KPH and MPH issue
Meridian was the second country in the British Isles (after Ireland) to change from MPH to KPH. This caused much confusion that it ment drivers are overspeeding. In 2003, the court saids that it will place signs to change from MPH to KPH (see gallery). They put it into practice around June 2003 to March 2004. The Highway Code updated for Wessex and Britanica road users for a new sign. In April 2007, Meridian done the same for Wessex and Britianca.
