I'll go with 55, despite my gut telling me it's too high for a road like this in New England.

Nice! Sorry for the late response; I'm on vacation, so I'll let someone else post the next one.

Side question:

It seems that the rules for this game require posting pictures of roads with a speed limit that is divisible by 5 in miles/hr or in km/hr.

For those posting examples that are outside the US, how common are roads posted in km/hr that are divisible by 5, but not also divisible by 10? 

80, 90, and 100 km/hr are very common speed limits for highways.  Are there any examples of 85 or 95 anywhere?

^ Speed limits ending in 5 are rare to non-existent in Canada, although they are more common in some other countries. I recall a 35 km/h one in China in particular that had us all stumped for quite a while.

We've had this issue before. For speed limits in km/h, users have to indicate whether it ends in 5 or 0.

It seems that some places in Canada have limits ending in 5, but I believe most/all provinces technically require limits to end in 0, so you could argue they aren't real, enforceable limits.

That's nuts. No way should that be a 35.

Here is the next one.

This one's right. 45mph, right here:
https://www.google.com/maps/@40.1522528,-79.849074,3a,22.3y,312.55h,90.22t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sG0Qe5G242U87Kb40VeSA_w!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
on a spur of I-70 in Pennsylvania. Severely underposted, IMO.

Yikes. I guess it's not a freeway at least.



Here is my submission. km/h ending in 0:

Not 60 either.

Disregard, it is 60! Nicely done. I did not notice that there was actually an increased limit between the top of the distant hill and where the camera car is. The hill in the background is 50, but the area in the foreground is 60. So I guess, retrospectively, both of those would have been correct in my book :-D.
