(KNX 1070) -- Los Angeles is holding a competition for the city's safest drivers -- and the winner could walk (or drive) away with prizes totaling $70,000.  

The contest runs from June 3-July 26 and is open to drivers 18 years and older who currently reside or regularly travel through the L.A. area. 

The contest is in partnership with United Services Automobile Association (USAA) and Cambridge Mobile Telematics (CMT). 

To participate in the eight-week contest, contestants are asked to download an app to their smartphone.

The app runs automatically, activated based on phone movement and deactivated when the phone is turned off. Using mobile telematics, the app will track five key measures: speed, acceleration, braking, cornering, and distraction. The app will score each trip individually for a combined score of 100 possible points.

The prizes include $20,000 for the Safest Overall Driver, $10,000 for the safest Military/Veteran Driver and $7,500 for the Least Distracted Driver. Just download the app, and stay focused!
