Have you ever seen someone driving so aggressively you’re certain they’re headed for an accident? Let’s use social media to shame these people into behaving better behind the wheel. Here’s how it will work:
You’re driving in your car and someone cuts you off. Bust out your phone, take a picture of their license plate and upload it to a site along with a 140 character comment. Or if local laws don’t allow smartphone use behind the wheel remember the plate for later use. Include an optional like/don’t like and over time you get an idea of the rudest (and kindest) drivers out there. Offer prizes as people rack up kudos and zings.
Let the local police department see who’s terrorizing the road the most so they can keep an eye on the troublemakers. Give people bumper stickers as they rack up merit badges for allowing you to merge in heavy traffic.
Businesses have to be getting sick of every nut job out there blogging, Yelping, Tweeting, TripAdvising their customer service. Time for everyone to be held accountable for their actions on the road- and this is the way to do it.
