Find out the proper speed limit for your local roads, or wherever you visit, with Speed Limit, the fun Android app from wikiSPEEDia.org.
Unlike all other speed-apps, this one knows the speed limit.
WikiSPEEDia, the world speed limit database, gathers the GPS coordinates of every speed-limit sign found by users all over the world. Speed Limit contains 27,000,000 speed limits from their open-source, constantly checked and edited database, including back roads missing from standard GPS systems.
Edit your own records if you find a sign which needs correction. Pay attention to Granny, who will let you know if you're exceeding the speed limit--and won't stop nagging you until you slow down (or turn off her taunts in the app's settings). Cast a quick glance at the posted speed as you drive; if the number turns red, please slow down.
Rally your local car club, Girl Scout Troop, School Fundraiser group to log speed limits in your area. Its easy and fun. All submissions are audited nightly. Search for wikiSPEEDia on the web to see how a group of Lego US-First kids logged 500 speed limits from their houses! All signs contributed are copyrighted with your name, owned by you forever.
