Submission + - Senators petition to censor DUI checkpoint apps (appleinsider.com)

mysidia writes: Senators, Harry Reid, Charles Schumer, Frank Lautenberg and Tom Udall, sent etters on Tuesday requesting Apple, Google, and RIM remove or modify apps that notify users of police checkpoints. According to the senators, the apps are "harmful to public safety", because drunk drivers could use them to evade police detection.
BlackBerry maker RIM ceded to the request on Wednesday.
