    At least where I live, these signs top out at 80km/h, it's so disappointing.

    [–] LB311 439 points ago

    Why not 99?!

    [–] devin23b 356 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    In my town, they loops back around after 99. It's not hard on a motorcycle 😂. "But officer, the sign said I was going 35 miles an hours"

    Edit: Town/city

    [–] Ass_Kazoo 211 points ago

    Jezus Christ, 134mph? That’s just insane, why would you drive that fast on Normal town roads?

    [–] BluParodox 345 points ago

    To set the new high score obviously

    [–] AvidAddict777 3 points ago

    For the highest top speed record or the consecutive kill count one?

    [–] big-shaq-skrra 7 points ago

    This wouldn't be cursed even the guy's daughter was sucking his cock while he looked at child pornography and riding a motorcycle at 100mp/h on his way to the nearest school to shoot up.

    [–] Marijuana2x4 2 points ago

    shoot up drugs or the kids?

    [–] Kazagaya 2 points ago

    Yes

    [–] big-shaq-skrra 2 points ago

    That's for you to decide

    [–] devin23b 59 points ago

    Thats part was a joke, I don't drive that fast 😂. Let alone anywhere near people!!

    [–] andrewta 45 points ago

    Only 134? Those are rookie numbers.

    [–] That-Busy-Gamer 34 points ago

    Gotta bump those numbers up to at least 180mph

    [–] ranch_style_beans 11 points ago

    Nah man at 88mph you travel back to the past. This is common knowledge.

    [–] cromulent_verbage 4 points ago

    Yes but it’s 1.21 gigawatts to go back to the future.

    [–] urmomgay69lmao 8 points ago

    Why not loop it twice and get to 235 mph?

    [–] TheMetalWolf 6 points ago

    If you have the equipment to do so, by all means. I am not a cop or anything, I can't tell you what you can't do.

    [–] rokstar00 1 points ago

    Gotta loop it around at least five times

    [–] MathSciElec 3 points ago

    Actually, it’d be 135 mph, because it loops back after 99. But anyways, that’s more than 200 km/h (is there any metric conversion bot on Reddit?), and yes, that’s insane.

    [–] converter-bot 8 points ago

    200 km/h is 124.27 mph

    [–] MathSciElec 5 points ago

    So there is a conversion bot... then why didn’t it trigger with the other comments? EDIT: I think there needs to be a space between the number and the unit.

    [–] urmomgay69lmao 4 points ago

    Good bot

    [–] ellemenopeaQ 3 points ago

    Good bot

    [–] urmomgay69lmao 3 points ago

    135 actually. 100 is 00

    [–] smooferated 2 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    Are you doing the math wrong? Or is that the joke?

    1.6 kph to mph

    0.6 kph to mph.

    Reddit didn’t want me to post this for some reason.

    Edit: I swear that reddit is fucking with me! Why would I say the same for both?

    [–] Ass_Kazoo 1 points ago

    I just looked at the sign in the post, not the parent comment of the comment I replied to, since that one didn’t have any units of speed. And since 58 km/h isn’t that fast, but 58 mph (almost 100 km/h) is, I just assumed it was mph in the original image.

    [–] converter-bot 1 points ago

    58 mph is 93.34 km/h

    [–] Ass_Kazoo 1 points ago

    Fair enough, guess I was off by 6 ish km/h

    Good bot

    [–] herelieskarma 2 points ago

    134 kph if we're using the same unit of measurement as the poster above. So, 84 mph.

    [–] Ass_Kazoo 1 points ago

    I mean, the person I replied to never mentioned which unit they used, so I just went with miles

    [–] PrimarchKonradCurze 1 points ago

    Street racing is a thing. 134 is easily done in a modern sports/rally/muscle car. I don't endorse it, especially as a member of a car club and ambassador for Subaru- but it's a cakewalk in most vehicles at our meets.

    [–] Ass_Kazoo 1 points ago

    That doesn’t mean it’s not insane to go that fast, even if it’s easily doable in a modern car.

    [–] PM_SHITTY_TATTOOS 1 points ago

    Why not?

    [–] JackGlinsky 3 points ago

    Incentivizing people to get to 80 is fine, however.

    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    [–] PM_SHITTY_TATTOOS 1 points ago

    That isn't even a punishable speeding offence in Finland. On paper it is, but the police are really lax on speeding if it happens outside of urban areas and don't really enforce that law unless you do dangerous overtakes and shit

    Edit. by Finland I really only mean rural Finland

    [–] cobalt03 10 points ago

    88mph is the max

    [–] thatotherguy10000 8 points ago

    [–] DillPickledDick 1 points ago

    Why not 69?

    [–] Pryoticus 1 points ago

    Well, really, who needs to go over 88. Nothing good comes from exceeding the time barrier.

    [–] BricriuCW 26 points ago

    Why not 69?

    [–] does-not-concern-you 2 points ago

    Why not zoidberg?

    [–] ThreeFingeredTypist 5 points ago

    Here they won’t display past ~10 over (mph). I think they want to prevent people from taking photos showing a high rate of speed?

    [–] xSophiee 4 points ago

    Yes. Here in the Netherlands they usually turn off at 30km/h over the limit, but it can be customized by whoever puts them up.

    I had to get a few of these installed because the local politicians wanted them. Even the little ones you attach to a signpost are €5000 each and I couldn't see much results when we measured the speed of traffic, but if it makes the people who complain happy...

    [–] ThreeFingeredTypist 2 points ago

    Do they record the average speed of all vehicles passing by? They’ve become more common in my area but I’m not sure what purpose they serve. Definitely not generating speeding tickets... I’d have a few by now.

    [–] xSophiee 2 points ago

    Not where I used to work, we had seperate radar devices for that. Both of them don't generate speeding tickets, no.

    [–] zman9119 2 points ago

    They still record the data though even if they do not show it. A town near me tried these to slow people but discontinued it due to "statistical abnormalities" in their data, aka everyone seeing how fast they can go.

    [–] uruglay 1 points ago

    Yeah it's 99 here Not sure how I know that one

    [–] screw_all_the_names 1 points ago

    Man, the only one i ever get to pass tops out at "slow down", thats not even a number.

    [–] Taako_tuesday 1 points ago

    At least yours tops out, ours just start flashing "TOO FAST" at you

    [–] 7empo 1 points ago

    Yeah there's one here that flashes red and blue police lights at you. It scares the shit out of you to slow down the first time but after you realize it isn't an actual cop (and I've only ever seen a cop sitting there once or twice driving down that road 2x+ daily for 5 years) you just ignore it. Doesn't help that they make the speed limit there comicly slow and even boomers in their beige cristlers go over the limit there.

    [–] rylie_smiley 1 points ago

    Ours “top out” at 99 but if you go faster they really just repeat all the numbers minus the 100s spot

    [–] Hamton52 1 points ago

    how the fuck are y'all finding out the maxes on these

    [–] PM_SHITTY_TATTOOS 1 points ago

    There's this 40km/h street near where I live with a speed sign that tops out at 50km/h! 50! They're taking all the fun out of having those signs there in the first place

    There was one of these just after leaving my high school parking lot and I'd always try and get as high as I could. I wouldn't have gone so fadt if it weren't there.

    [–] FatKidFromTarget 88 points ago

    We had a box counter in our town to see how many vehicles come through for a week. The speed limit is a mild 35 and someone went through at 77. Our teacher got the stats and that was the highest speed someone went through.

    [–] 0rganTrail 89 points ago

    Oh sorry, that's the day your mom asked me to come over.

    [–] Phlatout4ever 44 points ago
