Introduction

The speed limit tool helps you set up custom speed restrictions. You can define speed limits for either

  1. a road segment,
  2. a lane or
  3. a road type.

TM:PE supports setting up speed restrictions for roads, tram tracks, train tracks, metro tracks and monorail tracks.

Setup

You can setup custom speed restrictions per road segment by following theses steps:

  1. Click on the Tm-mainbutton.png button.
  2. Click on the Speed-limits.png button.
  3. In the opened window select the desired speed limit or choose the the unlimited speed sign (white sign with diagonal lines).
  4. Click on one of the overlay signs that are floating over the road segments in order to apply the selected speed limit to the road segment.

To apply the selected speed limit to multiple (nearby) road segments, hold the mouse button down and then move it over the road segments you want to apply the speed limit to. You may also use the shift key while clicking on a speed limit sign on the map in order to apply the speed limit to all nearby road segments up to the next junctions.

This sign represents the absence of any speed limit. Vehicles may drive with their maximum capable speed.

Hints & remarks

  • The default speed limit on highways is "100". Keep that in mind while designing your speed restrictions.

Lane-wise speed limits

You can setup custom speed restrictions per lane by either

  1. activating the checkbox Show lane-wise speed limits inside the speed limit window or
  2. by holding down the Control key on your keyboard while the Speed limits tool is enabled.

Default speed limits per road type

TM:PE also allows you to set default speed limits for individual road types rather than for single road segments. For example, you can remove any speed limitation on all highways without clicking on each existing highway segment individually. Follow these steps to define a default speed limit:

  1. Click on the Tm-mainbutton.png button.
  2. Click on the Speed-limits.png button.
  3. In the opened window, click on the Default speed limits button.
  4. Select the appropriate road type by clicking on the ← and → buttons in the upper half of the window.
  5. Select a speed limit by clicking on the ← and → buttons in the lower half.

Generally spoken, speed restrictions for segments have priority over default speed limits. However, as you can see you are being offered two choices to save a default speed limit. Either

  1. click on Save to set the selected speed as a default limit for all roads of the selected type that you are going to build in the future. In other words, clicking on Save does not change any speed limits of existing roads. Or,
  2. click on Save & Apply to set the selected speed as a default speed limit for the selected road type and to update all existing roads according to your selection. In other words, by clicking on Save & Apply all existing speed limits are overwritten and the speed limit is stored as the default limit for all subsequently built roads of the selected type.
The default speed limits dialog allows you to set up speed limits per road type.

You can close the window by clicking on the X button in the upper right corner.

Hints & remarks

  • Use the Shift key while clicking on a speed limit sign on the map in order to apply the speed limit to all nearby road segments up to the next junctions.
  • Reckless drivers ignore speed restrictions.
