Now you can avoid doing something stupid on the road in retaliation and still get a little bit even. Two Washington, D.C.-area men have created a Web site that allows people to post the license plate numbers of bad drivers. Mark Buckman, a northern Virginia computer consultant, told The Washington Post he's outraged by careless, rude or inattentive drivers. He's co-founder of platewire.com. Buckman said they have hundreds of messages from drivers venting over the idiots they encounter on the roads. The messages have headings like "Maniac" and "Jerk on the Phone."The site says it is not just for complaining. On the site's introduction it says, "Report and flag bad drivers, award good drivers, and even flirt with cute drivers." ~~~~~ What do you think about a site like this? Would you post a message there?

I think that is hilarious! But, is it anonymous? People could get into more trouble this way than if they just leave it alone. I wouldn't do it because I could never remember the license numbers, unless it's a vanity plate.

It is definitely anonymous. I don't even see anyplace you can leave your info if you wanted to. You do have to know the other person's license number, though. The messages are all based on that.

I think it is a wonderful idea. I rate this discussion a plus. I would post on this website. But only it the driver almost caused an accident. But I would defaintly read it often.

What ever happened with your accident? Were they able to catch the person who hit you? How is your back feeling?

Do you think this is a good idea? Would you post a message to this site?

Oh this is GREAT!!! I LOVE this idea and I would definitely post a message on there. Of course, those people who end up on that site are going to be angry and just "not understand" why they are listed there, but it's still a wonderful way to get your point across.

Hopefully, people will save their anger for posting on this website and there will be less road rage on the streets. I think one of the reasons emotions have gotten so out of control (and sometimes even murderous) between drivers is that people feel so helpless when they feel another driver has offended them in some way. I hope this site will give people the empowerment they need to feel and will stop some of the senseless action between drivers.
