Submission + - Man uses GPS on Droid to get out of Speeding Ticke (

SilentStaid writes: "The police accused Sahas Katta of going more than 40 mph in a 25 mph limit, according to the story, which was authored by Katta himself. Katta was a little taken aback. He said he felt sure he wasn't going quite that fast. Fortunately, his Motorola Droid cell phone enjoyed Google MyTracks, according to his account.

This charming software records your GPS tracks and even lets you watch live stats--which might not be such a good idea when you're driving.

Still, even though Katta had been meek with the traffic policeman in question, when he looked at his MyTracks afterward, he said he discovered something that was more akin to his own inner senses. The maximum speed recorded had only been 26 mph, according to the story."

Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must be first overcome. -- Dr. Johnson
