RIM removing DUI checkpoint apps like Trapster from App World


Senators from Nevada, New York, New Jersey, and New Mexico have approached RIM in regards to DUI checkpoint application in App World saying that they give “drunk drivers a free tool to evade checkpoints, putting innocent families and children at risk.”  RIM has responded by agreeing to remove them from BlackBerry App World.  There’s no word if letters were also sent to Apple and Google to remove their apps (if any), but BlackBerry has been confirmed.

One application you may have heard of called Trapster was vacant from App World yesterday, according to sources.  Trapster was popular for finding speed traps and DUI check points on a live map, so you can know in advanced when approaching police, or detour around them.
