Re: [Script] UROverview Plus v3.6 (20140202)

Upon hovering mouse cursor over a camera, the popped up dialog window states, among other info, e.g.: "Speed data: 50kph".
May I ask to modify the speed unit to "kmph" or "km/h"? I'm really missing the "m" there (and read it as kilopondhours) :oops:

Oh my gee I really don't like "kmph". "km/h" please!

Yes, kmph is NOT appropriate -- kph is an accepted abbreviation, but not preferred. km/h is the preferred abbreviation (and what we see on signs here in Canada).

It depends heavily on for whom. I'd bet for those living outside of the Imperial part of the world it surely is not - it does not even mention the kilometers.

But I was told that it is widespread on U.S. road shields.

Kilometers per hour isn't used on any US road shields ;)

Speed limit signs don't include a unit at all, but the limits are all given in mph. US-market cars have dual-unit speedometers typically marked "mph" and "km/h".

Well, I can believe.

Yet another season to use "km/h" instead?

according to wikipedia
Though not common in the United States, a speed limit may be defined in kilometers per hour (km/h) as well as miles per hour (mph). The Federal Highway Administration's Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, which provides guidelines for speed limit signage, states that "speed limits shown shall be in multiples of 10 km/h or 5 mph."[63] If a speed limit sign indicates km/h, the number is circumscribed and "km/h" is written below. Prior to 2003, metric speed limits were designated using the standard speed limit sign, usually with yellow supplemental "METRIC" and "km/h" plaques above it and below it, respectively.[64][65]
The 1995 National Highway System Designation Act prohibited use of federal funds to finance new metric signage.

I am pretty sure I have seen some dual speed limit signs somewhere (perhaps Texas?) with kph and mph, but I could easily be wrong.

According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilometres_per_hour):
"For example, news organisations such as Reuters[24] and The Economist[25] require "kph"."

Also, for understanding vernacular -- Google it. "kmph" doesn't show anything about km/h on the first page. "kph" does.

I'm not arguing *for* kph -- just that it's better than kmph... of course km/h trumps them all.

Oh yes, don't get me wrong — I advocate "km/h" in all circumstances.

BTW, there seems to be a new bug with respect to the beta editor, where sometimes the hovering UR box doesn't disappear no matter what I do, even sometimes if I refresh. Usually it picks one UR right when I open the beta and shows its info box the entire time.
