No DWI Checkpoint apps from App Store?

Will the apple store remove apps that give users Police DWI check point locations? As of now the answer appears to be no. Apple's vice president of software technology had this to say, "One of the things we found is that some of these apps are actually publishing data on when and where the checkpoints are [using information] published by the police departments... They beleive that these checkpoints provide a deterrent effect." In other words the police departments want this information out there because it provides a deterrent to drunk driving.

Reinstate your Missouri License

I've copied how to reinstate your Missouri Drivers License after losing it for DWI below. This information is from the Missouri Department of Revenue's website.

A person whose driving privilege is suspended or revoked may have his or her driving privilege reinstated after the suspension or revocation period is served if all requirements are filed with the Department of Revenue. If a driver does not satisfy the reinstatement requirements, the driving privilege remains suspended or revoked.
Anyone suspended or revoked for points assessed as a result of an alcohol-related conviction must meet the following reinstatement requirements:
Pay a $45 reinstatement fee.
File and maintain proof of financial responsibility for two years from the suspension or revocation date.
Provide proof of successful completion of a Substance Abuse Traffic Offender Program (SATOP) or comparable program. The Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse will send this form directly to the department after the program has been completed. Any questions regarding SATOP comparable programs should be directed to a certified SATOP Offender Management Unit or the Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse at (573) 522-4020.
Any driver revoked for at least one year is also required to take and pass the complete driver examination and apply for a new license at proper fee.
