We have re-released New York's first Bike Crash App in the Google Plus/Android
Market Place. The new release contains updates compatible with current
phones as well as a spanish language conversion.
THE BIKE CRASH KIT is available for
FREE in the
Android Marketplace and iTunes App Store, so download it now! The application assists cyclists
in gathering all necessary data after a crash. This includes the driver
and vehicle owner's name,
insurance information , witness information, responding police officer's 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 diagram vehicle
and cycle movement before and after the crash. If the accident involves
a vehicle blocking a bike lane, or occurs as a result of a street defect
such as a pothole, defective manhole cover, or grating, this defect can
be documented by photo or sketch.
It is also our goal to allow this application to be used by advocacy groups
to collect crash data in an organized format that can be easily e-mailed
to crash stat, the NYPD, 311, or other organizations collecting data on
bike and cycle crashes. This app furthers our goal to help promote bike
safety and education on the rights and laws afforded to protect New York's
cyclists. The application is now available on both the Android and Apple
