Shitty Drivers Rejoice Over Local Speed Trap Guide

Back in the day, speedy drivers had to depend on the courtesy of a "headlight flash" from oncoming traffic to be warned of a speed trap. Good thing we live in the future. Now, all you need is a smart phone.--- A Utah-based user of the popular website Reddit started a thread asking other "Redditors" where the local speed traps were (specifically in the Salt Lake Valley) and boom, now Salt Lake City has one hell of a useful Google map that identifies pesky cop hangouts. This concept isn't anything new; there are plenty of apps that achieve the same goal. However, this user interface has a solid "fight the power" feel to it, which leads me to believe it may not stick around too long. That being said, be sure to check it out while it's here:

It's obviously not complete and that's the idea. Head over to the original thread to add your own "spottings," and they'll be plugged into the above map. As useful as this idea seems, shouldn't things like this be obsolete? I mean, why can't Utah drivers just not drive like Dominic Torretto?
