Want to give an “award” to a good driver?
How about warning a driver that his/her driving is rude or dangerous?
Maybe you just want to flirt with someone you saw on the road.
Perhaps you want to report to someone that something is wrong with their vehicle which is causing a physical hazard.
All this is now possible at www.platewire.com.
It works by your posting their license plate number on the website and then sending one of the above in a message called a “wire.”
We think it is generally a bad idea (although the “award” part might be a good idea) because it is always better to allow the proper authorities to handle bad or dangerous driving issues, rather than taking matters into your own hand. After all, you never know who you’re dealing with out there(so you might be putting yourself in danger).
Also, holding on to your anger until you get to a computer to make a report is not good for you.
Better to ignore dangerous or rude drivers and simply get on with your life. Even if you post something negative about someone, chances are they won’t see themselves as the problem; research shows most aggressive drivers think the other guy is at fault.
Instead, we recommend you relax, listen to music, don’t make eye contact, avoid making hostile or rude gestures toward them, and think rational thoughts.
