Android can get you out of a speeding ticket
By Mark Zalewski

Recently we got to know the story about one college student whose name is Sahas Katta and who was terrified when he got his very first speeding ticket. "In 2010, he got pulled over by an officer and accused of doing 40 mph in a 25 mph zone. Even though Sahas was sure he wasn't speeding, he handed his license and registration without asking any questions. Luckily for him, Sahas later realized that he had My Tracks by Google running on his Motorola DROID all along, which eventually helped him avoid getting fined" reports PhoneArena. As you can understand from the article's name, the free app which tracks info like traveled distance, average and max speed by using GPS data etc., visualizes it on a map. So when Sahas was defending himself in traffic court, his main trump was his Motorola DROID together with the apps by Google My Tracks. So he presented the log of the trip, which clearly showed a maximum speed of only 26 mph. So what do we have? High tech is fighting for justice.
