Speeding by Road IconSpeed Limit Exceeded

Trackitnow have developed a “ROAD SPEED LIMIT EXCEEDED” reporting tool that allows any fleet administrator to see if and when any local or national speed limit has been exceeded and for how long.  This gives users of the Trackitnow ERA Tracking System a new and previously unavailable degree of understanding about how vehicles are used relative to the legal speed limit.

Why do I need it?

Conventional speed reporting from nearly all vehicle tracking providers does not compare the ACTUAL speed being against the ASSIGNED speed limit for the given road or type.
The Trackitnow system compares every data-point collected by the Trackitnow device against the latest updated dataset of speed limits along 99% of the UK roads.

How does it benefit me?

Being able to review and reduce excessive speeding, reduces accidents, saves fuel and significantly extends vehicle longevity while enhancing vehicle end values. Better driver behavior can be a catalyst to save money, improving working conditions and enhancing the reputation of your company.

According to the European Environment Agency, “......cutting motorway speeds from 70mph to 60mph could deliver fuel savings for current technology passenger cars of 9–12 %, assuming smooth driving and 100 % compliance with speed limits. Multiply that cost across several vehicles and you have a huge source for savings in your business......cruising at 80mph can use 25% more fuel than driving at 70mph”

How do Trackitnow get the speed data and how accurate is it?

There is no single public authority responsible for maintaining speed limit information such as a national speed limit dataset. The Highways Agency is responsible for speed limits on motorways and trunk roads. Speed limits on other roads are set by the relevant Local Traffic Authority / Council.  Google has taken it upon themselves to collate this data and to keep it updated as frequently as possible. Google has no obligation to do this, but it does make this Speed dataset available to Trackitnow through an ongoing commercial partnership arrangement.

Are there any limitations?

The current data available relates to marked road speed limits applicable to cars and other light vehicles.
The data for speed limited and restricted HGV / LGV vehicles is due in early 2017

What will it cost?
