Interesting! This Google Map Update Helps Drivers Keep The Speed Limit
Brian|Jan. 30, 2019
Thanks to a new feature built into Google Maps, you might be able to avoid future speeding tickets. A long-awaited Google Maps update shows speed limits on the app for both iOS and Android devices, as well as speed traps in select countries. Having some extra help on the road has never been easier!
The speed limit feature was previously only available in the San Francisco Bay Area and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but Google Maps now appears to be rolling out its speed limit feature nationwide, as noted by Android Police on Jan. 17. If your app has the new feature, the speed limit will be displayed on the bottom left side of the app in a small rectangle. Users can also rely on speed trap features to help track speed cameras and avoid tickets. According to Mashable, the speed traps will have orange camera icons so drivers can make sure to maintain the speed limit around these areas. The best part? You don't have to do it alone, because drivers will receive audio notifications when approaching speed traps.
