Speed trap sharing social network for mobile phones
Every year law enforcement deploy more advanced techniques for trapping and penalizing drivers for exceeding posted speed limits. The impact for drivers has been large fines and increased insurance premiums which often outweigh the magnitude of the simple infraction. Fortunately, advances in cell phone technology now allow drivers to respond by preventing themselves from getting into these situations in the first place.

With Trapster, drivers electronically mark the location of observed speed traps or traffic light cameras. With this user contributed data, the Trapster system tracks your driving location and alerts you when approaching a marked speed trap or camera. Users rate each other's traps, and over time the system establishes a confidence level for traps, and learns the credibility of users. The new Trapster service uses a combination of location technologies on mobile phones such as GPS and Wi-Fi positioning from Skyhook Wireless to build the foundation for this new community.
Mobile consumer service
"Who hasn't unintentionally increased driving speed in order to avoid a dangerous driver only to inadvertently pass a concealed police car?" said Pete Tenereillo, Founder, & President. "Trapster levels the playing field for drivers by helping them share information with each other about police activity." Trapster is the first mobile consumer service to combine GPS and Wi-Fi positioning from Skyhook Wireless to ensure the accuracy of user reports and alerts.

"The combination of GPS and Skyhook technology offers the best coverage and accuracy across an entire metropolitan area."
