I'm sure the apps are good for more than just giving drunk drivers a way out, they can help save time and prevent other drivers from being caught out on minimal violations. Besides, if you're really that far gone I'm sure looking at an app to avoid a checkpoint is definitely not going to be the first thing on your mind...

....haha! Whats next banning scanners in cars haha! What a JOKE! Lawmakers are always looking for the next animal to become a parasite on! Guess Apples app is the choice this time....if the lawmakers win, hopefully it doesn't start a TREND :]

LIke you said, what they gonna do next? Ban the scanners on the cars and radar detectors? Is not the same thing if Im on a checkpoint even If I dont drink and I call my friend that is drunk and I tell him, hey dont come thru this route, they have a check point here, is the same thing, oh, I think you are going to take control of my calls too?. US senators, do you all dont have something else useful to spend your time? We got a lot of important things that need to be solved, do you all mind to take care of at least some of them?

While I think it's a joke and a bonehead move by Apple to allow these Apps, chances are if you're wasted you're probably not gonna remember to check your iPhone for speed traps.....and you probably won't be able to read the screen anyway. Hence the concept of "impaired judgment".

seriuosly!!! this is crazy. you can get a dui from just breathing in fumes from a glass of wine in the usa. totally out of control.... we need apps like trapster to protect us from outlandish laws and police with waaaaay to much control.
03-26-2011, 01:10 AM #69DUI Check Points Are Illegal
DUI Check Points are Illegal because they infringe on the
4th Amendment. Where Law Enforcement search people and their cars with out probable cause and with out A JUDGE Warrant. And it is Specially Illegal When the US Military and MAD Engages on those searches. That is punishable under Federal Law and The American People Should Sue Under the 4th Amendment. It is time to end the Tyranny in the US and arrest and bring to justice those who commit TREASON Against the US Constitution. The Punishment Should be execution. Because Every time Some one Dishonors the US Constitution they are steeping on it and on the US Flag. This is Ridiculous. What would our Fore Founding Fathers SAY.

I can assure you that the SCOTUS has ruled on checkpoints, and have held that it is not.
Furthermore, your statements concerning searching cars w/o Probable cause are also generally incorrect as there are many exceptions to the warrant requirement; such as the automobile exception, traffic stop exception, search incident to arrest, etc.
So say you had a single glass of wine with dinner...could you be charged and convicted? Yes.
Would you want to hire an atty and fight it? Of course, but how many of you have the money to go to trial? Just for a basic, no trial DUI charge will cost ~$3500 for representation (not by the PD's office); if you want to go to trial, the atty will most likely ask for a $4-5k retainer on top of the original fee.

Disclaimer: I'm being 100% sarcastic with that but I was trying to help you understand what mortopher was probably trying to be sarcastic about.
edit: I'm not saying I have but I would be willing to bet a good number of us have driven home completely blitzed out of our minds and didn't get caught and wonder how the hell we made it home without crashing/getting a DUI. Hopefully every person that did that learned from it and that experience only happened 1 time. That being said, I can guarantee the last thing on your mind would have been looking at a screen while driving to see if you were heading into a DUI checkpoint because keeping the car as straight as possible and braking/accelerating properly while trying to not draw attention to yourself would have been your top priority.
