From minimising distraction from cellphones to dispatching quick response teams, here are 5 apps and services that make taking the wheel a little safer.
Kruzr minimizes distraction by handling phone calls through a ‘smart chatbot'. The app first declines the call and initiate a chat with the caller to inquire if the call is important. If it is, then the person is asked to call again and the app forwards it.
In an emergency situation, Safely Home automatically alerts the police, ambulance and the user's emergency contacts. By leveraging location tracking, the app can monitor speed and movement to detect road crashes.
Party Hard Drivers: Specifically geared to make sure that you don't take to the wheel after a night of drinking, the service promises to provide reliable chauffeurs, at a reasonable price, to drive you and your car home.

Only functional in Rajasthan, the HumSafar Road Safety app aggregates the details of hospitals, police stations, ambulance services and other emergency services and sends out precise map locations.
