The organizations believe that it is “the crazy thing” that thanks to the apps, road users know exactly where they are using the flash. They can adjust their speed this way. Such apps are already prohibited in countries such as Germany and Slovakia. However, the police in the Netherlands do not want to know about such a ban, the program reports. “We do not recognize the sketched image that there is danger on the road because people are braking hard.” On the contrary, the police think it is good that people are better at speeding up places where checks are made. That is, after all, the purpose of the controls.
To prohibit the apps, the law would have to be amended. Minister Grapperhaus says he is monitoring the effect of the ban in Germany.

Pop-ups motivated motorists not to be distracted. Minister Cora van Nieuwenhuizen responded enthusiastically to the support of the campaign by Waze.
