Merge Richtgeschwindigkeit?[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
Merge done. -- P 1 9 9 • TALK 17:57, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

The concept is roughly the same, Richtgeschwindigkeit only covers its specific implementation (and effects) in Germany. --Mormegil (talk) 10:50, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Support. A merger makes sense. --Komischn (talk) 02:22, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
I support a swift redirect of Richtgeschwindigkeit and merge. The German case is exceptional but would be more accessible here. Synchronism (talk) 08:14, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
Support. Nothing seems to have happened, so I will do it some time after 7 days from now. SimonTrew (talk)

MiDAS signs =/= advisory limits[edit]

They are variable mandatory speed limits such as seen on other variable matrix boards in e.g. Germany and are treated as such. They have the red circle around the number to indicate this, and furthermore aren't often used for other purposes except marking "lane closed" in case of incidents (effectively a 0 mph speed limit ;). The current text is somewhat superflurous and misleading...

Ditto the signs used for ATM on other UK motorway such as M42 and M6 - again they are specifically VSL displays, not message boards of the old-school central reservation type. A dedicated VMS is typically included on the same gantry to serve this purpose. 193.63.174.10 (talk) 11:16, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
