Boston's Safest Driver Competition

Ever wonder if you’re as good a driver as you think you are?

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.

Download. Play. Win.

Challenge your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors to see who is the best driver.

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. 

Get From the App Store        Download from Google Play

The competition is open to residents in Boston and the 100 other cities and towns that make up the Metro Boston area. To get inspired, check out the first round of winners sponsored by the Arbella Insurance Foundation

The City takes personal privacy seriously. You can review the public privacy policy to understand what data the app collects and how it will be used.
