Seattle’s Safest Driver makes it fun and rewarding to be a better driver.
Now’s your chance to show off your safe driving skills and compete for prizes! The Seattle’s Safest Driver Competition allows participants to challenge their friends, see how they rank in their community, and win prizes every other week. The competition is brought to you by the City of Seattle, and PEMCO Insurance, and Cambridge Mobile Telematics. The effort is part of Seattle’s Vision Zero initiative to end traffic deaths and serious injuries on city streets by 2030. Better behavior behind the wheel is key to achieving this aggressive goal. For more information, please visit www.seattle.gov/safestdriver.
Seattle’s Safest Driver automatically detects when driving starts and stops, and uses your phone’s sensors to measure driving quality, including acceleration, braking, cornering, speeding, and phone distraction. The application logs your driving trips, displays mapped routes of your drives, and displays details on maneuvers giving you useful feedback to help you become a better driver. In addition, it provides driving tips and allows you to invite friends to your leaderboard to compete for top rankings. The app also tracks transit and bike trips.
The competition is for legal residents (who are at least 17 years of age or older) of King, Pierce, Kitsap, and Snohomish counties. To verify eligibility, you will need to enter your participating zip code on the registration page. Please note, the City of Seattle is subject to the Washington Public Records Act, Chapter 42.56 RCW. By participating in Seattle’s Safest Driver, you acknowledge that any records you submit may be subject to disclosure pursuant to the Public Records Act.
