Njection is a website for guys like us. In addition to their forums and picture resources, they have compiled a database of more than 50,000 speed traps worldwide -- areas with high radar use and speed cameras -- that works with Microsoft Live Maps. Njection is now offering owners of Garmin GPS units the ability to download speed trap and red light camera information to their portable navigation units.

A SpeedTrap-enhanced Garmin portable GPS unit will be a great companion on a road trip, long commute, or while traveling in unfamilar areas. However, as sophisticated as the technology is getting, GPS still won't find your lost keys.

      Cars should have built in alarms that pick up speed limit transmissions on the road. If you go beyond that by 10MPH or so beyond a given length of time, then your lights should flash and turn off when you reduce your speed. And delectable if the device is disabled. Transmit the speed you are going and duration of time.

      to just chuggin..if you know anything about radar it works on a straight line principle..since you drive in the right lane and most radar traps are on the right side you become the target first..the fact that there is a speeder coming up on you is irrelevent..he does not divert the radar from you to him..unless he happens to pass you just at the right time and enter the radars beam width first ..the first vehicle to enter the beam width of the radar is clocked..then as it resets itself it calculates the speed of the next vehicle etc...if you are driving over the threshold of the speed the officer set the unit for..you become his victim regardless of the speed of any and all vehicles behind you.. you now give them time to slow down as they react to the lights on the patrol car pursuing you ..you are actually their shield for a brief second..you better reconsider just how much over the limit you go because you are under a misconception about the operations of radar..you can be stopped for a little as 1mph over if the state has declared an "absolute speed " for that road..not likely but possible..several towns in north fla on rte 10 strictly enforce "absolute speed" laws..and there is nothing you can do about it

      The best way to avoid speed traps is to go the posted speed limit.

      So on those rare occasions I'M in a hurry, going 75 MPH in a 55 zone is a danger to anyone but my gas gauge? Of course not, speed traps are just a way for municipalities to make money. Though if you rely solely on the radar detector or other device, soon you quit being as observant as you should be. Use all the technology available and still stay alert is my opinion. And 90 in a 75 zone out on the plains or in the West isn't so unreasonable as well. Driver fatigue is probably a bigger factor in highway fatalities in the West.

      How about people just drive the speed limit instead of risking everyone's lives with these gadgets to tell you how to avoid the law? News flash: the limit's there for a reason - for YOUR and EVERYONE ELSE'S protection. If everyone would drive at least reasonably close to it, then there probably wouldn't be so many accidents.

      Here's a clue.. Don't speed and you won't need it. Basically you are saying if you can afford it you are allowed to speed and take my life into your hands. Another case of let the wealthy do what they want and screw everyone else.

      with the cost of gas, and the price of a speeding ticket, isn't that enough to not speed in the first place?
      • 7 Years Ago
      If people would just drive at, or at least near the speed limit, they wouldn't have to spend hundreds of dollars trying to escape cops. Don't break the law, you won't get a ticket...its that simple...duh

      Hey, here's a tip for all you Rocket Scientists, if you don't want to get caught in a "Speed Trap", DON'T SPEED.

      The easy way to avoid speed traps is to SLOW DOWN.
      Enjoy the scenery.

      Re: John Vaughn-Spoken like a true idiot. Those cops are also the ones who will drag your lifeless body out of a car when you get in a wreck where the critical factor was speed and then have to let your family know what happened. They are also the ones that catch the person who breaks into your house and steals everything or catches the person who tries to rape a child. Speed traps are created by idiots who speed. People know cops are there but do it anyway. Look up the definition of a speed trap anyway and you will see there are actually very few according to the definition. In my opinion, those who drive too fast are egomanics who think they are above the law or think THEIR time is more valuable than the next. By the way, I'm a cop and proud of it.
