We can specify a speed limit on drivable roads. The maximum speed limit is depending on the situation: within or outside city limits, the road type and the presence of other traffic signs. The default speed limit (SL) can be adjusted by changeable signs.

  • Make sure you’re using the correct units for the speed limits! You can switch between Imperial and Metric by clicking on the tab with the ‘Gear’ icon, on the left column in the Waze Map Editor. The Gear icon is only visible when no segment or place is selected.
  • Adding Speed Limits must be based on certainties. You should be familiar with the area where you add them. Please do not enter Speed Limits when you are not 100% sure.
  • The 'normal speed limit' is the speed limit that is applicable when there is no other signage present.
  • In some cases it may be required to split segments to be able to enter the correct maximum speed. If the change of speed is near to a junction it can be better not to create an extra segment. Segments should be at least 20 meters.
  • On roundabouts enter the highest maximum speed of the connected roads with the same road type.

Areas with a lowered speed limit

In a zone with a lowered maximum speed limit, the maximum speed limit is valid for a clear demarcated area. In Belgium, a school zone is a special usage of such a 30 KM/H zone. These zones can be announced both with a permanent/static and with a dynamic/elektronic 'zone 30' sign. In both cases a 30 KM/H should be entered as maximum speed.

Allen snelheidsborden met met het woord "zone" rond een bepaald gebied gelden voor de straten in dit gebied, (indien er geen andere borden de snelheid wijzigen zone).
