MOTORWAY BUDDY, an app to assist truckers to plan overnight parking, has been improved with UK theft and vehicle interference data to identify safer parking options, reports American Journal of Transportation News.

The app has been downloaded 130,000 times and used over three million times. A partnership between Motorway Buddy, freight industry insurer Through Transport (TT) Club and National Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service (NaVCIS).



Data is gathered by NaVCIS Freight to show a map of vulnerable parking locations to Motorway Buddy's search engine for overnight parking. The app will also allow truckers to report suspicious incidents.



'I am pleased that with the support of TT Club and the cooperation of NaVCIS the app can become even more valuable in helping not just drivers but also the haulage companies identify safer overnight stops and pay charges online. The heat map is dynamic and updated on a regular basis. The locator tool and zoom-in facility are easily used and provide flexibility in the case of traffic congestion and other delays,' said ex-trucker Chris Holloway.
