A mobile app designed to make traffic stops safer, developed during CruzHacks 2024. Record interactions with police, assign and text emergency contacts, and be informed of your rights. I worked with a team of 4 to build a minimum viable product using SwiftUI, in a period of 36 hours. The app was selected for the Organizer's Pick award.
