This is the first time I have heard of DUI avoidance apps and I feel they should be removed from the app store. Drunk Driving is dangerous and irresponsible; an app that helps you to get away with it is disgusting.
"I have the power!!"
I agree with LBowen though I see this as another thing by Apple to control every situation. I highly doubt that you will see these Apps removed from Android.
The only time Apple actually pulls a app for valid reasons, hell watch out its about to snow!
Meh - a lot of bars in the SF Bay Area make sure their patrons are aware of the checkpoints; DUI convictions cut profits.
Apple has too much control over devices that you bought and paid for. I can't believe there hasn't been a huge public outcry over their monopolistic behavior. People just take it and love doing it,..................Hmm,.....
I have, from direct personal experience, a real hatred for drunken drivers. They deserve to be locked away for long periods of time, every time they're caught. So I don't like the Idea of some blind-ass drunkard having an edge while he's driving his 2,500 Pound 'Meat-Hammer' home at speed after partying all night.
I'll not cry about them losing this set of Apps at all.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Ah ^ thats because they are fantastic marketers and know how to shush up the public.
As for drunk drivers, I recently was in an accident, nothing serious, but was bed ridden for a few days... partially my fault as I didnt have any lights (Was biking at 4am)... Drunk driver swerved off the lane to the opposite lane on which I was biking...I saw him and quickly dashed off, lost balance and fell.... luckily another driver saw the entire incident... The drunk driver was VERY apologetic and was in tears....and i was in a partial state of shock for a few seconds... took me some time to realize what happened and what could have happened.
Anywho, cops arrived at the scene, paramedics as well (my first ever experience with them). They asked me if i needed to go to the hospital etc, did a few basic tests (walking, hand eye coordination -> touch nose, ear etc.... Very interesting) Ruled out anything, and gave me a ride back home.... Anywho, was in bed without a computer for 2 days... instead i read a wonderful novel, The Storm
Not only in California, but other states as well. I know even Texas (the most drunk-drivenist place I've ever lived) has a bill in place that says police must publicize the checkpoints beforehand as well.
Statistics show that DUI checkpoints don't deter drunk driving unless they're publicized. This app is publicity.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
This is so pointless, a person DUI will not be able to operate these apps :P. Also Trapster is for speeders mainly :), i got it on my phone too :P lol.
