Can Life360 Help You Avoid a Speeding Ticket?
Families around the world use Life360 to ensure their loved ones’ safety because of its real-time location tracking and driving safety features. A common question posed by our users, however, relates to the scope of its utility: “Can Life360 help me get out of a speeding ticket?”
While the short answer is no, let’s explore why the app cannot be presented as evidence of your driving speed, and how you can instead use it to prevent getting pulled over in the first place.
Can Life360 Be Used to Prove Your Driving Speed?
If you are pulled over for allegedly driving over the speed limit, you might wonder if Life360’s tracking features could be viable proof of your actual speed. Unfortunately, no, the accuracy of speed and location information within the app, most of which is outside of Life360’s control, is not designed nor intended to be provided to traffic authorities, in order to support insurance claims, or for any other matters that may require proof of speed or location.
It’s important to note that law enforcement officers rely on their equipment or visual estimates when determining speed violations, and will not take Life360 over their own equipment.
