Apple says no to local DWI checkpoint app
BATON ROUGE- Apple denied an attorney's attempt to push the locations of DWI checkpoints to people's smartphones.
Jarrett Ambeau created the app that lists the locations of checkpoints where authorities are checking to see if people behind the wheel are intoxicated. Ambeau said the technology company said the app encouraged drunk driving.
According to Ambeau, the company wrote: "We found that your app includes content or features that encourage, promote, and/or enable drunk driving and/or includes DUI checkpoints that are not published by a law enforcement agency. This is not in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines."
The free application is available for Android phones.
