Google Maps speed limits and speed cameras features now expand to more countries

31 May 2019 4

Google Maps now shows locations of the speed cameras and speed limits in more countries. Back in March, it arrived in India and now it’s spanning across more and more countries. Notifying users about the speed cameras will help in reducing the risk of accidents. Users report a speed camera on a particular road or highway and this gets available on the maps for other users who are taking the same route. Apart from the potential accidents, this will also help the other commuters to avoid fine and also control their speed.

Once reported, the notification for the speed camera is shown in blue with the number of people who have reported this speed camera. This is similar to the Congestion feature that users can report if they find the road they are traveling is congested with a lot of traffic or due to a crash. Users report it and the notification gets shown in red color with the number of people who have reported this congestion.

Google is said to have picked these two features from another navigational app which is Waze. Google is slowly making updates and adding new capabilities to its Maps app so as to help users reaching their destinations better.

Interestingly, the new feature of Google Maps of reporting speed cameras is now available on iOS devices as well.
