(PIX11) — Pedestrian safety is a hot topic when it comes to New York safety.

Now there’s an app for that.

AT&T, NYC Media Lab, and NYU are sponsoring a traffic safety initiative that seeks a technical solution to some of New York City’s most pressing pedestrian problems.

The app contest calls on developers to “use smart phone technology and wireless networks to make pedestrians, cyclists and motorists more aware of their surroundings and alert them to potential dangers,” according to a media release.

The deadline is Sept. 9, 2014 and includes thousands of dollars in prizes.
