Looking for a new way to dodge speed traps set by police? Look no further than Trapster.com, a website that has created new technology to allow motorists to alert other motorists using their mobile phones to offer details on speed traps they encounter on the road.

"Trapster works like this: Go to the Web site, and sign up for a free membership. Then download the Trapster software to your cell phone or PDA. Tenereillo said that most current-generation cell phones, Blackberries and other PDA's can accommodate the Trapster software," CNN says.

If you see a police officer yourself while on the road, all you have to do it punch in #1 on your phone or dial their designated toll free numbers. Any other trapster.com users are then alerted by phone whey near that same trap. Stats for Speed Trap Alerts via SMS Trending: Older & Average
