Heading out in the car but don’t want
to get pulled up by cops or caught out by speed cameras?
Speedwarnings offers an SMS update
service; text a regional shortcode to receive regular updates on
police and camera activity in your area (as tracked by parent company
Road Info; there’s a phone number for ringing in your own reports).
The site also offers the slightly less socially questionable option
of fuel price updates for cheap service stations in Mebourne, though
at 55 cents a message you’d want to be getting a big discount to make
the subscription worthwhile. Speedwarnings currently covers Victoria
only. If your GPS supports it, another alternative for general road
information (including traffic levels and unexpected accidents) is
the SUNA Traffic Channel.
