There have been several cases of locals being vocal about speed limits being ignored - the police putting in a unit with camera and then catching the vocal resident breaking the limit! So definitely one rule for us, one for everyone else... There also does need to be more understanding of the fact that a limit allows variance of driving - there are roads around here where for stretches a 20 or 30 is sometimes not needed (open, no houses, no traffic), but at other times would make more sense - if we focused more on driving appropriately rather than blanket banning things it would be better (but I guess unlikely!)

This is exactly what happened at Ditchling in Sussex; which is one of those pretend villages where you can buy expensive jam but precious little else
