Default Re: Red markings at 30, 50 & 130 kmph in VAG speedometers - What are they?

My 2006 Skoda Laura L&K has those markings. Laura is sold as Octavia MK2 in other parts of the world, no special parts(or downgrading) for India i believe, we have the same cars here.

I've gone through the manual but couldn't find the purpose. So i guess its for speed limit reminding!

Also i would like to add that these markings have been around for quite some time. And not only related to VAG group cars.

And on a much later Indian Padmini
