Speed Gun App – Increasing Awareness of Urban Speeding

The objective of the Speed Gun App is to empower government officials and transportation advocates. It is well known that speeding, particular in urban areas, is extremely dangerous pedestrians and cyclists. However, concerned citizens are often powerless to tackle these problems. The Speed Gun App will allow users to obtain the approximate speed of passing cars. Its use is not intended for enforcing, but instead for drawing awareness to localized speeding problems.
