MiDAS signs =/= advisory limits
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. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 11:16, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
