A heads-up for those travelling to the continent next year.

New speed limits are to be introduced in the Netherlands in 2020 to reduce pollution. This will mean a cut of the motorway speed limit from 130 kph to 100 kph (62 mph), although apparently the old limit will remain during evenings and night (19.00 to 06.00)

Driving at 130km/h in Holland tends to feel a bit like a demolition derby at times, much of the motorway system is 120km/h and if it’s anywhere near a built up area it’s 100km/h already - if you’ve never driven near Schipol the speed limit on the motorway is up and down like a demented elevator as it is!

All limits are signposted (the don’t have a national speed limit as such) so paying attention to signs pays off
