Q: What are the speed limits for cars in China?

Perhaps I'm not looking hard enough, but it appears as though there are no speed limit signs posted (in Beijing anyway).

Does anyone know what the regulation min/max speeds for cars are on Chinese roads/highways/interstates?

Do drivers ever get pulled over for driving to fast/slow?

Yeah there's speed limits.  For highways there are signs over each lane to show the speed limit of that lane.

As far as enforcement.... the street cams catch most of the speeders.

I like a snowy Happy new year, rather than a no sky one...Beijing's time to ban the cars---the only solution for the time being...

A:This won't help overly with your situation, but maybe shed some light on what's required. When I had my criminal history thing done in Australia, it needed to be an original document, which was notorised by the Department of Foreign Affairs, before going to the Chinese consulate to be apostilled. Fortunately, our government has its shit together, and it was fairly painless... the Federal Police let me order the check online (and I even emailed them to request more copies, and I was replied to within hours saying "sure, no problem - but the max we can send is 3, which I'll send for free!) DFAT also knows the deal, and has a pretty quick turn-around time ("Oh, you want this for China - yeah, no problem!") My biggest problem was determining if the Chinese stamp could be done at any Chinese consulate, or ONLY at their embassy (in Canberra).... after LOTS of emails with incorrect information, the local consulate in Brisbane said "we have exaclty the same powers (red stamps) as the embassy, so yes, you can get it done with us!" But... it had to be done in person!!! So, no mail-ins... and as with all things Chinese, passports and other ID and such BS was needed!!! So - as NZT suggested - ask the Chinese embassy in London. -- Shining_brow
