Ratings and Reviews
9/9/23. Google maps showed the accident around 3p but this application did not. It kept zooming back to auto dim settings and did not show any detail when I zoomed into the highway. Did not show traffic congestion did not show the accident an alert or delays like the old app. Whoever wrote this app, obviously does not have a car and never leaves the house. The colors of traffic congestion were extremely in accurate, and the lack of any information on why we were sitting in a parking lot on northbound I 15 we’re left to chance When we came upon the accident site with the emergency vehicles, the application showed nothing despite having all the settings turned on. Came across the accident site with multiple emergency vehicles, I destroyed car, tow truck, people on the interstate, and debris, and no mention of any of it on the app. I am going to stick to Google maps.
The app is usually pretty helpful but for the last couple weeks it has been freezing just about every time I open it. There are also so many cameras that are out and the same ones have been out for years. I hope UDOT prioritizes fixing the issues because the app has the potential to be extremely helpful to assess the safety of my work commute in winter.
“App in need of a complete facelift”
This app is outdated and is in need of a transformation. With more drivers and an increase in accidents statewide, having a reliable, consistent, updated information system including cameras is paramount. (App and mobile website collectively). I would argue that some accidents may potentially be avoided with an accurate UDOT system in place; helping to promote more informed citizens who can better plan ahead and make strategic travel plans. Including, forgoing travel. Likewise, it would encourage and positively reinforce more carpooling and “wise” travel. I am sure that is why this app was created in the first place. Please, prioritize and update the system. *Publicly promoting and educating on the updated app/website would be wise too, once you get it up to par. —>In the meantime, this app is of no use or value and the same goes for the online website. The ease of use and use on a mobile device is mutually exclusive.
