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.
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...

Nice. Way to take initiative bro
Edit:I'll have surrounding houston areas covered
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.Originally Posted by Shelbrain
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?
