An App For Everything

It appears there is a cell phone app for just about everything. There is an app on the market that notifies cell phone users of DWI checkpoints in the local area. I read about this feature in a recent article in the USA Today. Several US Senators were not pleased about this new technology and sent a letter to major cell phone manufacturers asking them to disable the feature. So far only one company, Research In Motion, has responded to the request.

Technology continues to be an ongoing factor for police- USA Today ran an article several months ago on the effects of twitter on DWI checkpoints. Police contend these social networking sites sabotage their efforts to combat drunk driving. However, some police departments are using social networking sites, including Facebook to highlight certain DWI cases.
