   The US convention of 'xx mph' has proved difficult for many map 
consumers.   I have bugged all the other "Speed Limit Visualizer" 
providers, but no one has come up with a functional speed limit 
visualizer in MPH until this one.    I'm trying to figure out the color 
scheme though.    At least I can use the display to plan video mapping 
to gather missing speed limit info.

   As a side note: the speed limit in mph has confounded the Skobbler 
designers - possibly because their data is filtered via Cloudmade. 
There are many roads already fully tagged with maxspeed that get Mapdust 
reports of missing speed limits.

    The better the visualizers and consumers, the more maxspeeds will 
get entered.   You could almost needed a stopwatch to measure the delay 
between Mapquest rendering tollways as green and the completion of toll 
road markings in the US.
