Can go faster? I was quite amused one day, following a camera partnership van that exited the motorway doing 60, then continued at the same speed around the 40 advisory bend. So, how are they decided and where is the guidance on who they apply to? I don't recall seeing anything.
So you expect drivers to slow to the advisory?
Nope. I try to expect drivers to do all sorts of things.
I was amused that 'advice' was, apparently, to be ignored by drivers as they saw fit, but that level of judgement was not allowed by that van's driver to others when conditions might be quite reasonable for them to be travelling in excess of a mandatory limit.
FWIW although the advisory sign is attached to the bend warning sign, there are other factors which might
(and it's only a guess) make the sign appropriate there. A little further along, the rh lane is lost and, until recently, there were regularly queues just out of site from the slip merging onto the 329M. But I don't know whether those factors are taken into consideration.
Anyone know? Or is it based on stopping sight distance, radius, camber, crossfall... ?
Your 'standard' is how you drive alone, not how you drive during a test.
