Previously, all expressways in the People's Republic of China were limited to a maximum speed limit of 110 km/h (70 mph). With the passage of the PRC's first road-related law, the Road Traffic Safety Law of the People's Republic of China, speed limits were raised nationwide to 120 km/h (75 mph) as of May 1, 2004; however, the updating of signs (if and when it becomes complete) will still take some time.

Semi-expressways and city express routes (uniquely called kuaisu gonglu 快速公路 in Chinese, meaning "fast public road") generally have lower speed limits topping out at around 100 km/h (65 mph), and in some cases, the speed limit may be lower.

On China National Highways (which are not expressways), a common speed limit is 80 km/h (50 mph). In localities, speed limits may drop to 40 km/h (25 mph). In reality, few people drive according to the speed limits, and on some roads, enforcement cameras are nearly non-existent.

On some designated "fast through routes" in cities, speed limits can go all the way up to 80 km/h (50 mph). Otherwise, speed limits remain 70 km/h (45 mph) on roads with two uninterrupted yellow lines and 60 km/h (40 mph) or even 50 km/h (30 mph) otherwise. Signage in towns and on expressways is often present.

Minimum speed limits on expressways vary. A general minimum speed limit of 60 km/h (40 mph) is in force at all times (although traffic jams more than thwart it). According to law, the overtaking lane has a minimum speed limit of 110 km/h (70 mph), and a second lane often has a minimum speed limit of 90100 km/h (5565 mph). (The second lane, though, should only be set a minimum speed limit if third, fourth, and subsequent lanes exist.)
