The map layer on www.openstreetmap.org does not have speed limits, although you can of course see the speed limit if you inspect an individual road that you have identified in the "data" overlay (provided that a speed limit has been entered at all).

There are several third-party maps that show speed limits as tagged in OpenStreetMap; one is the Maxspeed layer from ITO. The OpenStreetBrowser is said to have a Maxspeed display as well.

Also have a look in the OSM wiki about http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Maxspeed ... there are some hints for displaying them.

As maintainer of https://www.openstreetbrowser.org I can tell, that I just re-implemented the maxspeed display: https://www.openstreetbrowser.org/#categories=car_maxspeed

since this year you can also right click (or long tap) on a road, then select "query features", this lets you see the speedlimit if present in OSM (tag: maxspeed).

Take a look at wikispeedia for exact location of speed limit signs.

That seems to be not OpenStreetMap-based, right? If so, please delete this answer.

No it is not OSM. I didn't realize that was a requirement to post. My bad.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, please discuss only OSM-related stuff here. OSM is what this help site is about, not some other data providers. Otherwise you also could add an answer "look in google maps". Just in case you did not realize: OSM itself collects speed limits (usually by adding it to the relevant streets, not by collecting the sign positions). Note that likely wikispeedia data may not be copied to OSM and vice versa (copyrights).
