'A misleading article in WSAZ3 News titled, “New app targets distracted drivers with traffic alerts” would lead you to believe that the makers of the app are actually concerned with everyone’s safety, but of course that is not the case.
Have you ever wanted an app that lets Big Brother know when you are speeding and where you are going in real-time?
If you have, then your wait is over.
A new app called TravelSafely, sends warning signs to your smartphone for everything from your speed in a school zone to a light that’s about to change.
While we often look to the government to solve public safety issues, we decided that part of the solution lies with the transportation private sector working with the public to create real changes in how we manage travel safety. Marietta, Downtown Atlanta and Tuscaloosa are the first smart cities to deploy the TravelSafely App.
TravelSafely, has decided to help Big Brother out by solving public safety issues, like letting everyone know where you are and how fast you are traveling in real-time.
The app connects you with smart cities, other motorists, pedestrians and cyclists so that you can get where you’re going quicker and stay safe.
