        I ride a motorscooter that goes 50 mph. I am not allowed to be on interstates. If I want to go cross country, what roads can I use?

        Personally, since I am a very private person (NO social media usage of any kind), I don't like the fact that I am being tracked by my driving speed. This is just another way of big brother keeping track of me. Even though it is available as an "option", I don't trust It, anymore. When I noticed I was being tracked, I immediately deleted Waze from my Android.

        This is available as an option in the Settings. I find it very useful, and I can therefore report when Waze has the wrong limit on a section (eg when the limit has been changed after road works).

        You can see the bars around your speed indicating how much of the speed limit you are driving.
        When you are at the speed limit, the circle is complete.

        This Has Already Been Implemented. It seems the development team does not even look at this uservoice feedback forum. :(

        It seems absurd to have to exceed the speed limit before the limit shows on the map.

        We do find it very helpful to have the speed limit indicated. With heavy traffic, it is often impossible to see the speed limit signs. Traffic is usually heavier through cities, and speed limits often change 3 or more times from entry to exit of a metropolitan area.

        Tom Tom has an overlay that fits it brilliantly. Would be great if Waze could include it similarly. Displays limit with your speed next to it.

        It would be really cool if Waze awarded points for driving at or under the speed limit!

        Totally agree! The existing tone for exceeding the speed limit is so soft you can barely hear it. Then it on chimes once and a while, indiscriminately? It needs to be loud, have sound and voice options, get louder the longer you speed, turn on everutime you exceed the limit....come on....do it right....why do these fixes have to dribble out a little bit at a time? Do it all and do it right the first time!

        An option it's needed to put the max speed of the way always like de speed one, not only when going faster.

        Also with the radars, why it's not possible to advise with voice a radar it's in the way, only advises when yo go faster than the allowed speed.

        Agree. Its easy to miss a speed limit sign on the road since they are usually right after I'm merging onto a highway where I'm paying more attention to the traffic than signs. I know my speed because we all have a speedometer on the dash board. Waze needs to show the known limit if known and not just when I exceed the limit. Finally, the speed limit should be easier to read at just a "quick glance". If I have exceeded the limit, its easier to see my speed than the speed limit since my speed is large and the limit is small.

        Agree: Waze needs a setting to show Speed Limit at all times. Current _speed_ is already readily available on every automobile dashboard. Current speed _limit_ is information not easily available any other way -- if either you missed the sign, or it was obscured for some reason.

        I actually drive at or below the speed limit, so I need to know what it is - without breaking it.

        Please add a feature that allows users to post the speed limit on roads that the app doesn't know.
