US Senators Ask Apple (and others) to Pull Police Evasion Apps


CNET is reporting that several US Senators have requested Apple to pull some apps designed to alert people where the police have set up check points. A similar letter has been sent to other smartphone developers.

The senators express concern that many Americans are dying in DUI related crashes and that the apps that alert users to DUI checkpoints are harmful to public safety. Senator Schumer’s office has this press release concerning the letter.

Trapster appears to be the kind of app to which the letter refers.
