To see speed limits, the Waze user don’t need to change a thing. If he is driving over the limit, a visual alert will appear on the Waze speedometer. It will stay there until the car's speed drops below the limit.
For the time being the new feature in Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, El Salvador, France, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Netherlands, New Zealand, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland, Trinidad, Tobago and Uruguay.
The user can customise the alert to appear either when the speed limit is reached, or when it exceeds the limit by 5, 10 or 15%.
Other Waze features that promote road safety are audio alerts with street names, hands-free, voice controlled settings to keep hands on the wheel and eyes on road and push notifications to let user know about unusual traffic on a route.
