Closed-Source Software Helps DUI Offenders Get Off

This is interesting. In Florida, some people accused of DUI want the breathalyzer technology audited but the manufacturers won’t release the code for the breathalyzer’s software. As a result, the convictions might be thrown out.

Hopefully Florida will opt for open-source breathalyzers and this will start a trend in government towards software that can be held accountable.
