TomTom Sold User Data to Dutch Police

TomTom sold user data to Dutch police, and says it was "to help them identify congested areas for safety reasons and to help determine where road capacity needs to be increased." Unfortunately, it looks like the police had other ideas in mind, as they used the data to determine locations for speed traps! As you can guess, customers are none too happy with their data being sold.

More details over at Consumer Reports, and a video from TomTom's CEO Harold Goddijn on the issue.
