After seeing a pattern of cyclists unaware of what information to obtain after a crash we realized there was a need for a simple and complete method to gather post-crash data. In 2012, we developed New York's first Bike Crash App. The App is available for all i-Phone and Android Devices. Our free App (the first of its kind) has been downloaded and used by cyclists around the world. Riders find our App to be a useful tool to have, both before and after a crash. Press and reviews about our app have been found in Australia, the Philippines, Antwerp, Canada, London and Denmark. To date, the app has been downloaded over 1,200 times!
