Are drivers in Nottingham the fastest in the UK?

Postby CTCNetwork » Wed Dec 12, 2012 1:35 am

Hi,

Just doing some "tidying up" and spotted this info on a couple of sections of streets.
Waze UK wrote:Average speed for segment
A->B: 2557km/h (1588.8mph)
B->A: 2370km/h (1472.6mph)

Now I know there are some pretty nippy drivers around here, but not that nippy!

Des. . . ;)

Amazing considering the amount of Speed cameras in Nottingham :D

This used to happen in Cartouche if you lengthened a segment, so perhaps it's really old data? Got a permalink to the road in question?

It is a function of the Colour Highlight Script so if you don't have it installed you won't see average speeds.

I don't think we can get the permalink. Once we click premalink, the wrong speed will gone.

Yep, I've seen it too :)
It happens when you edit a road and save it. Until you will reload page (via permalink) for some strange reason these speeds will show like that on edited segments. But sometimes it doesn't happen. But refresh always helps.

Click on any segment. On the left hand side of the screen, you should be able to see a pane with the following (from the top):
- Streetname
- Road-type
- Direction
- Level
- Lock
- Length
- When it was last updated
- When it was created
- Segment id
- Button to select entire street (ie all segments with the same street-name & city
- Average speed for segment - with the speeds in km/h (mph)
