  • GPS coordinates of police spots (speedtraps) for North America inside

    Ok, I really wanted to have GPS locations of the favorite police traps for North America. And the only way to get them was to enter them myself. So I put it on the dedicated website: www.ProjectEZP.com. Please use them and, please add more spots.

    PS. It is in the early stage and I am working to make it beter. In particular, I am writing separate software, which will notify about police spot so do not forget to check for updates.

    Good luck.

        I have a few road trips coming up in spring.. this will be REAL helpful! Getting it together with Routis would be outstanding, but a stand alone program would be good too!

          Another good site to check out is AAA.com. They have a list of known hiding spots...

                I would also like to know how to use this kind of thing in iguidance. I haven't really noticed any way to add anything to the existing map. I know I can add favourite locations but other than that...

                  I know about speedtrap.org. The only problem is it has "human description" of spots. I like, when it is in GPS memory and it alerts me authomatically.

                    Blaster,

                    That sounds really cool .

                    I have been thinking about something like this for several months.
                    I use Routis and Microsoft map point 2004.

                    Here are some of my thoughts I have had.

                    As you say it would be very useful to have GPS coordinates of known speed traps.

                    But in addition it would be even better to have the ability to report "live" sightings of speed traps and the software would post those GPS coordinates over the internet, which could be download via wifi or GPRS modem back into the carputer working with Routis or Iguidance.

                    Also besides or in addition to reporting known and “LIVE” speed traps carputer users would be able to report traffic incidents, stalled cars and other major traffic delaying incidents. “LIVE” speed traps and other incidents could be set to expire after an allotted time period unless renewed or sighted again latter by another carputer user. The software could also log this data to identify the most commonly used speed traps and times when they are commonly in use by police.

                    Voice command recognition programs like Navivoice by 0l33l could be use to take down and execute “LIVE” sightings.

                    Just a few thoughts on the subject . What do you think?

                      That is somewhat possible. But the problem is that people on these boards are scattered around the world. I'd say that I'm an exception, there are a few members in my area

                      And yeh, NaviVoice could do that. Reminds me, I wanted to make an add speedcam func to NaviVoice (which now supports Map Monkey)

                        Blaster,

                        Having looked into your website closer and I digress on some of my points.

                        It appears you have already made some of my wishes come true .

                        Thanks great job you are doing!

                        Although the live reporting would be a cool feature. I will be sure to submit my sightings to you for the D.C, Annapolis, Baltimore area.

                        Thanks Again,

                          Thanks for good feedback. I also want to have something "up to the minute". It is good way to go, but I will get to this point, when we will have large number of people with computers/internet in their cars. Otherwise it could be days, between two internet edquipled car will travel though the same police spot.

                          So I will keep it in mind and please submit your findings.

                            What areas of NA are covered? I would love to contribute to the WA state database, but I use a pocket pc for GPS (tomtom) and I don't know how I can create my own poi database. I would gladly do it if there was a simple way to add a speedtrap location by pressing one button as you're driving.
                            If you can show me how it's done, I'll make a small database of the area I live in. I have a Sensoro Silver Bullet radar which is one of the best out there, so I will detect any radar/laser activity without being distracted by other things.

                              I had converted data to tomtom format. Look on the projectezp.com under download tomtom. It has many laser traps in WA. please try it. I will check, how to capture point in tomtom.
                              cheers
