Which speed is correct? Signs inadequate

I would bring to your attention the question of what is the speed limit within the downtown area of Chemainus.

Further to your editorial in the Feb. 3 edition regarding the problems with signage and road marking in the Duncan area I would bring to your attention the question of what is the speed limit within the downtown area of Chemainus. I assume that one should obey the last speed restriction sign which one encountered but this appears to depend on which route one uses to access the downtown.

If one drives into Chemainus from the Saltair area using either Victoria Road or Chemainus Road and goes down Oak Street from the new roundabout, the last sign one sees indicates a speed limit of 50 kph. If one comes into town from the south on Chemainus Road from the roundabout at Henry Road, or down River Road, one sees a sign indicating 40 kph as the maximum permitted speed and if one accesses the town via Hawthorne Street and Daniel Street or via Pine Street from Chemainus Road the indicated speed is 30 kph.

Which is correct?
