App Shows Location of Police Radar Detectors

There's now an app that helps drivers avoid police radar detectors. It's called Trapster. The free app works just like a radar detector in your cell phone that's constantly scanning.

The idea is based on drivers helping other drivers. When a driver spots a police speed trap, or an accident, they can report it. From there the reports instantly appear on everyone's phones nearby.

Trapster started on Peter Tenereillo's home computer, now a small staff talks with millions online. Every day 20,000 to 50,000 new users download the app.
