Well, a quick check on Google images shows plenty of 55 mph signs, 50 kph signs, and 60 kph signs but no 55 kph signs which would seem to indicate that it is the common 55 mph US highway speed limit sign.

Well, they've got a thousand years to come up with a 55 kph sign. I know how projects can balloon and run into delays, but I'm confident that humanity can get the job done by then. 8)

Speak for yourself, I have seen plenty of far sillier things that have stuck around for a lot longer than that.  Of course, this would be adding layers of unnecessary complexity to the system and speed limits are generally government projects so you may have a point here. ;D

In the Glorious Golden Age of the Star League, millions of public works projects were completed monthly - on Terra alone. 

And also, students would have walk to school, in 1.2m of snow, uphill - both ways, barefoot.  Except of course, that no student walked, they all had shoes, and Weather Control Units limited snowfall in residential areas to 0.5m.
