You have the ability to override the speed limits originally set for your drivers in your fleet. These overrides take effect immediately and apply to future trips and are not retroactive. Speed graphs and speeding reports for already-completed trips will not be affected.
Setting a Speed Limit Override removes the option to override speed limits through the dash camera stills. All overrides will be processed from the Speed Graph.
To override speed limits, ensure you have the appropriate permissions. See Users and Roles for additional information.
Edit Speed Limits in Map Editor
If you have standard admin 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 perform a Speed Limit Override, navigate to your fleet Overview ( ). Right-click on the map and select Open Map Editor to view a map with all the clickable overlays highlighting every road:
- Blue overlay: road segment data available
- Yellow overlay: road with speed limits that have been previously overridden
To search for a specific address, use the search bar at the top of the map. Drag the map around to view neighboring areas. If the street overlay can not be edited or is not visible, select Zoom in to edit data.
Select Road Segments and Enter Overrides
You can select each road segment that has an overlay. A selected segment displays as green and the details of the segment show in the left sidebar. From the sidebar, you can view the WayID, speed limit, and the speed limit overrides (if applicable).
When you edit the speed limit in a segment, ensure that the entire applicable road segment is selected. For example, if the speed limit applies to the entire street, select all street segments to edit the speed limit for the street.
To select multiple road segments, click on all road segments. In the example below, the road segments that make up 16th street between Valencia and Harrison are selected. Each road segment details appear in Selected Roads.
To de-select road segments, click remove ( X ) next to the selection from the left sidebar or click on the road segment again.
To update the speed limit of the road using an override, type in the new speed limit into the Override Speed Limit (mph) bar and Apply Edits.
Making an edit to a speed limit will only impact future trips and will not update previous trips.
Edit Speed Limits from Speed Graph
The map editor also integrates into the existing workflow to edit speed limits from a trip context. View the speed graph on the vehicle show page and To view the speed graph, from your fleet Overview ( ), select the vehicle. Above the map, select Speed from the Graph Data menu. Highlight the segment of the trip that needs a speed limit correction and continue .
Click “Edit (X) selected road segments” to continue to Edit Speed Limits in Map Editor.
