I always find it hilarious that some people get right to the cones and then get radgy at people who don't let them in! The annoying thing is, someone will always let them in because they just aren't bothered, but it's good to see them wait.
Col, I have to say I appreciate the irony that someone from the West Midlands believes motorways ever move as fast as 30-40mph, I thought the motorways round Brum were permanent tailbacks
So, can anyone shed any light on the Highway Code stating that cones indicate a reduced speed limit regardless of posted speed limit signs?
At what cone-spacing does this come into force? 10-feet? 100 yards? An isolated cone on the hard-shoulder?
Just as streetlighting indicates a 30mph limit in the absence of a posted limit, what speed limit is applicable when cones are present, and does this limit over-ride any posted limits or do posted limits have precedence?
I'm being a tad facetious, but I'd gladly be proven wrong if it expands my knowledge.
