30 years after Berlin Wall fell, East-West divides remain

  30 years after Berlin Wall fell, East-West divides remain The walls of the Bornholmer Huette pub were last painted in 1973, a light beige that has gradually cracked and darkened into a caramel brown from decades of cigarette smoke. The "Huette," as regulars call it, has been in Matthias Gehrhus' family since 1954 and he doesn't plan on changing it any time soon. Its Spartan styling recalls the days when it was a meeting place in communist East Berlin's Prenzlauer Berg neighbourhood, somewhere you'd go to catch up with an old friend over a cheap beer.Gehrhus, 50, was born into that world and doesn't want it back.

'It's 100% revenue raising. The sign actually forces slowing in black spots, no sign just means more money. Sure no one should speed, but we don't live in that dimension,' another wrote.

'Do 40... but blimey guys, get your s**t together!' wrote a third.

According to NSW road rules, the speed limit is enforced if the numbers are surrounded by a red ring, which rules out the 60km/h on the road.

However, with two different signs on the side of the street, many were still stumped.

'So the numbers on the road virtually mean nothing, in the eyes of the road laws. But technically, the 50 sign is after the 40 sign. So it'd be 50,' one user commented.

Another suggested that the speed limit may have been temporarily changed due to an upcoming construction site.

'Where a road work speed limit sign is displayed, the speed limit is enforceable and must be obeyed. When approaching roadworks pay attention to all signs and obey reduced speed signs,' the RMS website reads.

Meanwhile, others joked about the freedom the multiple speed signs gave.

'Just sum up all the numbers and do 150km/h,' one person joked.

'So you know the min and the max.. what’s better than that...' another said.
