“If the Speed Limits feature is available in your location, the speedometer in the app will let you know if you’re driving too fast. The speed indicator will change colors if you go over the speed limit,” said Google on its website.

However, users should rely on their own car’s speedometer first and follow directions from local authorities in order to drive safely.

The tools can be accessed through the ‘Driving Options’ section of Google Maps.
