Drive Safe

“Statistics show that getting behind the wheel of a car is probably the riskiest thing any of us do on any given day.” – Russ Rader of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. 

There are more than 6,000,000 crashes in the US each year resulting in over 2,000,000 injuries. But what can you do, crashes are just random bad luck, right?

Not exactly… Our analysis of tens of millions of crashes from across the country shows that the majority of crashes happen in predictable locations. Use WatchOut to learn where these “hotspots” are and discover what you can do to avoid becoming a statistic.

Get alerts while driving

Start “Trip Mode” with the play button before you drive to get verbal alerts for upcoming hotspots. WatchOut combines vehicle telemetry with hotspot data to trigger only the most relevant alerts. No interaction is needed and verbal alerts occur in advance of hotspots enabling clear focus at key moments. WatchOut supports a “No Map” option to further reduce any visual distraction. You can use trip mode along side your favorite navigation app to get both safety alerts and direction guidance.

Avoid crashes caused by traffic

Rear-end collisions caused by unexpectedly slowing traffic are the most common type of preventable crash. However not all slowing traffic leads to collisions. WatchOut uses live traffic data together with hotspot analysis to warn you where rear-end collisions are most likely. Live traffic data is also used to help you avoid other common collisions such as those caused by merging and turning vehicles. Have peace of mind knowing that every time you start a trip you’ll receive alerts customized for the latest traffic conditions.

Be prepared for bad weather

See where weather causes crashes. A sharp curve may be dangerous in the snow. Slowing traffic may lead to collisions in fog. Weather icons on hotspots indicate where weather conditions such as snow, rain, and fog cause crashes. Trip mode uses live weather data to provide real-time weather specific alerts.

Stay safe cycling and walking

Choose whether you want to see driving, cycling, or walking hotspots. Trip mode is available while cycling so you can get verbal warnings as you approach cycling hotspots.
