PedSafe is the App YOU Need for Summer Travel!

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received info on this app free of charge,from Pedsafe, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it

And speaking of walking....

Do you ever walk at night? With your family?

Planning a vacation that will require you to be walking at night?

A simple solution is literally at hand!

pedsafe app

PedSafe app is a new app, for cell phone or tablet use) that is totally FREE,  that lets pedestrians easy to seem when they are crossing or walking near streets and roadways. By using it, drivers' are more aware of walking subjects, and less likely to strike them. 

The app was designed by a Former Fire Chief and a Former Public Works Supervisor, who experienced first hand the results of drivers treating people on foot as if they were not there."About every eight minutes, a person gets hit by a car in the US,” said Dan Voreyer, former Fire Chief for the City of San Bruno, CA, and PedSafe co-founder. "We knew we could help,” said Larr Smurthwaite, former Public Works Supervisor for the City of San Bruno, CA, and PedSafe co-founder. "Maybe not save everybody, but certainly provide a way to make pedestrians more visible. "We took the idea behind crosswalk safety lights and put into everyone's hands, in a smartphone app." says Dan.

Check out how well it works:

Using the symbol for a pedestrian crossing, PedSafe app generates an amber ">random strobe pattern that allows the user to be seen from up to 3-5 city blocks away (1000 feet/300 meters) at night. It also prevents distracted walking, as the user cannot text when PedSafe is activated. Which means it saves you on multiple fronts!

The PedSafe app downloads super quickly and is easy to turn on/off, with one touch of the screen. No matter what language you speak, the app is self explanatory and easy to use- which also means kids can use it as well as seniors! And you can use it world wide, so it can always go wherever your cell phone goes, and it's a lot safer and easier to carry than a bulky flashlight!
PedSafe is available for FREE downloading for iOS andAndroid phones. We love it and highly recommend it for everyone to have, as a valuable safety item!
