Its no worse that a friend or family memeber calling or sending an email letting you know of speed traps happening that week. Cops are shader then ever, I get profiled alll the time because of the car I drive and it bs anytime I can stick it to the man and save a few bucks it is well worth it. Not to cause problems I have plenty of friend in the department so I respect what they do in the force but you alway will have shady cops.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

While you are correct, that it is no different (in principle) from a radar detector, the truth is both are a tool that drivers use to stay more alert to their surroundings, and it works in a positive way. Evidence of this can be seen in lower insurance rates for those so equiped. Also, I can tell you from my police experience many many moons ago that the watch commander will be happy to tell you where traffic enforcement will be that day. Why? Because again their sole purpose is to get people to be more careful and obey the laws that will help reduce the chance they are in a collision.This software is only for people who want to avoid tickets and know where they can speed up. This is an early warning system no different than a radar scanner.
Yeap, and the cops will gladly tell you where they are, and guess what? You'llI have lost too many friends from speeding. Programs like this is just another way to find out where the cops are. That's my view. Its a free country do what you want but please drive responsible.
be extra careful when you drive through that area too.
If you are DUI, no program in the world is going to save you. Just take a look at how many are arrested at check points that they drive up to!What's next early warning system for ride programs? Its like saying I don't drink and drive but would like to know where they are. Doesn't make sense to me.
You clearly have never operated a radar gun. Trust me, they are dead on accurate, and well maintained and tested. Truth be told, it is an extremely simple matter to "clock" someone even passing them head on without any equipment but your eyes and your own speedometer.Also, the police don't reset the radar guns, so they maybe clocking the wrong car. I got caught once in a speed trap, even thought there were 2 other cars in a 4 lane street who were in front of me, the cop stopped me because I was easy pickings and let the others go.
Besides, it's the unmarked car you won't see, or the helicopter or plane that will get you. If you speed all the time, as a matter of habit, you will get caught. If you occassionally find yourself over the limit unintentionally, stuff like this might help you.
This reminds of an incident I encountered last year.
There was this huge speed trap set up in Kansas City where I-70 intersects with I-435. Everyone around here knows that stretch because you cannot see traffic jams until you are under the intersection.
They had 4-6 cops with radar guns without vehicles on the overpass peeking through the rails so you couldnt see them. When you passed the intersection, you can see literally dozens of cop cars and motorcycles lined up and down the onramp and tons of people pulled over on the other side of the intersection.
Anyways, I had to make a second trip through there later in the day and about a mile before I got to the intersection there was a pickup truck with a guy holding a sign that said
"Speed Trap Ahead, SLOW DOWN!!!"
Then as I passed the intersection, sure enough, they were still stationed up there peeping through the rails and all the cars and motorcycles were still lined up on the onramp. But this time no lights flashing or cars pulled over lol.
About a mile past the intersection I saw another pickup truck with another person holding a sign that said
"You're Welcome, Tips Are Welcome Too!"
That just made my whole weekend when I saw that and thought about how pissed the cops must have been when their nice setup wasnt working anymore lol.
Hmm, after trying to use this program for 3 straight days, it doesnt work with Cingular
I use a CB radio. Updates automatically "full grown in the middle at the 25 and a half watching the eastbound side" "westbound ya got an evil kinevel on the overpass at the 16 with 3 chase cars " " county mounty eastbound rollin at the 46" ill check it out and see if it is as accurate as that.
Yes does work with Cingular BlackBerry as well, again lots using it.Hmm, after trying to use this program for 3 straight days, it doesnt work with Cingular
Drop me an e-mail at email@example.com and I'll help you sort it out.
The Trapster voice / SMS method does and always has worked on Verizon (and on any phone). What does not work on Verizon is the GPS app. Verizon blocks location services. Some apps, e.g. Verizon Navigator are approved (aka "on deck") with Verizon.are they going to make this for Verizon so I can get SMS's????
If anyone knows how to "jailbreak" Verizon GPS on BlackBerry, please let me (us) know as there are a bunch of folks on Verizon BBs who would like to use Trapster!
