Today we’re introducing a new feature in Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, Czech Republic, El Salvador, France, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden, Switzerland, Trinidad, Tobago and Uruguay that helps you avoid tickets and drive more safely by notifying you when you’re going over the speed limit (rest of world coming soon.) Whether you’re driving on new and unfamiliar roads or a place where speed limits change with the season, you’ll no longer be in the dark. Waze will keep you aware of your speed, reminding you to slow down and drive safely.
To see speed limits you don’t need to change a thing. If you’re driving over the limit, a visual alert will appear on the Waze speedometer. It will stay there until your speed drops below the limit. In settings you can customize the alert to appear either when the speed limit is reached, or when your speed exceeds the limit by 5, 10 or 15%.
You can download Waze from the App Store for free.
