R4-2 speed derestriction sign

When I was growing up, there was a set of these signs on a country road just outside of town.  I always took it to mean that you could hoon along at any speed.
Unrestrict

What they actually meant was that you could travel at the upmost speed limit for the state (100 kp/h where I was).

At one time, before we got speed limits on the open road, they actually meant you can drive at any speed you wanted, provided it was safe to do so.  You don’t get to see these signs much anymore …
