Mobile Speed Cameras
As drivers we tend to learn where all the stationary cameras are along our daily commute, and we slow down accordingly. Mobile speed cameras, on the other hand, can be difficult to spot in time because they are contained in marked or unmarked vehicles and set up in different locations every day. The vans just park on the side of the road and capture as many moving violations in that area as they can.
With Trapster, you have the world’s largest driving community working together to mark the location of these traps so you will be alerted to these mobile speed camera locations. These traps are kept live in the system for two hours afterthe last confirmed report, because we only want the most recent and relevant information.
Using Trapster to Stay Informed
Marking and voting on mobile speed traps will provide the most current information on the road, and you can use the collected data from many other drivers to make your journey better. By submitting these speed traps, and voting on the ones that already exist, you can help other drivers with even more accurate information.
These traps have become increasingly popular over the last few years because they are far more effective than most stationary cameras. Still, there are a number of areas in the community where these traps regularly appear, so you can also mark that area as a favorite spot, which will tell drivers to be cautious, even if no one else has marked a mobile speed camera that day.Creative Commons: Mobile Speed Camera from freefoto.com and Mobile Speed Camera 2 from generaloverflow.com
