OH CRAP APP-TC MON


THEY CALL IT.

THE "OH CRAP" APP.

IT'S A SMARTPHONE APP THAT HELPS YOU --

IF YOU GET PULLED OVER FOR DRUNK DRIVING.

A LAW FIRM IN IOWA CREATED IT.

BUT LAW ENFORCEMENT DOESN'T LIKE IT.

HERE'S YOUR ABC7 EXTRA! Return to index of stories...


OH CRAP APP-PKG


THE 'OH CRAP' APP HELPS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU CAN AND CAN'T DO --

IF YOU SEE SIRENS BEHIND YOU, AND YOU'RE GETTING PULLED OVER FOR SUSPICION OF DRUNK DRIVING.

"One of the biggest mistakes people make is thinking that they know their rights."

ATTORNEY BOB REHKEMPER HELPED CREATE THE "OH CRAP" APP.

HE SAYS IT LISTS BASIC LEGAL RIGHTS, HAS A BLOOD ALCOHOL CALCULATOR, AND AN EMERGENCY "OH CRAP" BUTTON FOR WHEN YOU GET PULLED OVER.

HIT IT --

AND GET ADVICE LIKE, "THE LESS YOU SAY THE BETTER," "BE POLITE," AND "LAWYER UP" GET SPIT OUT.

IT EVEN STARTS YOUR PHONE'S RECORDER.

SO ANYTHING YOU OR THE OFFICER SAYS IT RECORDED.

THE AUDIO COULD BE VALUABLE EVIDENCE.

"That initial interaction is documented and is recorded so it's not a matter of what somebody remembers, or he said, she said."

BUT ONE LOCAL SHERIFF DOESN'T LIKE IT.

"It's cute, if nothing else."

BUT HE'S WORRIED DURING TRAFFIC STOPS, OFFICERS MIGHT SEE THE PHONE AND THINK IT'S A WEAPN.

PLUS, HE FEARS THE "OH CRAP" APP COULD BE USED FOR THE WRONG REASONS.

"If it stops you from being intoxicated and driving, I'm certainly in favor of it. If it tells you how to be intoxicated and drive, and get away with it, there may be some concern there."

AND IT KINDA DOES GIVE YOU HINTS ABOUT HOW TO DO THAT --

ALTHOUGH THE CREATORS SAY IT'S ABOUT BEING INFORMED, NOT SKIRTING THE LAW.

"People end up in positions and their rights become very important to them, to their family members, to their children.

That's the purpose of this app, to understand what they do, and what they don't have to do." Return to index of stories...
