BMW Speed Trap Warning Service Requires Paying To Avoid Tickets

Save your money, don’t speed.

Subscription services are a dime a dozen today, and automakers want a piece of that recurring revenue pie. BMW, which attempted to charge customers a yearly fee for access to Apple CarPlay before backing down, has introduced another subscription called the Traffic Camera Information service. The service alerts drivers to various speed cameras, radar detectors, and red-light cameras. However, while BMW offers a three-month trial on select 2021 models, it will cost $25 for 15 months after that.
