YOU TURN (U-Turn)

You Turn is an interactive application that provides comprehensive information and statistics to road users and all stakeholders in the transport industry to enable them make decisions that enhance road safety and save lives. The application maps out black spots and road crashes as they occur, using information sourced from the police and the public in real time. To reduce risk to the lives of motorists and other road users, subscribers receive alerts as they approach black spots and crash scenes through mobile phones. These updates are either official (put up by police officers who arrive at the scene first) or non-official (crowd sourced from members of the public).

The World Bank is interested to further support the pilot project and it is expected that by mid 2013 it will be ready to be scaled.
