Governance by telepathy

The Eastern Metropolitan Bypass (often spelt Byepass by the authorities) has a new speed limit, and cameras to enforce it. Someone I know was fined today for driving at 73 km/h. Pictures of his car were taken by automatic cameras mounted somewhere on the E.M.Bypass, and he was fined Rs. 300 for driving above the speed limit of 60 km/h. That sounds all right, until you realise that the E.M.Bypass does not have a traffic sign displaying the speed limit, at least not anywhere on the stretch this person was driving.

Presumably the drivers need to have telepathic powers so that they can know and obey the speed limit.

RTI question: How many traffic signs clearly showing the speed limit are posted on the E.M.Bypass, on the stretch guarded by the automatic cameras?
