    When does the speed limit change? At the posted sign? Or when the sign can be seen? It has always been my understanding it is at the physical sign that posts the speed limit

    Thank for any help!

    At the sign. At least that is my understanding and I believe it is the same for all states in the US.

    At the sign. I know in at least one state police have to be a certain distance away from the speed limit sign to post their radar guns – 500 feet or so. That way, they can’t trap people who are still slowing down but haven’t reached the new speed limit.
