We’re stuck in traffic on the motorway and there is a coach in front of us. The coach is from a company in Birmingham, so based in the U.K.

On the back, at the top left and to right of the window are two stickers with speeds of 80 and 100.

Darwin asked what they mean/are used for, but neither of us know, so I said I’d try and find the answer for him and hoped somebody here might know.

Pretty sure for a coach to travel in Europe you need them on there.

:this:

And, according to some on Reddit, some cars with traffic sign recognition can read them and get confused, and tell you that the speed limit for the road you’re on is 80 or 100 mph.

Also, does anyone know what this emblem means? It looks vaguely occultish.

Looks like half a sun, half a snowflake.

so probably "comfortable in all weather" or something.
