State Laws

316.090 Driving on divided highways

(2) No vehicle shall be driven over, across, or within any such dividing space, barrier, or section, except through an opening in such physical barrier or dividing section or space or at a crossover or intersection as established, unless specifically authorized by public authority.

This means in Florida it is illegal to cross a lined median (quad yellow lined median with or without diagonal lines or chevrons.) unless it has an "opening" which means it stops or is broken lined in a uniform manner.

  • green = allowed to turn left across
  • red= dividing space. Illegal to enter for any movements.

316.1515 Limitations on turning around

The driver of any vehicle shall not turn the vehicle so as to proceed in the opposite direction upon any street unless such movement can be made in safety and without interfering with other traffic and unless such movement is not prohibited by posted traffic control signs.

Self Explanatory. Don't allow a U-Turn in FL in a situation that violates this law.

316.189 Establishment of municipal and county speed zones

(1) MUNICIPAL SPEED.—The maximum speed within any municipality is 30 miles per hour. With respect to residence districts, a municipality may set a maximum speed limit of 20 or 25 miles per hour on local streets and highways after an investigation determines that such a limit is reasonable. ...

It is safe to assume if no speed limit is posted in an development that the speed limit will be 30 mph. If it's a development, the speed limit is usually 25 mph if no signs are posted. When checking for speed limits in developments, a good rule of thumb is to check the streets that are adjacent from the main roads. The speed limit is usually posted with a plaque underneath indictating the speed limit applies for the neighborhood and/or development. Note that if any speed limit signs are posted they must follow the MUTCD to be valid (unless it's a private development or privately maintained road).

Florida Counties Overlay

ggrane spent a lot of time inputting the county coordinates into this script by davielde. This is the same script used for the raid overlays.

Thanks to both davielde for creating the original script and ggrane for his work on the original overlay. Thanks to rickzabel for remaking these and streamlining the script with the 2014 census files.

County and City GIS Links

Thanks to the The "Sunshine" Law in Florida all records made or received by any public agency in the course of its official business are available for inspection. This means we are able to use public records available online to map in Waze.

  • Cities are included in their county after the county mapping links.

If information about road segments pertaining to speed limit is provided within the GIS note that below or if it can be provided from a reputable source (e.g. respective local government website) then please add those sources below as well. However, it's important to note to save time that FDOT is a partner of Waze and provides data for speed limits on roads that have FDOT jurisdiction. FDOT jurisdiction encompasses US Highways, Interstates, and State Roads within Florida.


PA = Property Appraiser
BoCC = Board of County Commissioners

NOTE: The county loves to use grid system for naming roads. Please note their GIS does not list the suffix on the number. Also, there are some instances where the road may be segmented with a direction change which also restarts numbering on the same road! For example, some segments can state W and then NW with no signage displayed. (even the intersection signage doesn't show the change!) Double validate by checking nearby parcels on the street to see the full street name.
