Amazon pick for better road safety: alerts on road hazards and speed cameras

CO-DRIVER
Road collisions in Great Britain are estimated to have killed or seriously injured nearly 30,000 according to the latest figures.

Now a new device has hit the UK market, which aims to improve driver focus and safety by alerting them to upcoming hazards on the roads and helping to keep them within the speed limit.

It’s called the CO-DRIVER and has already sold more than 2million across Europe – making it a category leader on Amazon and an Amazon choice.  And to mark its launch, Edinburgh News readers have the chance to win one of 10 devices worth £69.99 each.

According to national statistics from the UK Government, in the year ending June 2023 there were an estimated 1,633 fatalities across Great Britain and a total of 29,429 people died or were seriously injured. There were 133,443 casualties of all severities.

Unobtrusive design and screen free device

But fitting this neat device in your car could be the key to safer driving, giving you the heads-up on potential hazards ahead and helping you stay in safe control.

Designed by a Danish teach company, established in 2017, The OOONO CO-DRIVER NO1 and NO2 are two different specs of the same flagship product – but both are designed with road safety in mind, with clear audio and visual signals alerting drivers to what’s coming up ahead.

OOONO explained: “Both the CO-DRIVER NO1 and CO-DRIVER NO2 stand out as simple and intuitive devices, automatically activating upon detecting movement, ensuring drivers can focus solely on the road rather than using a smartphone or navigating through an app.

Christian Walther Øyrabø, Founder & CEO of OOONO A/S, said: "Our Road Safety Devices are a true support for drivers, allowing them to maintain high concentration while driving and avoid potential road hazards and speed cameras, all without having to look at their smartphone. Our aim is to provide drivers with options that cater to their specific needs, ensuring a safer and more focused driving experience and helping increase traffic safety.

“Not only are motorists buying into safer driving, they also become part of a growing ‘community’ helping other road users become safer motorists.”

Join the community

The alerts on speed cameras (fixed, mobile, and traffic lights) and road hazards (accidents, roadworks, debris, breakdowns) are in real time, and to help ensure the information is bang up to date, the CO-DRIVER relies on data from OOONOs community of users and data from the European database Blitzer.

Drivers can tap the device to confirm the hazard is still there or push the button on the CO-DRIVER NO2 to dismiss it, if the road is now clear, helping keep the information right up to date and meaning the more people that use it, the more effective it becomes.

Win a CO-DRIVER NO2

CO-DRIVER NO1 is a simple and effective device which gives audio-visual warnings, while CO-DRIVER NO2 is a more sophisticated product with advanced features, including in-app navigation which is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The NO1 device retails at £44.99 and the NO2 device at £69.99
