Can anyone who drives the A5 PAST THE REDGATE JUNCTION with the A444 tell me the speed limits on this road?
OH we know it's NSL from Atherstone to the junction and beyond it (that way you pass the badly placed camera.
What about the other way?
OK great safety move blocking off the outside lane - stops some nutter sliding into the back end of another impatient nutter trying to cross the A5 from the A444.
So is this stretch technically a Dual Carriageway or not AND MORE IMPORTANTLY WHAT IS THE GATSO MONEYMAKER SET AT(According to info from the warks money grabbing partnership, it and others are set at NSL - Which means 40 for HGV).
WOULD IT NOT HAVE BEEN MORE SAFETY CONSCIOUS (AND LESS HYPOCRTICAL) TO HAVE SET A SPEED LIMIT ON THIS BIT LESS THAN NSL FOR EVERYBODY!

In my opinion revealing the speed limit to someone if it isn't signed is likely to be decalred illegal soon, based on the precedent from the Stuart Harding case :? It 'obstructs' the police from zapping people in exactly the same way.

actually the point that i meant to make was that if the speed limit into this junction from one way was 60 , it would appear to make sense to reduce the limit the other way to the same

PROVES THE WHOLE POINT ABOUT CAMERAS - DON'T IT ?,IT'S NOT ABOUT SAVING LIVES - A DECENT SIGN WOULD DO THAT - IT'S ABOUT RAISING CASH
