Speed limits to change in the Republic…

Don’t forget road signs in the Republic go metric from midnight tonight. As it is not possible to make a direct read over from one system to the other, there are growing concerns that some schools will have the speed limit rounded up, rather than down on the roads outside. More detail on the changeover at the Go Metric website. And don’t forget to change when you cross the border!

You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
