Google Maps Adds Speed Camera Alerts Feature

Google Maps has rolled out speed limit warnings for both fixed and mobile speed camera locations in over 40 countries, including Saudi Arabia.

Drivers using Google Maps are getting a warning as they approach some speed camera locations.

The new feature allows users to see speed limits and speed cameras on the map before they reach.

It gives a verbal warning, an automated voice saying “speed camera ahead” when drivers are near a fixed speed camera.

According to Google, the features are available in Australia, Brazil, US, Canada, UK, India, Mexico, Russia, Japan, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechia, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Kuwait, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Morocco, Namibia, Netherlands, Norway, Oman, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Tunisia, and Zimbabwe.

However, using radar or any other device to detect speed cameras is illegal by law in Saudi Arabia.
