Europe Speed limits
Speed limits in Europe vary from country to country and are enforced to ensure road safety. Each country has its own regulations and signage to indicate speed limits. In urban areas, lower speed limits generally apply to ensure the safety of pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles sharing the roads. Rural areas and highways usually have higher speed limits, allowing for faster travel. It's important for drivers to be aware of and adhere to the specific speed limits in the country they are driving in, as well as any variations based on road conditions or weather. Strict enforcement and penalties for speeding violations aim to promote responsible and safe driving practices. Always observe and respect the posted speed limits to help maintain road safety in Europe.
