We’ve all been victims of aggressive or distracted drivers. It can be infuriating and make you want to yell or honk at them. But, what if you could call out the reckless driver on social media instead? Companies are now developing apps that allow you to report aggressive drivers while maintaining your anonymity. These apps are helpful since they give you the chance to call attention to a bad driver without getting into a potentially dangerous situation.

If you or a loved one has suffered due to a reckless driver, do not hesitate to contact Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. Our car accident attorneys have years of experience helping those who have been harmed because of someone else. Contact us today at (312) 236-2900 to schedule a free initial consultation.

Apps for Bad Drivers

Below are some apps that have been created as a way to call people out on their reckless driving.

  • Drive Me Crazy – Drive Me Crazy, an app created by Shazam co-founder Philip Inghelbrecht, lets people air their grievances without getting into a dangerous road rage situation. The app lets you verbally record a license plate number, for which you can later write a “ticket” relaying the driver’s poor road skills. Inghelbrecht hopes it will curb poor driving habits. He wants the app to operate like the signs on semi-trucks that say, “How’s My Driving?”
  • Fail Driver – Like Drive Me Crazy, the Fail Driver app allows you to complain about what other drivers are doing. You can login to report irritations such as the guy who didn’t give you “the wave” after you let him in or the teenager who flew past you on the residential road with their eyes glued to their cell phone.
  • Nexar – This app uses your phone as a dashcam and gives you the ability to record bad driving. In fact, Nexar can detect dangerous actions such as swerving or sudden braking and send a pop-up message asking if you’d like to begin recording. That way, you can capture the driver’s license plate number and save it or share it with others. Nexar hopes to use GPS to add preventative features to its app soon. The idea is to have GPS locate and report areas where dangerous drivers are more prevalent.
