The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released an application to help drivers make informed safety decisions about their automobiles. The SaferCar app has a variety of features that offer important automobile-safety information right to a driver’s smartphone including safety rating information, recalls and safety alerts. Unfortunately, defective car parts have been known to lead to devastating crashes. Since it isn’t always easy to stay up-to-date with vehicle updates and recalls, this app is a great tool for drivers to stay on top of necessary safety updates.
SaferCar App Features
• Safety Rating Information
• Safety Complaints
• Child Seat Safety
• Safety Alerts
Crash Test Ratings
This free iPhone application works on a variety of different devices. The app allows users to quickly look up a car’s crash test ratings. Car shoppers will be happy to hear that they can even compare the safety ratings for a number of different vehicles. Additionally, the app also has a feature that can alert users about safety issues and recalls for their particular vehicle.
Complaints and Vehicle Safety
This app also allows drivers to report complaints and safety related-problems directly to the NHTSA. If you believe your car has some kind of defect or safety issue, you can report it quickly and easily. This data can help officials and researchers with the NHTSA stay on top of potential defects and safety-related issues for different makes and models of cars. Drivers can download the app through iTunes. Additionally, the app also offers driving directions to locations where parents can get assistance installing and properly fitting child safety seats. The SaferCar app also offers important news bulletins about safety information directly from the NHTSA.
Staying up-to-date with vehicle recalls is an important part of keeping roadways safe. A defective car part can put lives in danger. Hopefully, SaferCar can help raise awareness about the importance of updating recalled parts. The app will also help the NHTSA track trends on potentially defective parts that haven’t been identified yet.
