There are multiple reasons I can think of. One is to let you know if you spaced out and missed the speed limit sign and are speeding inadvertently, or driving below the limit inadvertently (a glance at the display can let you know the current speed limit). Another is to allow Waze to compute travel time based on speed limits on the route, for users who are known to obey them. Related: allow Waze to collect user profile data to use in computing projected travel time, such as (e.g.) does the user typically ignore or obey posted speed limits. Another would be to allow Waze to more accurately determine if there is traffic congestion present, based on drivers consistently driving below the posted speed limit.
I like this feature in my in-car navigation system (to let me know when the speed limit changes), but I prefer Waze for real-time warnings and dynamic route adjustments.
