Drive with Safety is a family-oriented driving app that gives you a complete picture of your family's driving safety. The app tells you where your family members are and how they got there, with details on exactly how they drove including phone use, texting, aggressive driving, speeding and more.
With the app, you can:
• See where your teen driver is
• See how they got there
• See if they are driving responsibly (and if they are texting or using the phone while driving)
• And, see how your teen ranks compared to the rest of your Family
The app engages the whole family to become safe and responsible drivers by tracking behaviors, scoring and ranking each driver and sharing the results to the whole family. In addition to showing driving behavior, Drive with Safety also shares family members’ locations so you can see where everyone in your family is, how safe was their ride, and their trip history.
If you don’t want to share the details of your location with the group, you can easily turn off your location details in settings to keep your location private.
Car trips are graded using a simple 100 point scale (where 100 is the best score). Teen drivers and their families can use their driving score to gain insights into responsible driving, identify risky behavior, and monitor improvement over time. Other driving behaviors indicative of risk like Aggressive Driving and High Speeds are called out within the app and factored into your score.
With a quick glance, you can see where your family is, how they are driving and how their driving compares to yours. Zoom in on individual family members with a tap to see scoring details and their trip history. Start a conversation with your teen driver about how to stay safer on the roads by seeing what habits may be putting them at risk.
Drive with Safety helps everyone stay on track and make safe decisions when they are behind the wheel.
Removed driver screening questions. App now relies on data it collects during trips instead of looking at the answers to those questions to determine driver designation.
Ratings and Reviews
Dings me for distracted driving when not driving
It seems to mostly work except for one key issue. I don’t know how the app determines when you’ve stopped driving but I’ve now been dinged for distracted driving multiple times when I park and use my phone in my car, say while waiting for someone I’m picking up. I had one instance where I was parked at an auto body shop waiting to pick up a coworker and it counted the entire time I was parked (long enough to turn off the car) as part of the drive from home to auto body shop and then to the office. It didn’t think the long pause in a parking lot was me being parked. I imagine if you were to pull over and make a call or send a text, it would count that as distracted driving too. That’s not cool.
Not only does it think my wife and I drive at the same time, it rates the two of us VERY differently for speeding (while we’re in the same car at the same time). And, once while driving, a call came to my phone. I did NOTHING except to decline the call. For that, I was dinged for inattentive driving. I am removing this garbage from our phones.

This app is intended to monitor and rate your driving. Obviously it should know if you are driving, and where you are. It often fails. Example 1 - we did a drive about 120 miles. I was behind the wheel, nonstop and the app rated me for that. But the app also rated my wife for simultaneously driving about half of that same drive. Example 2 - we did some short local drives at that place 120 miles away. The app properly rated me for doing the driving, which I did. But it also rated my wife for doing one of those drives at the same time I was doing the drive. Example 3 - we visited family about 100 miles away for three days. They took us out to dinner and we were in their car as passengers. The app rated my wife as if she had done that drive in which she was a passenger. Example 4 - we came home after that family visit. My wife went for a local drive and the app properly rated her for that drive. But the day after that the app said it hadn't known where she had been for days and believed she was still at our relative's house 100 miles away, even though it had monitored her on a local drive a day later. Further, looking at the apps rating of my drives in which I'd been extra careful about speeds, it's obvious that in some locations the app's speed limit database is faulty. And the app causes a very noticeable decrease in battery life.
Always thinks I’m driving
This app is a massive pain. It’s constantly asking if I’m driving, when I’m not even in the car. It makes no concessions for putting the car in park to pay at a drive through and just believes I’m a jerk in general.
