Legal Advice

“I wonder if she got home safely.”

“I wonder if I’ve waited long enough to drive after that drink.”

“I wonder what I should do now that I’ve been in a car accident.”

Have you ever found yourself pondering these situations? If so, there’s an app for that. We’ve created this list of nine apps to help you and your loved ones prevent emergencies and stay safe, even if you are walking to your car. Check them out and see if you feel any are right for you!

Apps to Encourage Safe Driving


Zenroad is an app that tracks the location and driving information. This data is processed through the Zenroad platform and SDK and generates telematics risk scores, features insights into driver behaviors, driving style, routes, and monitors car crashes. This app can access speed and acceleration data in real-time while the vehicle is in motion.

Drunk Driving Prevention Apps

ENDUI This app, available for free on iOS and Android, was developed by the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA). Its main feature is a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) estimator, where the number and type of drinks a person has consumed are entered into the app, and an estimated BAC level is provided. It also offers two skills tests to measure reaction time and response function. It includes several other features, such as the ability to create a list of possible designated drivers who can be contacted quickly should you need them. It will also locate the nearest taxi service or public transportation options. It also provides the ability to report an impaired driver by contacting 911 with the push of a button. Available for free from Apple and Android.

BreathometerBreathometer makes a wireless smartphone breathalyzer attachment to get a more precise idea of your blood alcohol content. Though the attachment costs $79.99 currently, it helps prevent users from wondering if they are over the legal blood alcohol content limit. Available for Apple and Android.

Curb – Curb connects you to professional, fully-insured taxi and for-hire drivers in 60 cities nationwide. With 35,000 vehicles on the network, a driver is always nearby. Available for free from Apple and Android.

Car Accident Apps

Consumer Reports Magazine reviewed two apps that could help you if you are ever in a car accident: Help I Crashed My Car (for Android and iPhone) and Car Accident Report (for iPhone). Both apps allow you to pre-load emergency contact info, personal data, and vehicle information, including make, model, and insurance information, so it is ready when needed. Both will allow you to contact 911 quickly and track your location using GPS. They also include complete checklists of what to do and in what order after a crash. Additionally, they feature an accident report screen you can fill out with details about other vehicles and drivers. Here are some defining features of each app.

Car Accident Report – This app integrates with email to let you send photos of the accident scene, plus notes, diagrams, and recorded audio interviews. Available for free from Apple only.

Help I Crashed My Car – Like Car Accident Report, this app allows you to take pictures of the accident scene using your phone’s camera. It also includes links to local rental car companies and auto body shops. Available for free from Apple and Android.
