I have a question regarding the speed limit when a driver enters a on-ramp to enter a freeway and what the speed should be when he merges with the freeway? Also when a driver leaves the freeway onto a off ramp what should the speed be as there is a speed sign of 60km/h only 50 meters before the stop. Any information will be helpful.
The general speed limit on a Freeway is 120 km/h but the authorities have the right to change that depending on the circumstances on a specific road. The speed limit only applies after the freeway sign and sometimes the sign is only placed close to the junction.
Unfortunately all on-ramps do not allow for a 120 km speed due to the type of ramp or the distance to other traffic control signs.
As one is merging with the left lane traffic which is generally slower the average speed when entering a freeway is between 60 and 80 km ph. Remember trucks are not allowed to exceed 80 km ph and they travel in the left lane.
Hope this helps.
