 NYPD ORDERS GOOGLE TO STOP SHOWING DRIVERS WHERE THE COPS ARE AT

The New York Police Department (NYPD) sent a cease and desist letter to Google last week, demanding that the company stop allowing its customers to report police checkpoints using their GPS apps.

The report mentioned Google Maps and Waze, the popular GPS app that allows users to share information about hazards on the road, including the presence of police. The app allows drivers to pinpoint the exactly location of police and report sightings to fellow drivers, saving untold people from speeding tickets and arrests due to victimless crimes.

However, the NYPD says that Google is helping users break the law. The letter sent to Google last week focused specifically on the issue of impaired drivers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The issue of impaired driving is real, and scary, reality on today's roads, so I can understand why NYPD would take issue with that.
