Speed limits changed for commercial vehicles

From April 6th 2015 the speed limits changed for commercial vehicles.

The speed limit from 40 MPH to 50 MPH unless signs indicate a lower speed limit.

The speed limit on dual carriageways has now increased from 50MPH to 60MPH unless signs indicate a lower speed limit.

Remember that the vehicle limiter setting should not be overrun, as this is an offence in its own right.

*Speed limits in Scotland remain unchanged, so don’t be caught out north of the border!

Remember: Although the speed limit has been raised, you should always drive to the conditions, that includes road topography: Drive at a speed that you feel in control at all times. Drive at a speed, that you can safely stop in the distance you can see to be clear. Let’s all get the job done efficiently, but safely. Stay safe
