Senators Remove DUI Checkpoint App from Cell Phones

Posted by Unknown | Mar 11, 2014 | 0 Comments

A cell phone app, known as the “Phantom Alert” app, was recently removed from cell phones by four senators in the U.S. who deemed it dangerous and illegal.

The app works by alerting users of DUI checkpoints as they drive, thus enabling them to avoid these checkpoints. Although the senators found the apps to be a way for people to get away with driving while under the influence of alcohol and putting people in danger, the maker of the app claims that it is only to aid drivers in following traffic laws and avoid tickets. Many police officers agree with this line of thinking and have voiced their support for the app.

People who are charged with DUIs can face serious consequences. If you or someone you love has been charged with a DUI, please contact the Seattle DUI defense attorneys of the Cowan Kirk Gaston Law Firm at 866-822-1230.
