Google Maps has been testing a Speed Trap alert feature in the San Francisco Bay Area in California and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, since July 2017. Although the feature has not been hyped ever since, three different reports from Los Angeles, New York City, and Minnesota suggest that Google Maps may actually be working on making the speed limit feature available for its app.

Last October, Google apparently demoted the US’s speed limit availability from “good data quality and availability” to “approximate data quality or availability,” an act justified in the context of the feature being deployed in the Bay Area only. According to a statement by Android Police last November, it was also suggested that rash and speed traps were already being reported. On the downside, however, the reports were limited to a few users; it was also one-tracked, with the users only being allowed to report and not read what others had stated.

For now, it seems that the feature may actually be in developmental stages, with an audio cue sounding when users are approaching the speed camera. But it is also being said that similar speed camera icons are not visible when revisiting the same location while browsing Maps. The widespread geography also suggests that the feature may not be location-based altogether. And given that Maps has yet to receive any official feature update, it seems to be a server-side switch. Google Maps users have nevertheless got their fingers crossed, given that Waze has had a similar feature for quite some time now.
