20 mph Average speed zone

Post by Ianinessex
Here in sunny Southend, I have a short (about 1/2 mile) length of road on the seafront that is 20mph and has average speed cameras at either end. This has become a nice earner for the council and catches a lot of visitors. :D
The cameras are in place in Waze and set to 20 mph. The road speed limit is also set to 20 mph. I have ticked the little boxes for the average speed camera both ways, but this stubbornly refuses to appear in the live map. Waze warns of the cameras but I can not get it to show the average speed zone.

Has anyone got any ideas?

I can see why this might be the case. Waze produces a little bar at the side of the screen while you are within an average speed zone, showing what proportion of the zone you have traversed. If it's not navigating, it doesn't know which roads you are about to take and whether these roads are within the zone. So it can't show the bar. And perhaps since it can't do that, it doesn't do any of the average speed camera processing.

Not sure that feature is live to all users yet is it?

I understand it is live in iPhones and beta in android (which I am using). I can see other average camera zones, just not this one.

My current suspicions are either:
1. It doesn't work below a certain speed?
2. It doesn't work on roads below a certain level
2. It doesn't work unless all the sections of a road are the same way round (A-B)?

But I can't find anything written down about how it works.

Whilst there are a few other fairly short ASC zones here and there, the majority are going to be at least a mile long, so it wouldn't surprise me if the app simply hasn't been designed to deal with any that are below some minimum length threshold.
One option I have not thought of, but could be correct.

The question is - who knows and how do I find out? :?

Don't I know it, there has been a sudden flurry of 20mph UR's, which when followed up have almost all been drivers trying out the new button!!

Mind you in Basildon, the home of the boy racer, I have had a few 60 mph and one 100 mph report in the middle of the housing estates. I think they assume by marking it at that speed they can then drive at the speed. ;)

Despite this, you still get the speed camera warning for any cameras you go past if you are driving at more than the set limit. :?

I've created a similar short one in Devon - when I next go, I'll see if that is live.

BTW - the regular Android app now has average speed and speed limit reporting etc.
