Irish speed limits recently went metric and in an effort to ease people into the kph mindset an add campaign was launched. It included a tv add where a young woman was driving a truck along a motorway; nothing to get upset about there you say. What struck me as strange however was the trucks speedometer which showed, 120kph. This is very questionable as the speed limit for vehicles over 3 tonnes (lol so much for going metric) is 80kph. They popped it up on the screen; the poor speedometer was nearly maxed out. So why would an add designed to show people being aware of the new speed limits include this horrendous breach of motoring law I'll never know.
While investigating a possible answer for this anomaly I came across the above image which I presume depicts a genuine sign on the M11. Now what could be wrong with this you ask; nothing I say but its laughably misleading. You would imagine (if you weren't from Ireland or had a vulgar lack of interest in Irish geography) that the motorway led to Rosslare or at least brought you fairly close to Rosslare. Click on the it above to see why its ridiculous.
This even shocked me when I made it. New York's total urban area is roughly the same length of motorway Ireland doesn't have!
