Google began integrating the Waze community’s accident, construction and road closure intelligence into Google Maps apps for Android and iOS, but there is a glaring omission — notifications about police speed traps.

Conservative-minded Google confirms that Waze users’ alerts that a cop car is a mile up ahead, either out in the open or hidden, did not make the final cut in the integration of Google’s $1 billion Waze acquisition.

This real-time, on-the-road intelligence from Waze users, pointing to disabled vehicles on the shoulder, traffic ahead, a downpour, and the presence of radar-wielding cops is one of the most attractive aspects of Waze.

However, as a grown-up public company, Google apparently didn’t want to punch the ticket, and chance getting on the wrong side (or right side, depending on your perspective) of the law.
