Cool iPhone App Can Help Bicyclists After A Crash
Along with your helmet, headlight and flat tire kit, your smart phone should be with you when out biking. Not only can you use it to call for help if something goes horribly wrong, you can use it to create a detailed record should you be involved in an accident. I've written about what to do after a bicycle accident. But following a wreck, remembering the right steps to take when you are in pain, your adrenalin is flowing and your thoughts are racing isn't easy even for the most level headed rider. I recently came across an iPhone app, iWrecked, that could be an invaluable tool in helping the cyclist make a proper record of an accident. I've had a chance to play with it a bit. With a simple click the application opens a simple form to be filled in with pertinent information about the incident. It will dial 911 for you, call you a taxi and even help you find a local police station. Learn more about this app by clicking here.
