The issue is that mapquest and whatnot is fine as long as there's no traffic; but I want to be able to 'change' the speed limit from 65 or whatever to 20, and find a better way to go.



Ideas?

I know map24.com allows you to change average speed settings for highway/roads/minor roads/ferry.

Why do you need to change the speed limit?
If you are going to make everything 20mph just use miles as your deciding factor.

Most mapping software will let you do that for a "class" of roads (i.e. Interstate, limited access highway, dirt road, etc), but I've never seen one that lets you do it for a particular road or stretch of road.

Yeah, changing from "fastest" route to "shortest" route is an alternative.

because, for example, from my house to work:

road I live on, no traffic, 25mph.
main street, speed limit is 40, but normally goes around 30mph.
another main street, speed limit is 45, but the lights get backed up.
then I get on the highway, where it is 65mph and no traffic for 2 miles, then 2 miles at like 35-40, then 1/2 mile at like 10mph, I work off the exit.



It would be nice to be able to assign these roads different speed limits. I know some of the back ways, but there's traffic on many of those roads too.
