FoxyTag is a free, legal and collaborative system to signal speed cameras on mobile phones. Fixed and mobile cameras will launch an alarm 15 seconds before the critical point. If you participate by signaling new cameras or by confirming existing ones, you create trust links with the other users and benefit from more reliable information. This collaborative model makes that FoxyTag is today the most complete and up to date speed camera database in the world.
FoxyTag is an open speed cameras database that can be accessed by any compatible client application.
FoxyTag motivates neither speeding nor any other risky behavior, but allows the driver to concentrate on the road instead of having is eyes fixed on the speedometer, by fear of being flashed. We observe that drivers tend to brake suddenly when they see a speed camera (even if they are not speeding), which can provoke traffic jams or even accidents (chain collisions or slidings, like in this video). FoxyTag signals in advance the presence of speed cameras, so that the driver has enough time to check his speed and adapt it if necessary.
