It has been, and I believe, successfully.

I suppose Waze calculates your average speed over a number of segments. Which leads to a lower Speed displayed on the client, if another Wazer is looking at you.

What person would provide Waze as evidence for not speeding?

You can check your speed from the previous trips function but I would never use it in court... ;)

Although this speed was 100% legal, I think my speed was still reported to others as "more than 40 km/h". Looking at the current live map, I don't see any speeds reported above 55, which is way to slow for freeways. Furthermore these speeds are only rough figures and appear delayed. So no need to worry, that anyone's gonna catch you speeding through Waze even if some Muppet Show court on this planet would accept that as a legal proof.
You shouldn't be speeding nevertheless!

I have never seen a speed over "55 mph".
... and the "v" is for Volvo.

It just gives your speed as say under 50mph it never says what your actual speed is
