Where do speed limits start?

The speed limit starts where the sign is placed on the road. This means that if you are coming from a higher speed into a lower speed limit area you must slow down before you reach the sign. If you are in a lower speed limit area and are coming up to a higher speed limit area then you must wait until you reach the sign before you speed up.
