Has speed limit been changed?

| 30/05/2018

What is the speed limit on Eastern Avenue? It used to be 30 mph, but now the limit on West Bay Road has been reduced from 40 mph to 25 mph I am not sure if it has changed, too, and there are no road signs.

Ask Auntie, CNS Local Life, Caymanian statusAuntie’s answer: Well, this is an easy and straightforward question to answer. An official with the National Roads Authority confirmed that the speed limit on Eastern Avenue has not changed; it remains at 30 mph.

Let’s hope that motorists abide by this limit or the police catch those who don’t.

    With all due respect, why have speed limits at all? No one seems to pay them much heed. Many people seem to think that they can drive the same speed wherever they go. 30 in a 40 zone, 30 in an active school zone, 30 in a 25 zone. No signals either. Lets not even talk about roundabouts.
    You shouldn’t get out of your car at the end of a drive feeling lucky to have survived again.

    To avoid the confusion which prevails speed limits island wide should be as follows:

    All built-up areas, including 7 Mile Beach Road, 30 mph.
    Out of town roads up to Pease Bay, 40 mph
    After Pease Bay, but excluding North Side, East End, and Breakers, 50 mph.
    Problem solved!

    Doesn’t matter, the times I’ve been on that road doing 30, I’ve been the slowest person on the road.

    If I remember correct – in any given situation where there are not any marked speed limit signs, It must be assumed that the speed limit is 25mph.

    I think that the problen on Cayman roads are not the speed limits only , we have many more things that are contributing to the problems we have on the roads . Until we can see and understand the importance of the issues, we would always have these problems on the roads/highways.

    Do anyone know what is the causes for all of what is happening on the roads today ?
    When we ALL can answer the question and stop doing those things , the roads will be alot safer .

      What the hell are you saying Premier. Please re-read your post and confirm if it makes sense to you.

        I think he is saying that the standard of most driving in Cayman is abysmal.

        Why don’t you re-read the comment and try to understand what I am saying . Do you want me to put it in blunt straight forward terms ? Comebacksmartass.

    The speed limits are all posted. The big signs indicate a change in the limit as you pass them. The small ones just remind you of the current limit. There is no real mystery here.

    30 is probably fine on Eastern Avenue as there are traffic lights half way through. Also, you dont have tourists crossing the street as you do on West Bay Road, nor do you have the center lane that causes issues on WBR.

    South Church Street used to be 30 and is still marked 30. Is that meant to be lowered now that West Bay Road has been?
    How about Walker’s Road? Harbour Drive?

    omg seriously?
