After years of tug of war, he was proven to be prosecuted for this.
National Public Radio reports according to Known for the nude photo messages of teenagers, Snap removed the speedometer filter from his mobile app. The effect was launched in 2015 and allows users to overlay the current movement speed on their images. This may seem innocent at first glance, but it is also related to several fatal traffic accidents: some young people drove crazy to brag, while others wanted to solve a non-existent job reward.
In early May, a group of parents who wanted to sue the company received good news. After a lengthy court draft, it was finally decided that Snap could be held liable in a civil lawsuit. The child of the plaintiff’s parents died in a car accident that was obviously related to the filter in 2017, and was racing at a speed of more than 190 km/h.
For us, nothing is more important than the safety of the Snapchat community, so if we detect driving speed, we have previously disabled the filter.Nowadays, agricultural workers hardly use it. In view of this, we decided to completely dismantle it.
A Snap spokesperson commented on this development.
