New Google Maps Feature Alerts Users to 'Speed Traps'.

As a whole, the Google Maps feature lets you pin locations where traffic has slowed down.

These can include spots where there is construction, lane closures or disabled vehicles.

It also lets drivers pin "speed traps.".

"Speed traps" are areas where police cars hide to catch drivers who are speeding.

The option comes from the Google-owned navigation app, Waze.

The new app option is not popular with police.

In a letter earlier this year, the NYPD issued a complaint to Google about the feature.

We demand that Google LLC, upon receipt of this letter, immediately remove this function from the Waze application, NYPD, via letter.

The department recently told 'The Washington Post' that they are in "productive talks" with the tech giant
