"4. A speed limit sign shall be erected on the right side of the highway, facing approaching traffic, not more than 4.5 metres from the roadway, and the bottom edge of the sign shall be not less than 1.5 metres or more than 2.5 metres above the level of the roadway. R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 615, s. 4."
But yes I agree that the scenario as you describe is possible.
80 kilometres per hour on a highway, not within a built-up area, that is within a local municipality.
I'm not sure I follow. How could it not be enforced?ViperV-12 wrote:Then how can a speed limit reduction on a 4 lane road be legally enforced?
I'd agree with everyone in this thread. Signs only need to be posted on the right side of the road. If there's no signs, follow the default speed limit. There is no requirement for signs on the left side.
I'd agree with screeech.ViperV-12 wrote:I know on the 400 series roads they always sign on both sides during construction, I have to assume they do it there to meet some law/rule!!
I'd imagine it's a preference and something they teach through contractor safety meetings. Is there a law requirement? No, but there's nothing stopping them from providing an extra safe work environment. The workers who work beside moving vehicles probably prefer to have as much signage and warnings as possible. Technically, there only needs to be a sign on the right. As long as there's a sign on the right side, everything else is extra.
