Maybe. But if I've got the right person, she famously

My use of the plural "signs" could easily be an invalid generalization from that single observation.

2) Perhaps it was a test case ... that there were at that time a few metric speed limit signs on certain highways? ... perhaps they were placed alongside mile-per-hour signs? Indeed, that might be why I remember that sign but not others.
this is a couple of weeks old, but I've only just spotted it:
