Keep safe in the car with Speed Limit Alarm

Speed Alarm 

Ever start driving down the highway, music blasting, windows down and next thing you know you look down and you are going 15 to 20 over the speed limit? Don't worry, you aren't the only one, sometimes it is to easy to get in the zone, and want to just go without checking the speedometer, but gone are those days. Speed Limit Alarm is a great app for any BlackBerry lover who spends a lot of time in the car, and the concept behind it is quite simple. The application contains a built in analog speedometer which users can set the speed of the designated roads (prior to begining your journey to keep it safe) and if your vehicle reaches this speed and exceeds it the device will beep alerting the driver they have exceeded the limit. For 99 cents this is a great safety application that should be installed on every BlackBerry to ensure that while on the roads you are alert and aware of your speed easily.

I'd rather they make an app for those oblivious individuals who can't even manage to DO the speed limit.

I wonder what effect an app like this would have on my battery if I don't have my phone plugged into the car charger. Anyone have any experience with this app?

This is a bad implementation of a good idea. Let me explain, does anyone know the speed limit on every section of road they will be driving everyday? How do you change the speed limit while driving onto a new section? If you don't stop before fiddling with it, you're setting yourself up for a ticket. As a proffesional driver, I can tell you, this app is functionally useless.

Their App World description states, "should not be used while driving."

(Yes, I know what they mean, but it's still funny.)

I find it interesting that we've been brainwashed into thinking that following the speed limits makes driving 'safe'. What makes driving dangerous is the fact we are passing stationary objects at 70 - 80 MPH, and oncoming traffic at 140 - 160 MPH. Speeding or not, decelleration at impact from any of these speeds is fatal. Driving is a risk, always, and if the flow of traffic is greater or less than the posted speed limit, following the limit increases your chance of a collision.

You know what would be more useful? An app which uses one of the many speed-camera databases and alerts you when, and only when, you're about to get caught going over the speed limit.

Any new app is nice to have though.

I think your car already has an app for that...it's called a speedometer.

mburfeind

it seems like a good addition to a turn-by-turn or live traffic app. not sure it's super appealing as a stand alone app.

chris538

Only a complete idiot would use an app like this........

99 cents? The speedometer in the car is free and easier to use!

Halifax Guy

Why bother with this waste of time? A good driver knows how fast they are going without looking at the speedometer or needing a useless application like this one to warn them of something they should be aware of in the first place.

MaxPayne79

does this app punch u in the balls when u pass ur set limit, cause i could really use that and so can my wallet ever since my 4 tickets from last year.

"For 99 cents this is a great safety application that should be installed on every BlackBerry to ensure that while on the roads you are alert and aware of your speed easily. "

Did someone pay you to say that? This is pointless, as a driver you should know what the speed limit is!

Furthermore a good satnav will tell you your current speed, what the limit is and warn of fix cameras as well.

Even at 99 cents, my car speedometer does this for nothing.

"Ever start driving down the highway, music blasting, windows down and next thing you know you look down and you are going 15 to 20 over the speed limit? Don't worry"

You'd better worry.
You ignore your vehicles display, but can fixate on, and/or hear your telephone, over the music and road noise.

Unless you get your priorities straight. Do other motorists, pedestrians and cyclists a favour. Give up your license and stick to public transit.

This App is a frickin' mockery of traffic safety laws.

NO_CARRIER

Bah, both my cars already have this function built into the on board computer.
