Others have commented that the nearby traffic light has an effect (and the visible speed indicator itself is designed to slow traffic).

That is why it is really the maximum speeds that are most significant, since they would normally be associated with the "free flowing traffic" phase of the light and dangerous inconsiderate drivers who don't care that everyone can see them exceeding the speed limit (by as much as 40km/h!).

It would have been interesting to follow up this data (which was really about trying to calm traffic rather than measure actual traffic speeds) with unobtrusive speed measurements which would be more representative.

But, of course, even 50 km/h is far too fast for this sort of street!
