Traffic officers in the Western Cape have been using tech to crack down on drunk and irresponsible driving.
Anyone who has braved the morning traffic will know what I mean by irresponsible driving.
You don’t have to be drunk. You just have to be an idiot.
Even if you’re driving safely, the odd speed camera can still pin you for going slightly over the limit.
The good news? If you want to adjust your driving to avoid roadblocks, traffic traps and speed cameras, Google Maps is here to help, reports BusinessTech.
South African motorists will soon be notified about speed traps through the Google Maps app.
According to TechCrunch, the feature – which was already available in some territories – will allow Google Maps users to see speed limits, speed cameras and mobile speed cameras.
It will also notify them of upcoming traffic traps.
The current speed limit will be visible in the bottom corner of the app, while speed traps will show up as icons on the roads.
TechCrunch said that rollout is taking place on both Android and iOS. However, Android users will additionally be able to report mobile speed cameras and stationary cameras, while both iOS and Android users will be able to see those updates during their drive.
Sorry new Huawei users, you might not be able to access this one.
As for the rest of the Android users out there, use the app accordingly.
With great power comes great responsibility.
