With accidents in Mauritius being on the rise, road safety has become an increasing concern. With Drive Safe, you are able to look at the various hazards and warnings happening all over the island in real time. Keep in mind that to use Drive Safe you need a GPS signal and an Internet connection, so that means cell phone data if you’re out on the road.
How to Use
Drive Safe has multiple features that are quite easy to use. In the Dashboard, through GPS positioning, the app will track your progress and derive your speed from it. As you travel, any warnings or notifications in your vicinity will show up on the map, allowing you to make decisions on where to go based on where the warnings are. You’d might want to have your phone connected to a charger to keep it from draining your battery while the dashboard is active as it drains a lot of power.
If you wish to have a more global view of the roadblocks surrounding you, the Map is the better place to look. Sometimes the Mauritius Police Force will post news of the more important incidents happening in the News section.
Finally, you will find a list of hotlines in the Emergency section, with numbers that you can call, from ambulances and clinics to police stations.
If you wish to send feedback to the developer, you can do so in the aptly named Feedback section.

Not only will you be able to see where the hazards are, you will also have access to news posted directly by the Mauritius Police Force. Everything about this app is to keep you from hitting roadblocks.
