WAZE APP - Will it soon be illegal to use? NYPD sends "Cease & Desist" letter to Waze!
Updated: Feb 12, 2019
Gizmodo.com reports that the New York Police Department sent a cease & desist letter to
Waze.com, claiming that its users are causing a dangerous situation by posting to the site the location of DUI checkpoints and other alerts (obviously to alert travelers to speed traps). Waze is owned by Google, so this may be another issue decided by the Courts. Will it be the First Amendment freedom of speech vs. interference with official police business?
UPDATE on February 6, 2019: Since this post by Gizmodo.com, Google issued a response that it will probably not change the way the Waze app works. Stay tuned:
