Increased, varying speed limits studied for many Japan streets

Date Posted: 2009-04-30

Motorists may soon see the first speed limits changes in Japan in two decades as the National Police Agency defined plans for revising the way it sets speed rules.

The Agency says it plans to apply new standards that take into specific traffic conditions on each of the nationís roads and highways. The plan promises to raise speed limits from 60kph to 80kph on virtually all roads. National Police Agency says the revisions would be the first since 1989, and could go into effect this year.

While ordinary roads are expected to see limits increased, the National Police Agency is also studying whether to reduce the speed limit to 30kph on smaller streets in residential areas. Current rules by individual Public Safety Commissions have restricted driving speeds to 60kph on regular roads and 100kph on expressways.
