PhantomAlert Uses GPS to Help Avoid Traffic Tickets

phantom_alert2When you see a name PhantomAlert you may be inclined to think that it’s something that warns you if there’s a comic character near you.  No, this app for Android smart phones, is a GPS based system that warns you of nearby speed traps, red light cameras, speed cameras, school zones, DUI checkpoints, railroad crossings, dangerous intersections and some other “hazards” you may find while driving your car.

The company states that it has more than 400,000 points of interest in their database. These virtual landmarks are gathered with the input and reports from users and are rated for accuracy as others pass by them. The user is then warned by the system way before getting there, quoting “…you will see them before they see you.”

Some will say that drivers will only behave carefully if they see an alert.  That being the case, PhantomAlert should decrease accidents and make for safer drivers.

    Please include the barcode thing to download an app when reviewing apps. This and possibly a link to the app / publishers home site would be very helpful to me.

    This is absolutely amazing. I received this from my boyfriend a couple weeks ago because he was tired of me complaining about a recent ticket I got (only going a couple miles over the speeding limit from speeding camera). People do yourself a favor and give yourself this for Christmas because it will save you money.
