www.mt-washington.com/drive-yourself ........ ok, so what is the posted speed limit for driving it, downhill?

#8-item in their "Planning Your Trip - 7 Steps to Drive to the Clouds" says to use your lowest gear ("1", "L" or "L!") but it doesn't say what's the speed limit?

No doubt, the speed limit must be posted on signs along the road .......... correct-a-mundo?

Anyone know WHAT is the downhill and uphill speed limit on the Mt Washington Auto Rd because it does NOT say in their website? ...

Is there a speed limit?
.....................................

Did a little reserach with Google and according to www.grandsummitattitash.com, the Auto Rd speed limit is 15-mph.

"Mt Washington Auto Rd; most vehicles make the 7.6-mile ascent in about 30 minutes one-way, 30 to 45 minutes back down depending on traffic, weather conditions and whether or not you need to make any stops. Because the Auto Road is steep and narrow without guardrails, the average speed limit is 15 MPH."
