Google Maps allows some users to report car accidents and police speed



Google Maps is one of the world's most popular navigation applications, but if you want to avoid expensive speed tickets, your best bet is right now Waze. Waze allows users to share traffic information and everything else worth knowing while driving. You may not know this, but Waze was purchased by Google back in 2013. And while the Waze team was mostly left to do it, Google appears to plan to make use of some of the transferred knowledge.

Google did not announce anything new, but AndroidPolice found that some Reddit users already share their impressions about features that most of us have not even seen. Namely, the additional options to report a crash or a speed trap from Google Maps.

According to the comments, if you have the feature available, Google Maps lets you report one of the observations on your current location. It seems that it only lets you do that if the app is navigating you somewhere, and not if you're just going to see a police patrol and want to alert your carriers. Of course you can always set a destination and do it then, but it's a bit of a problem.

Since the new features are in some test phases, do not expect to see police cuts yet. With few users who can report and even fewer actually do, keep your eyes open and your speed reasonable (as you should nevertheless).

Does this mean that Google wants to slow out Waze and lure users to their Maps app? Very unlikely, at least for the moment. Anyway, bringing more features to most users, go to navigation app is a welcome move from Google, and we hope to see them on our devices soon enough.
