Mobile camera alert service launches

Knowledge is power

CamTracker is a new UK-based service that sends SMS alerts to your phone about new mobile police speed camera locations.

CamTracker subscribers will receive text message alerts on their hands-free mobile phone whenever a mobile police speed camera is reported in their local area.

The company said that it "uses the latest online technology to distribute SMS alerts to its subscribers within seconds of a mobile safety camera site being reported in their local area". Each text message alert provides the location and direction of the police speed camera site. No special equipment is needed, just a hands-free mobile phone.

It costs 35p per day and accounts are manageable online, so you can choose your preferred locations for alerts and what time of day you wish to receive them.

    Good news, more power to the people!

    Great idea, but what is the 'local area', is this my local area, or local to the location of my phone.

    When travelling over the country, would be more useful to get updates about camera local to oneself.

    From their website...

    "CamTracker is an SMS based service, sending a text message alert to you mobile phone when a mobile speed camera is reported in your chosen area - you can choose up to 5 counties to receive alerts for."

    OK, no points on the licence but it won't take long to rack up those 60 quids!!

    i agree with above, no points but at 35p per day...doesn't ACTUALLY make any financial sense when you think about it. to me its just another way to get money off us (general public - motorists in this case)
