With the growth of mobile technology and most notably, smart phones with access to the Android Market or the Mac/iPhone/iPad App store, figured it would only be a matter of time before someone came up with the great idea of sharing information regarding speed traps and red light cameras and making it available to others via an app. Free apps include RadarActive Speed Traps, Trapster, iRoadAlert, paid apps range in price from $10 month for PhantomAlert to 99 cents f0r SpeedCam Live, SpeedTraps Live and a few others.
Reviews vary for the different apps but most agree that a monthly subscription fee of $10 might be a bit much even with all the bells and whistles that PhantomAlert claims to have. Trapster refers to their app’s users as a “social community” dedicated to sharing information about how to avoid a speed trap, red light cam or even hazardous road conditions. For those who have already racked up points on their driving record or paid traffic ticket fines that they thought were sky high, a little app can go a long way, just don’t become so absorbed in looking at the app on your phone that you forget to concentrate on the road in front of you.
