What is the speed limit and the weight or mass limit (if you know it) on the street on which you live?

Sometimes I dream I’m asking questions on here at night.  This is one of those dreamed up at night questions.

The rest of the dream made no sense because I was sitting in Cafe 80’s from Back to the Future Part II while asking this.  I was also having a strawberry milkshake with sliced bananas in it.  The Android robot was sitting next to me.  He was having an Oreo milkshake.

I know it was just a dream but I kind of feel guilty about being on my iPhone while sitting next to the Android mascot.

    The general speed limit on NYC streets is 25 miles per hour.

    Thirty-five mph.  The speed limit in the circle parking area is 5 mph, which is ignored; there is no way to enforce such a ridiculous posted limit.  I've never known a court to uphold a speed limit under 15 mph.  I saw one thrown out that was 8 mph in the parking area of a ball field.

    40 km/h
    12 t

    My street doesn't have a speed limit sign. The speed limit is 40 km/h on city streets that don't have speed limit signs. My street does have a weight limit sign. It is 12 tonnes. That's for the weight on the truck's registration, not the truck's actual weight.

    its posted at 15 mph (due to the steep dip and sharp corners).  Of course, "speed limits" in california are merely suggestions.   Most people drive 35 mph to 45 mph; although some insist at going 55+ mph to try and get "air"  through the dip.  These idiots either end up in living room of the house at the top of the hill or into a nearby fence.

    They fly and die while high and you will never find out why. There are just a certain percentage of idiots who always do that being usually under 25 years old I guess. This post was edited by CosmicWunderkind at May 13, 2023 11:15 PM MDT

    Our street is posted at 30 mph. I don't know what the weight limit is, there's no sign with that info.
