Invaluable app with lots of potential
I’ve stress-tested many similar apps - they were either buggy, glitching or triggering false alarms and panicking my family, Open Road has proven to be a real game changer...if only I’d found this app sooner.
Roughly six years ago, my partner and I were headed home after a long night working at a bar when we’d suddenly been involved in a near-fatal head-on collision with a wrong way drunk driver at speeds of ~70 MPH where I’d sustained multiple serious injuries and lost consciousness from my head striking the B-Pillar (where the seatbelt is located).
My partner managed to walk away, but when I awakened, Both my legs were pinned which resulted in a mechanical extrication before being rushed to a level-1 trauma unit. I couldn’t reach my phone to dial 9-1-1, had I been alone in the car, things would have been different.
Willing to try it
Just d/l the app. Willing to try it. Only had been in 1 accident in Costa Rica when a gentleman rear-ended me but if this works the way it’s saying, then awesome. I’ll see if I can get my dad to d/l it too. But my one question is, will it know the difference btwn a car crash and if I took a crash while downhill mtn biking? I go downhilling in the summer and I do crash sometimes. Can’t always get to my phone in time but I want to make sure what will happen if I crash while bicycling downhill.

Thanks for downloading Openroad!
Sorry to hear about the Costa Rica accident and here’s hoping you don’t have any more.
Great question regarding mountain biking. The app has been built to detect real car crashes and not to falsely alert on non-car-crashes. Our crash algorithms have been built by our great team of data scientists and validated on thousands and thousands of real car crash events - to do just this.
That said, a strong bike crash could look to us like a car crash. In the event this happens: we would first make an automated call to see if you need help - if you don't need help you can just tell us that and we'll leave you alone. If we don't hear from you, a live crash agent will call you twice and only then, if they can't reach you, would transfer the call to local emergency services to evaluate and send help if needed.
If you have any other questions shoot us a note to email@example.com. And if you're interested, drop me an email there and I'll send you out an Openroad tshirt.

Are used to have a car with On Star and felt very safe in the mountains. I sold my little sports car and I now have an older Chevy Suburban which suits my needs. The only bad thing was I miss the On Star Security. With open road I have that Security back. I’ve not had to use it thankfully, but I feel safe knowing someone will be notified if Something happens.
Thank you Openroad!
