    Google Maps begins to show speed cameras in India

    Google began providing information regarding speed limits and speed cameras on its Maps application in India since last month. This feature has been available in other countries – like the UK, the US, Australia, Russia, Brazil, Mexico, Canada and Indonesia – for a while. Now, it has finally reached India.

    The Maps application now allows users to report speed cameras wherever they encounter them. Once a speed camera is reported the maps show an icon on the map which will be visible to other users on the same route. The notification for the speed camera is shown in blue along with the number of people who have reported the speed camera. This feature is useful to warn commuters of speed cameras so they can avoid fines for speeding.

    This feature providing speed camera information is only available on Android devices and is currently unavailable on iOS. The update also allows users to report accidents, which is then displayed to other users in red along with the amount of time required to pass the accident section.
