Speed-limit in a speed-limited area

    (1)     The speed-limit applying to a driver for any length of road in a speed-limited area is the number of kilometres per hour indicated by the number on the area speed-limit sign on a road into the area, unless another speed-limit applies to the driver for the length of road under another rule of this Part.

Example of another speed-limit

Although an area speed-limit sign on a road into
a speed‑limited area may indicate a speed-limit of 60 kilometres per hour, a particular length of road
in the area may have a shared zone sign indicating
a 10 kilometres per hour speed-limit for that length
of road.


Length of road is defined in the dictionary.

    (2)     A speed-limited area is the network of roads in an area with

        (a)     an area speed-limit sign on each road into the area, indicating the same number; and

        (b)     an end area speed-limit sign on each road out of the area.

    (3)     In subrule (2)(a) and (b)—

"road" does not include a road related area.


Road related area is defined in rule 13.
