Droid app gets driver out of speeding ticket

http://translogic.aolautos.com/2011/...eeding-ticket/

Quote:
Sahas Katta got clocked by a cop doing over 40 in a 25 mph zone. He handed over his info and signed the ticket, but then remembered he was running Google MyTracks on his Motorola Droid. For the uninitiated, MyTracks is an Android app that uses the phone's GPS to record and plot where the user has travelled, allowing you to log a jog, bike ride or drive. After looking at the data and doing some research, Katta discovered that he never crested the 25 mph speed limit and decided to fight the ticket.

You can read the entire account over at SkatterTech, but for the tl;dr crowd, the cop didn't know the last time he went through radar training, when the gun was serviced or the unit's model number. OutFrontKatta then busted out the GPS data from his Droid, and after reviewing the evidence and Katta's clean driving record, the judge let him off. Granted, he may have just gotten lucky thanks to a uninformed judge and a hapless cop, but the results all the same.

I never knew, until recently, that gps detects your speed. A friend of mine gave me a gps device and I was testing it and noticed it displays your speed.

I don't think it is accurate to state that GPS detects one's speed.

And the driver didn't notice he was only traveling 25, not 40, when he was initially pulled over? Idiot.

Doesn't matter if he noticed it or not. Its not like he could have told the cop "um I wasn't going 40 so don't give me that ticket".
