"Four U.S. senators are asking Apple, Google, Research in Motion and BlackBerry App World to stop selling apps that the senators believe encourage drunk driving. Though no apps were named specifically, U.S. Senators Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) and Tom Udall (D-N.M.) wrote that they were concerned about programs that alerted drivers to the location of DUI checkpoints in their vicinity. ... 'this technology should not be promoted to your customers -- in fact, it shouldn't even be available.'" (03/23/11)
