Google Maps Just Introduced a Controversial New Feature That Drivers Will Probably Love (but Police Will Utterly Hate)

October 24, 2019 / 0 views Google announced the next best thing: Starting immediately, drivers will be able to report hazards, slowdowns, and speed traps right on Google Maps. Apparently this has been rolled out in some cases to Android phones, but it will now be available across the board -- on Android and iOS. I'm excited, and I think other drivers will be, too. But one group that will likely not be happy is the police. In recent years, police have asked -- or even demanded -- that Waze drop the police-locating feature. In February, the NYPD wrote to Google: The NYPD has become aware that the Waze Mobile application ... currently permits the public to report DWI checkpoints ... Accordingly, we demand that Google LLC, upon receipt of this letter, immediately remove this function from the Waze application. The Waze feature -- and presumably the new version on Google Maps -- makes no distinction between police who are running speed traps, manning DWI checkpoints, or simply sitting by the side of the road.
