Brilliant use of crowd sourcing.

The streets of Tehran are patrolled by Gasht-e Ershad, the notorious “morality police” who search the streets for people in improper clothes, then snatch them off in a van to for detainment. One new app amazingly helps women (and men) dodge them.

It basically works like Waze, but instead of marking speed cameras or speed traps or traffic or whatever, the app marks where the Gasht-e Ershad are.
