Data to be used for avoiding enforcement

TomTom has announced that it is now licensing its speed camera database to third-party developers. The content includes more than 50,000 warnings spread across 24 different countries. Fixed speed cameras serve as the primary focus, but the data also includes locations of red light cameras, speed averaging systems, and 'black spots' surrounding high-risk areas that have a history of high accident rates.

The company presumably expects the content to be used for apps that help drivers avoid speeding tickets or fines at red lights. Data is said to be periodically updated with new locations and dynamic data such as likely areas for mobile camera placement.

Speed Cameras is now available to TomTom's licensing partners.
