Apple Maps to report road hazards, speed traps

Apple Maps is working on an update that will give users the ability to report road hazards, accidents, or even speed traps.

The new features are being tested in the iOS 14.5 beta, by public beta testers as well as developers.

With the new features, drivers will be able to report road issues and incidents by using Siri on their iPhone or through Apple's CarPlay, the company claims. Commands such as "there's a crash up ahead," or "there's a speed trap here," will let Siri mark a location, while a user can removes an icon by issuing commands such as "the hazard is gone" or the "incident is no longer here." 

Apple is planning to release the update to the general public later this spring.
