Cambridge Mobile Telematics (CMT) has announced the public release of its Safest Driver platform.
The public release of the Safest Driver platform means that any organization that wants to promote safe driving can host Safest Driver contests, not just municipalities, as it was previously.
Uber and Progressive Insurance are sponsoring the first contest using the Safest Driver platform. CMT’s three-month Safest Driver contest for Uber drivers in Austin, Charlotte, and Raleigh-Durham will coincide with the public launch of the Safest Driver platform, according to the company.
Prior prize-based contests hosted in other cities have showed that drivers who participated reduced their risky driving behaviors like phone distraction, speeding, and hard braking by up to 57%, the company added.
Major municipalities that have worked with CMT in the past to host contests have also seen safer driving on their streets; crash reductions; and have been able to identify dangerous intersections ready for safety infrastructure improvements.
