Beta Preview - Interactive Speedtraps and Red Light Camera Database

One of my clients has his site ready to be shared with Family and Friends to get feedback. The way I figure it, if you're reading this blog, you're a friend - so if you're interested you can take a peek.

The site is an interactive Red Light and Speedtrap database. It's set up so that you can not only browse a Google Map to see cameras and traps in your area, but so that you can also contribute. For now, you can even download the database for free and load it onto your GPS.

The philosophy is simple - if we all contribute a few of our most recognized waypoints, we'll build up an especially useful database. It's the Give a few, get thousands approach.

I for one was glad to contribute the intersection at the end of our street as a common speedtrap. It's a genuinely dangerous traffic pattern in the morning, and if more drivers knew about it, it would be a Good Thing.

So go ahead and kick the tires on the site. Please, drop me a line at if you notice anything about the site that doesn't quite work for you.
