Default Escort Live! Full of False/Erroneous Red Light and Speed Camera Reports

Since trying to use Escort Live! again after the recent update, I have noticed dozens, if not hundreds, of reports of red light cameras and speed cameras in states where their use is prohibited.

I thought the Defender database was quite good, so maybe these are all erroneous user reports? Is there a way to delete these en-masse to correct the database, and prevent users from incorrectly reporting them in the future?

Came here to report the same thing. Since updating to the latest Escort Live app on Android, I'm getting redlight camera warnings when it didn't happen before. My state does not have redlight cameras.

We were having server related issues which have been resolved. If you are still receiving these alerts in error, please let me know, along with a location of a camera alert.

Thank you

Yes, still receiving new alerts to red light and speed cameras in states with neither. Just scrolling through the map I see plenty of other erroneous reports.

I have "thumbed down" several reports, but it looks like new ones are being continuously added

Why is it possible for users to even report these in states where they are not in use?

The issue has been resolved for quite some time.

Not only has this not been resolved, but you just posted in another thread that you do not plan on resolving this

There isn't anything to resolve. It is more a personal preference and suggestion that you have on how that it should work from my perspective. It may be inconvient to you personally but this is how the App and Database works. People are free to report.... Some people see cameras at redlights and think they are speed enforcement camera when in fact they are not.

Let me clarify.

When you first reported this, there was an issue causing all camera alerts to be in incorrect locations. That issue was resolved when I replied in July.

You continued to report erroneous alerts and we found these are user reports. You can individually select these as false alerts by tapping on the alert in the app.

Your other discussion thread was about preventing alerts in areas where cameras are prohibited.

This is exactly the issue. I have been reporting them as false alerts, but they keep reappearing. I assume because other users are creating these false alerts. The obvious solution would be to not accept reports of speed/RLCs in states where they are prohibited, but it sounds like that is too difficult for your app developers to figure out
