Good point, but since the intent of these signs was to show traffic problems, the lower speeds were usually the most valuable to the commuter.  I guess I would suggest that when the reported speed at a traffic choke point was greater than 99 KPH, that the three BYTES to be displayed could be ">99".  If traffic was going that fast, then it would probably not be a concenrn...

But thanks for the "world view" correction.
