Google Maps now shows users in India speed limit information shared by traffic authorities. Google is using the power of existing traffic patterns and machine learning to help cities better optimize their traffic light times, helping them reduce waiting times, road congestion, and carbon emissions at intersections.

As of now, the feature will be available in Bengaluru and Chandigarh, but the tech giant is hoping to partner with more cities to bring out the speed limit information on Google Maps. The tech giant partnered with the Bengaluru Traffic Police to help them optimize their traffic light timings and the pilot resulted in a reduction of around 20% in congestion at all intersections. 

Google will extend it across Bengaluru, and will also expand the pilot to Kolkata and Hyderabad in the coming months. Google Maps will provide information on road closures and incidents in eight cities in India, including Delhi, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Gurgaon, Bangalore, and Agra, to help people make informed travel decisions and avoid congested areas. 

Google Maps allows Android users to add a speedometer to their screen while traveling. The feature is not activated by default and users need to enable it by going to Settings. Once the feature is enabled, the speedometer also alerts when the speed limit is exceeded in areas where this feature is available. You can follow these steps to know how to get the speed limit feature of Google Maps.
