Welcome, slow. Some of my Clan MacDonald ancestors came from the Isle of Man.
If motorists are held fully accountable for their actions, if you have an unusually skillful population of drivers, and if you have an enforceable prima face speed limit ("no faster than is reasonable and prudent"), then you probably do not need conventional numerical speed limits. Unfortunately, my experience is that most motorists drive faster than conditions really merit, and "hard" limits at least give law enforcement and the courts some legal ammunition.
