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!
