Correct, unless there is a sign to say otherwise. I don't know where the 60MPH thing came from in the first few pages ?

Its only single lane carriageways/roads which are 60MPH. Not sure how that works on motorway slip roads which have only 1 lane though.

Also watching out for street lighting at night is a fairly good sign of speed limits and hazards.

Persoinally I would rather be sworn at by other road users than get a fine or penalty points
I agree 100%. If I'm not sure I stick to 30MPH. Stuff the other drivers I value my licence. My instructor also told me to assume 30MPH if unsure - especially where there is street lighting. The highway code also says the same for street lighting. The worrying thing these days is when you enter a 20MPH zone and there are no reminder signs anywhere that can be clearly seen. That scares the hell out of me! (Maidstone town centre is a great example)
