For fleet administrators with a standard admin role or a custom role with Map Editor permissions, you can override speed limits initially set for your drivers in your organization. The Map Editor enables you to view and edit speed limits within the context of a map including dashboard alerts, in-cab alerts, and reporting/safety scores.
To complete a Speed Limit Override, launch the Map Editor.
The primary way to enter the map editor view is from the fleet overview map. Right-click on the map and select the option for Edit speed limits here.
Selecting that option will take you to the Map Editor with the speed limits option selected. This page will show a map with all the clickable overlays highlighting every road:
In this map, a blue overlay indicates a road segment that exists in our system, and the yellow color indicates roads with speed limits that have been previously overridden.
To navigate around the map you can either enter an address or location in the top right search bar or simply drag the map around to view neighboring areas. Street overlays will only be viewable at a zoom level of 15.
Please note, if you are have zoomed out too far you will not see any new street overlays render. To automatically get back to zoom 15, click the “Zoom in to edit data”.
Selecting Road Segments and Entering Overrides
In the map editor, each road segment has an overlay that can be clicked on and selected. Once selected, it will change to green and the details of the highlight segment will be added to the left sidebar. From the sidebar, you will be able to see the WayID, speed limit in our database, and the speed limit overrides (if applicable).
It is possible to select multiple road segments by clicking on multiple segments of roads. In the example below, we have selected the road segments that make up 16th street between Valencia and Harrison. Each road segment will have its own box details displayed.
You can de-select road segments by either clicking the 'x' next to the selection from the left sidebar or by clicking on the road segment again.
To update the speed limit of the road using an override, just type in the new speed limit into the Override Speed Limit form and click the “Apply Edits” button.
Please Note: Making an edit to a speed limit will only impact future trips and will not update previous trips.
Editing Speed Limits from Speed Graph
The new map editor also integrates into the existing workflow to edit speed limits from a trip context. You will continue to start the workflow in the same manner by viewing the speed graph on the vehicle show page and highlighting the segment of the trip that needs a speed limit correction.
However, once you click the “Edit X selected road segments”, you will be taken to the map editor with those road segments pre-selected:
