Waze, a traffic navigation app developed by Google, will now alert you when you are traveling on a road with a crash history, the company said on Tuesday.

Before they even get to that portion of the route, the feature will warn drivers that they are going into an area that is likely to have accidents. Waze will, however, only display a certain number of alerts on the roads that drivers frequently travel on; Google claims that this restriction is meant to reduce driver distraction.

According to a spokesman, the alerts were generated using artificial intelligence that examined road characteristics like normal traffic volumes, elevation, and whether the route is on a road or a highway.

According to the spokesperson, reports from the Waze community, which offer historical crash data, are also the basis for crash history alerts.
