Safe drivers will be rewarded with cash prizes under a new council initiative.

Sydney’s Northern Beaches Council and safe-driving app UbiCar have teamed up to launch the Northern Beaches Safest Driver Competition.

Residents who participate have the chance of snapping up weekly cash rewards and the ultimate winners will share a prize pool of $5000.

Northern Beaches Council mayor Michael Regan tells Deborah Knight the scheme is “all about making drivers safer and making them more aware”.

The safest driver will be judged by the UbiCar app which “works in the background and measures everything from phone distraction to speeding to acceleration, braking and cornering”.
