One second you hear a “DING!”, and the next second you’re swerving to narrowly avoid a rear-end collision. Even though we know better, this is far too common of a situation for most of us, and the resulting dings and damages can be expensive.
Around 20% of reported motor vehicle crashes are due to distracted driving, causing over 3,000 deaths per year. Companies in the US spend around $10 Billion each year in costs related to the damages, injuries, and litigation of distracted driving crashes. Texting and driving is especially problematic because of the development and repetition of bad phone habits behind the wheel.
MOTOVATE™ is an app-supported incentive program, designed to increase awareness, improve driver behavior, and form new, healthy habits while driving. It rewires the bad habit of checking your phone, and replaces it with the good habit of paying attention to road (and getting rewarded for it!). It can also be set up to improve some basic driving behaviors like hard-braking and speeding.
When you drive with MOTOVATE, your phone’s notifications take a break, removing the major temptation of the “DING!”. The app then counts all the safe miles driven and allows you to cash them in for real rewards. In addition to the incentive or rewards, creating teams with family, friends at school, or in the office offers motivation in the form of accountability and a healthy dose of competition.

Ratings and Reviews
Motovate app review assign.
Very use to app, personally enjoyed the distractions prevented and DND mode. Rewards for doing something simple as driving. Few bugs on the app to fix. Majority few issues , but in general app still holds pretty well to its standards. Changes to the app would be just a few minor tweaks. Bug fixes. More variety options would be nice also. 4 stars out of 5
Makes driving safe easy & fun!
It certainly changes behavior for the better keeping you off your phone while driving. The gamification is rewarding and fun. More than just the step counter of safe driving !!!
Love Driving wellness with rewards!
This app turns driving properly into a game that you can do with friends and a team. The app itself is very clean and easy to use but the message is one that everyone should heed! Great app!
