HERE Speed Limit Data

“I need speed limits for usage-based insurance or to make the road safer for my work force.”

Rely on HERE’s speed limits completeness and extensive coverage

HERE Speed Limit Data provides speed limits for a road or road segments. Maximum vehicle speeds are provided by vehicle type, allowing your fleet navigation system to know and track road data, and to properly plan for speed limit differences between vans and rigs, for example.

This spatial data enables applications to advise users against violation of traffic restrictions and warn them about maximum speed on a road. Including this data in your GPS fleet speed tracking system can help improve estimated time of arrival (ETA) calculations and allow for more choices in route selection.

Speed Limits Use Cases

Improve the safety and reliability of your fleet with speed limit safety alerts as part of both navigation and your fleet speed tracking system that accurately scores driver behavior. Learn the habits of your drivers and promote safety through recognition or awareness of violations. Speed is a general safety factor for the whole trip — not just when caught and ticketed for the violation.

Understand your local environment and the impact traffic can have, from decreased productivity and increased fuel consumption to higher levels of pollution and risky areas that promote unsafe driving behaviors. Spatial analysis of speed limit data can help you shift traffic patterns, know where to adjust existing limits to reduce risky behaviors, and guide your local municipality in making changes, from speed hump and traffic cameras installation to where law enforcement may need a greater presence on the road.

Don’t let your drivers or customers waste time and money by sitting in traffic or by taking routes that are considerably slower due to speed restrictions. Whether you’re working on a commercial solution or a GPS fleet speed tracking system, planning a route means knowing every limit a vehicle can encounter, from turns, red lights, and traffic to robust posted speeds limits. We’ve all experienced streets and roadways where speed limits change and bottlenecks either form or disperse as a result.
