In short, Speedlimit would be a nice popup when you pass the limit in that area, with the posibility to change it if you notice it has changed since last update

+1 for crowdsourcing speed limits and displaying the current speed limit of the segment your driving on. Or at least , speed limit display together with the traffic cams.

That would definitely be a tremendous improvement for Waze.
This is a key feature, hardly expected by a wide panel of wazer.

We recently started using Waze and kudos to the real time traffic and rerouting. However, the one feature that is sorely missing is the speed limit. I know how fast I am going, I need to know what the speed limit is as on long journeys it often changes and I find myself going faster than I should. Does anyone know if that is planned as a new feature in a future release?

Thanks!
Diane

I'm sure there is still a risk, albeit a minimal one because they pay for the information and can reasonably assume that it is accurate!

As to guessing the speed limit, that's just completely unworkable. These data are useless unless fairly accurate.

I am glad it is coming. I feel it is good information to have if available. Also, if Waze does not have the information, how does it accurately predict time to your destination?

Waze isn't as interested in increasing the accuracy and reliability of their drive time estimates as they appear to be in mounting a defense of their decision to stick with averages, which in normally distributed data are wrong more than they are right.

I'm glad this is coming. I'm a traveling salesman. The only reason I'm still using my Garmin WITH Waze is that it tells me what the speed limit is on the current road. I often drive for miles on the Interstate before seeing a Speed Limit sign even when looking for one (South East USA). Occasionally, the speed limit changes and Garmin is wrong, but Wazers can report changes. This would be cool too for, say a 70 MPH zone that is reduced to 55 MPH for long term construction as I-95 is in Columbia SC is right now. I'd love to beta test this.

I would love this feature.
It would be very useful to know what the legal speed limit is in any given area I am driving through.
Seems like it would be pretty easy to add a report Speed Limit sign.
I would be willing to help drive around and verify them.
