What is the Friggin Speed Limit?
What is the Friggin Speed Limit?

Here is a question I have not been able to answer from searching the inter web.

Our house is located in the rural area outside of the incorporated city limits. 2 Lane road.

It used to be posted 25 in town and then as you left to head out my way it was posted 35 and then not posted but known to be 50 mph. (We are in Ohio and the law says that un-posted non-divided is 50)

Now they have added another zone where it used to go from 35 to 50. They dropped in posts for 45mph. But there are no begin or end speed limit signs.

Anyone know how much distance you have to go with no signs before you can assume it is 50 again?

Just drive faster until you see flashing lights behind you then pull over and ask that guy. He will know the answer.

A long time ago, I used to pull over for those flashing lights, but then they would give me a ticket, so I don't stop any more.

Make a call to your local police. I'd be surprised if they know the answer!

It really depends on the day of the month, and whether the officer has made his quota.

I figure until the first side road where you could plausibly argue you turned onto the 'unmarked" road.

Its only 5mph, really worth worrying about?

I live out in the sticks, cops hardly ever come out here, mostly only when you call them and that takes about 20 minutes.

Or, move to West Texas, where the speed limit on I-10 is 80MPH.

Of course, when you finish driving, you find yourself living in West Texas.

All I know is in Memphis, TX they used to used to have a speed limit sign hidden behind a tree, and then they would fine you out the wazoo. The last time I got a ticket on an unmarked road I went to court (early 90's) and was told it was my responsibility to know what the speed limit was if there was no signage!
