Google Maps Now Warns You About Speed Traps


Google is adding the location of speed traps to Google Maps. This means drivers will be warned when approaching a speed camera. Google is also adding speed limits to Google Maps. These will be displayed in the app, leaving drivers with no excuses for speeding.

How to Locate Speed Traps in Google Maps

Speed traps will appear as icons on the roads themselves. This mainly applies to stationary speed cameras for obvious reasons. However, Android users will be able to report the locations of mobile speed cameras to warn their fellow drivers to proceed with caution.

Speed limits will appear in the bottom corner of the app, giving drivers a second way of checking the speed limit besides watching for road signs. The only problem is the need to look at your phone to see the speed limit, forcing you to take your eyes off the road.
