I am not advocating speeding but I do have a problem with them saying what I can and cannot have on my phone/tablet. (Of course, don’t use it while driving)Originally shared by Android Headlines – Android News & Tech NewsCalifornia Sheriffs Concerned About Waze Reporting Police Officer Locations http://androidheadlines.com/2015/01/california-sheriffs-concerned-waze-reporting-police-officer-locations.html

They’re there to help road workers or some other random task and people are reporting them. 😉 Trust me, they don’t care that they’re being reported.Joe Del Vecchio – 2015-01-26 13:11:44-0500It’s no different than back in the day when truckers reported locations via CB. Now truckers make up a large portion of the waze user base. Besides speedtraps, it’s also great for getting up to date traffic info. Have used it several times on long trips to avoid backups. I find it ironic that the police, who are installing cameras and tracking people more and more each day, are now concerned that someone is tracking back.Bryan Foster – 2015-01-26 16:30:32-0500The watchers don’t like being watched.Shazafar Khaja – 2015-01-26 21:56:48-0500If I were a cop, I’d be driving on the interstate and reporting cop location all over the place. Sure, I’m a cop and technically St that location when I reported it, there’s nothing wrong with it. 😀Joe Del Vecchio – 2015-01-26 23:53:16-0500Yeah… waze is the problem… http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jan/27/millions-of-cars-tracked-across-us-in-massive-real-time-spying-program
