Police Chief calls users of iPhone speed monitoring app cowards
It's not uncommon to pass by an intersection and notice a police vehicle using a radar gun to monitor the speed of passing cars. Some drivers are unable to reduce their speed – resulting in a hefty ticket. With an eclectic mix of apps available for iPhone users, there are some that empowers drivers to know where common police hideouts are located using GPS. For one Washington, D.C. Police chief, Cathy Lanier, the use of these apps are only done by cowards - those who use such software to get ahead one step from the police. Lanier goes on to say that the technology is a “cowardly tactic” and “people who overly rely on those and break the law anyway are going to get caught.” On the other hand of the spectrum, there are proponents that hail these apps. Joe Scott, founder and CEO of PhantomAlert goes on to defend the argument that 9 out of 10 police departments across the country support his software.
