Reporting Bribes with Google Maps

Bribespot

The next time the police or a government official tries to coerce you into handing over your hard earn cash for favours Bribespot wants to know about it.

Bribespot is a crowdsourced Google Map that allows individuals to report when someone has asked them for a bribe. Using the map you can report locations where bribes are requested/paid, indicate the size of the bribe and the area of government / police that tried to shake you down.

Bribespot is available as an iPhone and Android app and from your desktop. The desktop version lets you report bribes and view a Google Map of all the user submitted locations. You can also view a check-in stream of all the latest reports to Bribespot.
