CHP Incidents

App Store Badge EN 0609

Have you ever wondered not only where traffic incidents are on the freeways, but also what's happening with them -- for example, what time the ambulance got there, if the car that broke down has a tow truck on the way, and so on? 

Now there's an app for that: The California Highway Patrol (CHP) meticulously logs every incident that is reported on freeways in California, and even some that aren't on freeways (maybe close to a freeway, but not necessarily on one). Anyone can retrieve that information.

Major Features: 

  • View the incidents on a map
  • Glossary, so you can decipher what the CHP shorthand actually means.
  • A "Report" button (iPhone and iPod touch only) that not only gives you a button to call 911 in order to report incidents and traffic hazards, but also tells you roughly where you were when you pressed "Report".

This app requires iOS 7.0 or later, and is free for a limited time (after which the price will go up to 99 cents) from the App Store.
