Most road signs don't have a distance on so thats rubbish to start with and its simple if you are thinking speed signs, just make the whole country safer and say that the, for example, 50mph limit is now 50kph - instant safety campaign costing next to nothing to implement!
Absolutely - 30mph speed limits would become 30kph or 'twenty is plenty', country roads would be 60kph, still too fast in many circumstances but better than 60mph. Safety, fuel saving and therefore less Co2, friendlier environment for cycling and walking.
You’re forgetting the cost of lost lobbying.
There are millions of signs with miles on. Whilst speed can be retained in a different unit, Berwick to Edinburgh doesn't suddenly go from 60 miles distant to 60 km
