Want to be a better Boston driver? Now, there’s an app for that [CBS Boston]
CAMBRIDGE (CBS) – A few weeks ago a survey ranked Boston-area drivers the worst in the country.
A Cambridge company has created a phone app that may offer hope for those who want to reform their ways on the road.
The apps creators say it could change the way people behave behind the wheel by tracking driving habits for better or for worse.
Hari Balakrishnan, co-founder of Cambridge Mobile Telematics, explained that the app turns on when you get in the car. It keeps track of speed, braking, rough turns and even when a driver picks up the phone to call or text.
Depending on how they behave on the road, the app gives drivers green stars for good moves and red stars for bad ones. It also offers driving tips.
