That looks like Newington. I hadn't considered the administrative
differences such as demerit points, but yes! And there's a great
example at the southern end of Mann Street, Gosford where a School
Zone is contained inside a permanent 40km/h zone.
I took this pic this morning after reading your post on the way home
(applogies for sun being in the wrong place)....
"End School Zone..." and back into a 40 zone.
Therefore any tagging scheme should differentiate it as a special
rules zone rather than simply a time-based speed change. I'm getting
a headache from all this. I'm going to revert a couple of my
experimental tags back to restriction=school_zone with a note, and
worry about it later.
