To demonstrate our
commitment to New York's cycling
community, we have released what we believe to be New York's first Bike Crash
App. The application is available for
FREE in theAndroid market Place I-Tunes store, so down load it now. The application
will assist a cyclists in gathering all necessary and critical data after
a crash, including the driver and vehicle owners name, insurance information,
witness information, responding police officer name, report number and
precinct. It will also geo-tag the accident location, assist in taking
photos of the accident scene and vehicles, record witness statements,
and offer a sketch pad to draw or diagram vehicle and cycle movement before
and after the crash. If the accident
involves a vehicle blocking a bike lane, or as a result of a street defect such
as a pothole, defective manhole cover or grating, by photo or sketch,
this can be documented as well.
It is also our goal to allow this application to be used by advocacy groups
to collect crash data in a organized format, that can be easily e-mailed
to crash stat, the NYPD, 311 or other organizations now collecting data
on bike and cycle crashes. All of this is developed to further our goal
to help promote bike safety as well as education on the rights and laws
afforded to protect New York's Cyclists. The application is in its
final stages of development and is expected to be released in time for
Bike Month, May, 2012.
The App is also available in the Android Market Place.
