The app teaches drivers what to do when faced with vehicles that need to be given the right of way. Most drivers don’t understand how to cope when confronted with flashing lights and sirens in traffic.
“Flashing lights and sirens, what do you do?” uses short videos to simulate several traffic scenarios with emergency vehicles. After each video, the user is given multiple options of handling the traffic scenarios, and is asked to make a choice. Only one of the options is correct, though. The situations and the correct answers are explained with short videos as well.
The launch of the app, which is happening today, March 5, will be accompanied with a large press conference. The goal of the app is to reduce the amount of collisions with emergency vehicles.
