More than 6 million car crashes take place on U.S. roads every year. An estimated 1.5 million people get injured. And more than 35,000 people die. Imagine, if every single one of us could make a difference? Now you can. Road Hero is a free and simple way for anyone to help make our roads safer. Report dangerous drivers or reward good ones and become one of our Road Heroes contributing to our movement for safer roads.
When you want to report a driver, simply launch the app and SAY the license plate number. We call this “flagging” another driver.
- Flag dangerous drivers anonymously – report violations and leave voice feedback
- Submit photos of funny or terrible parking (we will post the best photos)
- Leave messages with good drivers
- Search any license plate and check their (or your) driver record
- Get notified if someone leaves you a good message
- Monitor your friends and family vehicles and get notified if they are flagged
- Hear the funniest rants about bad drivers.
Road Hero is simple, yet powerful:
- Voice-powered flagging for a safe driving experience
- Location-enabled so you can track every flag on a map
- Your activity is always anonymous
Check out our web site, RoadHero.org, which shows thousands of flags on a map and allows you to listen, rate and share messages. You can also search any license plate.
