Boston's Safest Driver Competition

Ever wonder if you’re as good a driver as you think you are? This is your chance to find out.

Boston’s Safest Driver is a smartphone app developed in partnership with The City of Boston's Vision Zero Task Force, The Mayor's Office of New Urban Mechanics and Cambridge Mobile Telematics. The app provides you helpful feedback on your driving based upon five metrics: speed, acceleration, braking, cornering, and phone distraction. All you have to do is download it on your iPhone or Android and start moving. Weekly prizes are available for residents of Boston and these communities. 

Download. Play. Win.

That’s right, win! With support from the Arbella Insurance Foundation, we are giving out more than $9,000 in prizes during the competition. Each week, prizes will be awarded to the top drivers, the most improved, new app users, and even people who take car-free trips on a bicycle, bus, or train.

It’s easy to play. Just download the app and enter your email address and zip code. Then, go about your daily travel. Users can log trips as drivers, passengers, or while on a bicycle, train, or bus. Check out your scores at the end of a trip and follow the tips to improve. You could win the $2,000 grand prize!
