    The question isn't as silly as it sounds at all - if all you're doing is viewing traffic data then it could get the location of the traffic you're interested in from, you know, the bit of the map you're looking at. It would have to be disabled when you zoom out to a certain point though because, as my sage fellow forumites have pointed out, it would consume all the bandwidth in the known universe.

    That said, the OP clearly is conducting illegal illicit activities and doesn't want to be tracked. I've passed their IP address to the proper authorities. They should be knocking at the door about...... now.
