Yeah for years in Ireland all our street signs giving distance to destinations were in km, but our speed signs were in mph (but didn't mention that on the signs). Had a lot of tourists driving very slowly! And I still use the odd mix of imperial and metric, although neither we nor the Brits measure height in cm, that's still feet and inches.

Australians also measure height in feet and inches.

Older Australians can easily switch between the two systems. Personally, the only one with which I have trouble is "yard".
