A new app allows volunteer Israeli drivers to report driving violations to the Israel Police Traffic Department. Drivers who take part in this “Guardians of the Road—Social Change on the Roads” initiative attach a phone to their dashboard to capture images and provide commentary to the incidents they might encounter. Though the app films the roads constantly, users need only prompt the app with their voices to send footage to the authorities. The app was developed by the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology as a joint venture between the National Road Safety Authority, Israel Police Traffic Department and the NGO Nativ Batuach.
