Project: Adding speed limits to streets

Postby Machete808 » Sun Nov 15, 2015 2:47 am

We need to begin adding speed limits to the street segments. The upper-rank editors will handle the freeways, highways and most major streets. But even if you are a level 1 editor, you can add this information to regular neighborhood streets, those that appear white on the map. Usually these are all 25 mph, but infrequently there can be some variation according to street signs.

Take a look at the image here:

Puuohalai Pl in Kaneohe has been clicked. When the street segment is selected, you get a display like this in the editing panel on the left. Since the new update of the Waze Map Editor, the Speed Limit field now appears about halfway down. I've entered 25 mph in the A to B and B to A blanks (obviously, on a one-way segment, you will only see one of those blanks). When I did so, the edit count appeared as a red number in the Save (disk) icon on the top bar. Click that to save. That's it.

The overwhelming majority of neighborhood streets on Oahu have speed limits of 25 mph, so in general you're safe with that, according to the City and County Traffic Code:

There are exceptions -- old Ewa town has a bunch -- but any street less than 18 feet in width. There's a list of them here:

On long segments when the sign shows a change in speed limit, we can split it in two sections so that each can be marked correctly. However, that is generally not necessary for neighborhood street segments. Please alert one of the state managers if there are variations — around schools, for example. We can post a notation on the map and revisit that area when we get more detailed guidance from Waze editing management.

Thanks for your help. Any questions, ask away!

Just as an addition to the other editors, currently protocol is to not add speed limit based on the yellow and black exit speed signs from the freeway. Only speed limits that matter are the black and white signs.
