A car accountability app is the easy way to be a good Samaritan

Have you ever wanted a way to connect with your fellow drivers on the road? Say you’ve witnessed a hit and run accident with a parked car and caught the perpetrator's license. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to let the owner of the hit car know? Now there's a way to hold drivers accountable and inform others about their vehicles.

You pass a car with its lights on in the parking lot. Oh well, I guess they’ll find out later, you think. All the other people who pass this car think the same thing. But what if there was a way to connect with the driver? So that they don’t return to the parking lot after a long day and find a dead car battery? Buzz car accountability app can help. It’s the only app that enables you to connect with other drivers.

According to AAA, the average American spends 17,600 minutes driving each year. That’s a lot of time spent surrounded by other people you’ll never meet. With Buzz, however, you can connect with and inform the people you share the road with every day.

It takes seconds to set up

We all hate setup processes that are complicated and ask a million questions. Buzz, though, is easy to activate. All you have to do is enter your license plate, and you’re ready. Once you’re on the system, you can search for other drivers using their license plate, inform them about their car, and connect with people who have common interests.

This application lets you hold other drivers accountable

The Buzz car accountability app helps you protect your car by letting you track down drivers who have damaged it.

It’s happened to all of us. You come out of the post office to find a massive scratch on the side of your car. And, of course, the guilty driver didn’t leave a note. Luckily for you, a witness saw everything and messaged you with the license plate number on Buzz. Now you can contact the police and insurance company with the driver’s information, saving you from repair charges and a premium increase.

Furthermore, if you catch a driver using their phone at the wheel, you could politely remind that person (once you’re stopped in traffic or parked of course) to stop.

Buzz lets you inform other drivers

Or, say you can see that the car in front of you has a burned-out taillight. In the past, you wouldn’t have been able to let that other person know. But with Buzz, you could simply message that driver to inform her about her car’s problem, which could potentially prevent an accident. Now you’re the good Samaritan.

Also, say you see a parked car with its window open. You know it’s about to rain. With this car accountability app, you can easily find the car’s owner and tell them that the window is open. This would potentially save the leather interior from damage. Or what if you saw a renegade self-driving car? You could report it. It feels good to help.

Buzz lets you connect with other drivers

Another great thing about this car accountability app is that it helps you connect with other drivers. Americans spend a large portion of their day behind the wheel. And it wouldn’t be surprising if you passed some of the same people every day. You never get to meet them. Buzz can help you get in touch. Do you see someone driving your dream car every day and want to reach out? Or what about that classic 1960s car? You could message the driver and learn how they got into car restoration.

With Buzz, you can instantly connect with other users on the app through direct messages. You just have to type in their license plate. Also, you’ll be able to see their connected Facebook and Instagram profiles, which can help you know if you have similar interests. Can your car help you make new friends? It’s possible.

What we love about Buzz

We love this driver accountability app because it helps drivers help other drivers. We’ve all been in a situation where we would have liked to have helped another driver out. But, because we didn’t have a pen and paper, were driving, or couldn’t wait around, we ended up just going about our day. Buzz helps you be a better car neighbor.

What we would love to see

This car accountability app’s creators say that all of your information is secure and won’t leave the app. So Buzz has privacy precautions in mind. However, we wonder if they’ve created a way to report users who send harassing messages? We all know you can run into a person with ill intent from time to time. A way to report users would increase this app’s security. Another feature we’d like to see is a feature that prevents people from using the app while driving.

How to get Buzz

According to the company, Buzz will be available for free on Google Play and in the App Store starting in August 2020. And you can take advantage of the free, 30-day trial period. If you’d like to skip the wait and purchase the premium pack, it’s just $2.99 per month. There will even be deals for yearly subscriptions. You can also find this app on Kickstarter.
