You could use their API:

If you would like to add the data to OSB, you're free to do so.

If you know the start and end of a "maxspeed=30" you're free to update 
OSM with that data too.

However, please don't tell people on an international mailiing list "you 
must do X".  It's unlikely to achieve the results that you would like.

Having no speed limit on a road is not an error, but it is missing data 
unless the speed limit can be inferred somehow. Having a dummy node 
saying speed limit is missing IS an error, since that node doesn't 
rpresent anything in the real world.

Perhaps you could comment on some of the replies that you've received 
(e.g. Ronnie Soak's?)  People are trying to help you, but communication 
is clearly not occurring.
