WASHINGTON - The Transportation Department is launching a free app for iPhones and iPods that gives real-time vehicle safety information.
Consumers can use the "SaferCar" app to look for crash test ratings for vehicles by make and model. They can also use the app to file a vehicle safety complaint, find recall information, subscribe to recall notices and find the nearest car seat intallation station.
Vehicle safety information is also available on SaferCar.gov, run by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The agency is developing a version of the app for Android devices.
