Half the KILOMETRES say 80 divide by 2 = 40
ADD a 1/4 of the 1/2 = 10

add together 40+10=50 miles.

near enough for motoring.

so its half it and add a quarter.

Spent 9 years driving in Europe. I agree with the response miles equals .612
times kilometers; i.e. if sign shows 100K, it's 61.2 miles. That's a bit
mentally cumbersome so I simply used .6 times the number of K's. Works out
fairly closely. Same holds true for speed limit signs. 20Kph is 12 mph.
Worked for me.
