Powers to set speed limits have now been devolved, so the Scottish
government could change the speed limit if they wanted. So far it looks
like there's no plans to do so.
If there is any change, I'm sure it will be clearly signposted, both at
the border and within Scotland.
Also a few other things devolved, eg the drink-driving limit. It looks
like that will be reduced in Scotland soon.
