Google will usually adjust its Maps speed limit support for a handful of countries every so often. Last we saw, Google had upgraded it in nine regions, but downgraded it in nine others. This time around, many more regions are involved — 18 regions, including the US, have had their speed limit coverage improved, but a whopping 100 others have had theirs worsened.

Being a primarily US-based site, the biggest news for us is the US being upgraded from "approximate" to "good" data quality and availability; a few other regions, including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Ireland, Russia, South Africa, and Turkey have also seen the same improvement. The US was actually downgraded from "good" to "approximate" quality back in 2018, but it's finally bounced back.

Without further ado, here are the 100 regions that have had their speed limit quality downgraded:
