People can't even park right at our school. Which means that when the road gets slimmer and slimmer with crappy winter plowing the city bus can't even GET through when there is traffic on both sides of the road.
I don't think we have speed limits here but it's just common sense. And yes, they still teach the kids parking lot/road safety. They even make their own videos about it each year.
As for your question, if it happens in our city, no one really has a right to DO anything about it at all. You don't follow the speed limit you'll get ticketed, plain and simple.
