- The app will notify you if you’re speeding in an active school zone.
- If you’re a motorist, the app will warn you if there’s a cyclist on the road ahead or pedestrians in the crosswalk ahead if it detects you aren’t going to stop.
TravelSafely™ saves lives and improves traffic through cellular-based preemption systems to help emergency responders arrive safely and alerts motorists miles ahead of their actual arrival. The app protects cyclists and other vulnerable road users by alerting them of speeding vehicles.
