Few things can make you feel chilled all over like cresting a hill a little too fast and seeing Mr. State Trooper waiting on you.
I’ve often wondered if it was possible to send the location of known speed traps to a web-site and a quick Google Search reveals several, such as www.speedtrap.org. Those are okay, but real time information would be much better since local and state governments are desperate for cash and are using any way possible to get it, companies and consumers are fighting back.
That’s where PhantomALERT steps in. PhantomALERT is software that claims to help avoid tickets by alerting the user when there are red light cameras, speed traps or dangerous curves ahead. The software can be downloaded to any GPS device or smartphone. Knowing where a red light camera is located could possibly help you avoid an accident.
What has really surprised me in my research about the product is the amount of police support it receives. One officer said that he wasn’t in the business of writing tickets, but in making sure people drove more safely. He believes that PhantomALERT does that.
