GTA IV's Cop Tracking GPS Comes to Life

If you've been spending excessive amounts of time playing GTA IV this week, (and who hasn't — it has racked up $500 million and sold six million copies already), then you have come to know and love the GPS system that not only tells you where you are going, but tells you where the cops are once you've committed a crime! I, myself, have been known to shout out loud at my BF to "go the other way!" because of the 5-0 is on his tail.

So what if we could take the best part about Nico's GPS system and use it for ourselves before we get caught breaking the law? That's exactly what Speed Trap is for. To hear more about Speed Trap,


Speed Trap is a new Google Maps mashup that lets you check out your city for speed traps and photo enforcement cameras. . . before you hit the road. Members log in and pinpoint locations as they find them, so you can now go about your merry way without worrying if the police are hiding behind that shrub just off Canyon Road. Just enter your address or zip code to zoom in on the monitored areas. Speed Trap does require a registration, but thankfully, it's free. You can also send the map right to your portable nav devices, you know, in case you need it! Although no one here is telling you it's OK to speed, it is kinda nice to know where the hot spots are. We all run late from time to time, don't we?

Haha, I do the same thing to my BF. "There's a cop up ahead! Don't go that way! Don't you look at your radar?!"

We've had something like this for around here for ages now. Cant remember what the website is or I'd post it.
