Does this mean that the vehicle being towed can do up to 110 but the towing vehicle can only do 100 - mmmmmm...... put engine in caravan and call it a pusher (if the car is a tower).
Just musing with random nonsensical thoughts late on Fri night.

Cheers everyone

So 100km/h for vehicles with a GVM over 12T? That's interesting because one of my mates got done for speeding recently towing a box trailer with a bike in it - either that bike is the heaviest motorcycle on the planet or the copper was taking the p--s. Tow vehicle was a Subaru Impreza and he was doing 110...

read the lower part of the sign as three seperate lines.

line one. "all towing vehicles" ie towing something ( including subaru impreza towing box trailers )

line two "all vehicles over 12T GVM" ie non articulated vehicles, that's a vehicle without a tralier that has a GVM over 12T

line three " buses over 5T GVM". non baby buses ;)

Without local knowledge there is no way visitors understand WA signs. Brings in more foreign currency.
