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.

The application uses low-power sensing methods to reduce battery consumption.

Ratings and Reviews
I like the idea but...
I cannot seem to figure out how to disable it when I'm not the one driving. My roommate drives 50% of the time and he's brand new to driving, so it penalizes me for playing music whilst he's driving and all that. Also I'm curious how this does on your battery life. I would recommend having the option to turn on the trip checker thing manually rather than automatically so I can choose not to turn it on when I'm not driving.
Great way to improve my driving
Also like that it does not drain my battery much like other driving apps I have tried.
Fun to work on your own ranking!
It’s also a great way to track your commute, and see how much time you spend on the road
