been changed for motor vehicles this is not so for mid-sized commercial vehicles. A speed reduction for goods vehicles with a gross vehicle mass between 3 500kg and 9 000kg is already in effect. The proposal was added on 11 November 2016. The maximum speed limit is now 100km/h for these vehicles.
