Blame terrorists if you get a speeding ticket while driving in France

Added: 28.04.2017 14:26 | 7 views | 0 comments


Drivers in France might be able to blame terrorists for their next speeding ticket, as police there crack down on mobile apps warning of their presence.
It's already illegal for smartphones and other GPS devices in France to warn of nearby fixed radars used to issue automatic penalties for speeding, so road information apps from Waze, Coyote and TomTom lose some of their functionality on crossing the French frontier.

Apps like Waze gather warnings from a community of users and put them on a handy map -- but the government decree, which could enter effect in late July, also extends the information blackout to all electronic driver-assistance or navigation systems -- whether smartphone apps, websites or social networks that inform users of the location of the police.
