    Hey everyone,
    I just wanted to share that ive been using this feature in waze which has surely helped my awareness:


    I have “play alert sound” selected and “when to alert” set at 5mph or 10mph over the speed limit.

    whenever i drive in an unfamiliar areas it helps a lot bc sometimes the speed limit drops and ill be on cruise control and forget to slow down but the little chime reminds me the limit has changed.

    It was annoying at first but a very effective tool to help you monitor your speed and be more aware of when you are speeding.

    It has some value. Everyday drive, forget about it !
    Driving in an unfamiliar area with changing and artificially low limits, sure.

    I've been using it for years and never turn it off!

    I have suggested to Waze that they use a different color for the speed between PSL and the warning speed you set. They haven't made that change yet. :D
