Q13. What is the maximum speed limit for public light buses when travelling on roads?

The maximum speed at which a public light bus may be driven on any road shall not exceed the relevant speed limit of the road and in any case shall not exceed 80km an hour: see Section 40(5A) of the Road Traffic Ordinance (Cap. 374).


A person who drives a vehicle on a road at a speed exceeding 80 km an hour as provided for in Section 40(5A), commits an offence and is liable to a fine at $5,000: see Section 41(1)(c) of the Road Traffic Ordinance (Cap. 374).
