Apple Maps Now Support HAAS Alert’s Safety Cloud Digital Alerts
HAAS Alert has today announced that its Safety Cloud digital alerting platform for roadway safety is now incorporated into real-time roadway hazard information in Apple Maps.
Drivers approaching emergency vehicles, incident responders, work zones, and other hazards on the road sourced by Safety Cloud will receive an alert in Apple Maps, giving them advance warning of a potential safety issue ahead.
Studies have found that digital alerts providing advance warning of upcoming roadway hazards improve driver safety near roadside incidents and can reduce the risk of crashes by up to 90%.
Over 1,200 public safety agencies, roadside assistance fleets, towing operators, road workers, and other organizations with vehicles or roadway equipment are already using Safety Cloud.
“With the addition of Apple Maps as a Safety Cloud digital alerting partner, drivers using an iPhone as a travel companion will now be safer and better aware of upcoming roadway conditions. We applaud Apple for prioritizing driver safety and taking steps towards achieving the Vision Zero goal of eliminating all traffic fatalities and severe injuries,” said HAAS Alert’s SVP Jeremy Agulnek.
More than 1 billion digital alerts have been processed through Safety Cloud since the platform’s launch in 2017.
