Sadly, reckless driving is a common occurrence caused by drivers who are in a hurry, under the influence of alcohol or drugs or simply do not care about keeping the roads safe.
It can be frustrating and scary to drive near a reckless driver. Fortunately, there are several apps that can give you the opportunity to report drivers who are texting, speeding, making abrupt lane changes, and engaging in other dangerous acts. If you come across a reckless driver, be sure to report them on one of these apps so that you can reduce the risk of a car accident.
Drive Me Crazy
Drive Me Crazy can give you the chance to report bad drivers to the DMV and insurance companies. All you need to do is verbally record the reckless driver’s license plate number and their offense. This app works in reverse as well and allows you to report safe drivers who are adhering to all laws.
Philip Inghelbrecht, the founder of the app is hopeful that it will reduce the number of reckless drivers on the road. To date, this app has recorded more than 20,000 tickets from frustrated drivers around the country.
Nexar turns your phone into a dashcam. It can automatically detect road dangers and provide you with real-time alerts that could potentially save your life. To use Nexar, simply place your phone in a car mount with a clear view of the road ahead and begin driving.
With this app, you can generate free collision reports which can serve as valuable evidence that can be shared with an insurance company. If you download Nexar, you can expect all of your dangerous events to be stored in a private Nexar cloud which you can access on any device.
Bad Driver Database
Bad Driver Database is similar to Drive Me Crazy and was designed to help drivers vent about bad drivers. If you notice a bad driver, take a picture of their license plate so that it can be added to a growing online database. To find out if a certain driver was reported in the past, you can search the database.
