Ever-Drive app offers $50,000 for nation's best driver

AUSTIN (KXAN) — If you don’t mind backseat drivers this new app may be perfect for you.

The free app, Ever-Drive, alerts drivers when they are doing something wrong on the road. While the app can’t monitor everything you do, it does pick up on your bad habits. At the end of a drive the app will give drivers a analytical diagnostic of their journey.

“The phone measures when you’re driving how fast you accelerate… How harsh you brake… Whether you’re speeding and also measures your phone use,” said Ever-Driver, Andres Ressler. “So if you pick up the phone while you’re driving you’ll see if reflected in your score and whats cool about it is it will show you on a map every place where you did something it thinks is not good for your driving.”

You can even compare your scores with friends to see who is the better driver. There is also $50,000 up for grabs in cash and prizes for the drivers with the best scores! Additionally, good drivers might qualify for auto insurance discounts.
