Your answer suggests that, because of the times we live in, speeding and / or careless driving is now being officially treated as acceptable in built up areas where a lot of people walk, especially parents with young children. If so surely your attitude can only be described as flippant and shameful. We are not talking about emptier main highways where higher speeds could be understood. These are side streets where people actually live.

I am sorry we do not have suitable boards available immediately due to the increased reports previously mentioned (by way of explanation for the delay. Ultimately drivers are responsible for the speed they choose on any given stretch of road.
