According to Android Police, Google has added speed trap and crash reporting to Maps. This is similar to features found in the Google owned Waze app. Right now it is limited to only navigation mode and not everyone has access to the reporting features.

Take a peek at the Maps UI the next time you're navigating, and you may have a new report button down at the bottom of the screen. Tap that, and you can tell Google you've encountered either a crash or a speed trap (see above). Currently, this only works in navigation mode, but it's just a test.
