SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF)– Driving under the influence or while intoxicated is a serious offense and a drunk driving arrest has serious consequences.
Now there’s a smartphone app for drivers who get stopped by the police for DUI/DWI, to help them deal with their case.
It’s called DueyDialer. The app not only records the driver’s conversation with the police officer, it also connects them in real time to an attorney.
The app launches when the “Trouble!” button is pushed. It automatically starts recording when you press the “Contact My Attorney Now!” button.
Daniel Delgado, one of the co-creators of DueyDialer, said the app was not made to encourage drunk driving, but to protect and preserve people’s rights.
He and his St. Louis-based team consulted with attorneys during the creation of the app to make sure it was isn’t cumbersome to use for the driver, or confrontational for the police officer.
