Use This App To Pinpoint Dangerous Drivers

The open road is full of jerks and road rages, and a new app is taking them on. Nexar asks you to mount your phone to your dashboard, and it will monitor surrounding traffic.  If someone starts driving dangerously, it will ask if you want to record what’s going on with a 30-second video.  The goal is to capture license plates of bad or hostile drivers.  This is useful if you witness a crash or a criminal offense.  According to, Nexar also uploads data to a central database.  It will let you know if someone with a bad driving history enters the camera’s field of vision, helping you spot potential bad drivers.  In the future, Nexar plans to use GPS to identify dangerous cars to the side and behind them, too.  Safety Resource Center - December 1, 2016
