Question:

Could you tell me what the correct placement position of speed limit signage should be on trucks/horse & trailer?

Answer:

Reg 293 applies. As far as I understand it just needs to be on the rear of the vehicle.

(2) (a) There may be displayed on the rear of a goods vehicle contemplated in subregulation (1) (a), a sign denoting that such goods vehicle is subject to a speed limit of 80 kilometres per hour, and such sign shall comply with the requirements of standard specification SABS 1329 “Retro-reflective and Fluorescent Warning Signs for Road Vehicles”, Part 3: “Signs other than triangles, chevron signs and abnormal load vehicle signs” with respect to the colours displayed on such sign.
(b) There shall be displayed on the rear of a motor vehicle referred to in subregulation (1)(b) a sign denoting that such vehicle is subject to a speed limit of 100 kilometres per hour, and such sign shall comply with the requirements of the standard specification referred to in paragraph (a) with respect to the colours displayed on such sign.
