Speed Trap Info

This past weekend I head to & returned from Atlantic City, NJ for a family visit. I discovered that the Atlantic City Expressway had a speed trap designation for long distances on it. Well deserved, since I observed several police cars monitoring the traffic flow. I thought it was justified since I observed many cars driving way beyond the legal limit (+20-25 mph).

This week we are recognizing, Strephon_Alkhalikoi!

Not only is he a helpful regular in our forums, but he also wrote the
Laws | Windshield Law and the GPS Receiver FAQ.
A question regarding this topic was raised over the last week and we appreciate canuk for referring the OP to this link.

Typical Misrepresentation

The following article by thenewspaper.com
has the headline and byline

"Federal Court Upholds Overnight Jail Over $15 Parking Ticket
Federal appeals court rules woman can be jailed overnight over a $15, non-jailable parking offense."

A Parking Ticket! Really?

Of course, it caught my attention.

Too bad this wasn't for Halloween...

This guy as a prank dressed up as a car seat and hit some drive through windows at fast food places. Brilliant!

I was wondering if anyone has seen a Redbox (DVD video rental kiosks) POI anywhere. I am often on the road with a return on the seat and would like to know where the nearest kiosk is.

Thank you very much.

Cannonball Record Broken

In a CNN article today, technology is cited as helping break the record for the Cannonball coast-to-coast run:


These guys seem to have better luck with traffic reporting than I do. However, it says the first turn direction from the GPS was in error. Wonder what brand of GPS they used?

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share with us the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you use it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.)

Tdlee has been a member for four and a half years.
I’m quite grateful he adopted the orphaned Olive Garden files, as I am a big fan of the Portobello mushroom ravioli. 
He has also just picked up the Moe’s Southwest Grill file.

Thanks, tdlee, we appreciate your willingness to help us continue to keep our POI files current.

New to the Forum

Hey all,

I just discovered the POI Factory and there appears to be a wealth of info here. I thank you past and present contributors for that!

I've had a Garmin Nuvi 1490LMT and have now recently purchased a Nuvi 2595LMT.

I'm just learning the basics of POIs...and writing them, so in the near future, I hope to be a contributor.

Glad to be aboard,
