(1) The speed-limit applying to a driver for any length of road in a speed-limited area is the number of kilometres per hour indicated by the number on the area speed-limit sign on a road into the area, unless another speed-limit applies to the driver for the length of road under another rule of this Part.Note: Although an area speed-limit sign on a road into a speed-limited area may indicate a speed-limit of 60 kilometres per hour, a particular length of road in the area may have a school zone sign indicating a 40 kilometres per hour speed-limit for that length of road.Note: "Length" of road is defined in the dictionary.
(2) A "speed-limited area" is the network of roads in an area with:(a) an area speed-limit sign on each road into the area, indicating the same number, and(b) an end area speed-limit sign on each road out of the area.
(3) In subrule (2) (a) and (b):
"road" does not include a road-related area.Note: "Road-related area" is defined in rule 13.
Note: There are a number of other permitted versions of each of these signs-see the diagrams in Schedule 3.
Note: An area speed-limit sign or end area speed-limit sign may have a different number on the sign-see rule 316 (4).
