"Police chief denounces 'cowardly' iPhone users monitoring speed traps. Area drivers looking to outwit police speed traps and traffic cameras are using an iPhone application and other global positioning system devices that pinpoint the location of the cameras.
That has irked D.C. police chief Cathy Lanier, who promised her officers would pick up their game to counteract the devices, which can also help drivers dodge sobriety checkpoints.
"I think that's the whole point of this program," she told The Examiner. "It's designed to circumvent law enforcement -- law enforcement that is designed specifically to save lives."
The new technology streams to iPhones and global positioning system devices, sounding off an alarm as drivers approach speed or red-light cameras.
Lanier said the technology is a "cowardly tactic" and "people who overly rely on those and break the law anyway are going to get caught" in one way or another. - Source

They can watch us but we can't watch them???
FUCK THEM! If the cops think they can cheat with cameras and video for speed traps, then we have every right for counter-surveillance to know and do something about it, that includes warning our fellow CITIZENS.
