Don't change the signs, change the units!

As the 2nd car sped past me at 60 mph a few inches from my elbow I had this thought..
Lets just change the speed limit units and keep all the existing signs, all we would have to do is buy some 180 kph signs from the continent for motorways and the whole country would be safer - 30 kph is about 20 mph, 60 kph is about 40mph, lets do it tomorrow!

Actually, in countries that use the correct units the signs don't include kph (or anything similar in the appropriate language): they only have numbers on them. Also, we don't have signs that read "180". I you drive that fast here, you will not only lose your drivers license, but also your car. Anyways, I did pass a policecar once, doing 210 (km/h) on a secondary road (80 allowed). But that was on my motorcycle...
