NHTSA Creates Vehicle Recall, Safety App

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has launched an application for Apple devices, including the iPhone, that provides consumers with real-time vehicle safety information from the agency’s website. The SaferCar app allows users to file a vehicle safety complaint, find recall information and subscribe to automatic notices about vehicle recalls.

Development is underway on a version compatible with Android devices.

NHTSA also plans to give developers real-time access to the data that powers its app through an application programming interface (API). This allows developers to integrate the data into new and existing apps.
