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 collision 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.
