Google Maps, being one of the most used apps, has several functionalities that allow users to have a hassle-free journey. These features include street view, toll estimates, Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) and more. The Google app can also send speed limit warning alerts to users in case they are about to exceed on a particular route. This way, users can check their speed and adjust it accordingly.

Here are the steps that you can take to turn on these speed limit alerts on your device.

How to turn on the speed limit warning on Google Maps

Open the Google Maps app on your smartphone
Tap on the profile icon in the top right corner
Scroll down and tap on navigation settings
Now turn on the toggle for the speed limit
Turn on toggle for speedometer

And you are good to go. Now, if you exceed a certain speed limit, the app will send you an alert immediately. This feature is now available for users in India as well.

As per the recent company blog, “To help support road safety efforts in the country, Google Maps will now show speed limits information shared by traffic authorities, starting with Bengaluru and Chandigarh. We are looking forward to partnering with more cities in surfacing speed limits info on Google Maps.”

Additionally, Google has teamed up with Bengaluru traffic police to help them optimise their traffic light timings – and we have some exciting initial results. It uses existing traffic patterns and machine learning to help cities better optimise their traffic light timings, “helping them reduce wait time at intersections, road congestion, and carbon emissions as well.”

As claimed by the company, “the pilot resulted in almost a 20 percent reduction in congestion across all the intersections.” Google is planning to expand this collaboration to Kolkata and Hyderabad as well in the coming months.
