Unlike most European countries, miles are used for posting the speed limit in the UK. Around schools and highly pedestrian zones, 20 mph is permitted, while 30 mph is the limit for the rest of the city. Country roads allow between 60 and 70 mph, while freeways (called motorways in England and marked with an “M”) permit up to 70 mph.
