Snapchat removes "Speed Filter" after US court ruled they could be sued for a fatal car crash.
Snapchat had the filter since 2013 and it let users show how fast they were moving and share it with friends.

And in light of that, we are removing it altogether". This decision could have vast implications for similar services like TikTok and Instagram. Link
