The aim of this article is not to scare you, or put you off cycling. In fact, we are big advocates of commuting by bike. After all it is a useful mode of transport, it makes you feel good, gives you a sense of freedom and is good for the environment to boot. Unfortunately crashes can happen from time to time. And in the unlikely event that it does happen to you, it is far better to be prepared.

CTC crash app

CTC, the UK’s largest cycling charity has launched an app that can take the thinking out of the situation should you be involved in an incident on the road.

Basically the app enables you to capture all of the essential information you will need after the incident. This information can then be sent directly to a solicitor should you wish to take further action. The details include:

  • Incident Location
  • Date and Time
  • Injury Details
  • Third Party Information
  • Witness Details
  • Weather Conditions
  • Images (With Annotation)

You can download the crash app from iTunes
