We are a little late on this one. Version 3.1.0 has been available for the BlackBerry since March 31, but we just heard about it today. This version brings support to three new trap types:
- mobile speed cameras/vans
- combo cameras
In case you’ve never heard of it, Trapster is an application for drivers who think that risking people’s lives and physical integrity in order to get one or two minutes earlier at their destination is a lot more important than, well, not risking people’s life and limb including that of people who do not agree with these drivers’ scale of priorities.
Trapster not only shows you a map that indicates the presence of speed traps along and around your way, it also lets you indicate their precise location yourself in case you’re aware of speed traps that are not shown in the map. By sharing the information in the network, all users get an ever more accurate map of all current locations, slow down when they’re near the traps and resume their illegal speeding once they’re far enough past the radars.
Trapster is no stranger here. Ronen, Luis and Nate have all written about it before. Ronen, twice. We’ll always share whatever info we have as soon as we get it. You’re all invited to share your experiences with Trapster in their own forum or right here in our comment section. Your obituary is particularly welcome.
