"How's My Driving Now" is a device that mounts inside of your car with a keyboard and a screen that permits you to inform other drivers or to be informed by other drivers as to good or bad driving.

Each participant in the HMDN will have a bumper sticker or a decal with their ID number. Simply key in the ID number of that vehicle and send him a friendly reminder of his poor driving practices. Likewise if they perform an act of courtesy like allowing you to merge into traffic, you can send a kind "thank you" to that vehicle. So when you accidentally get distracted at a green light and you hold up the traffic, rather than getting a series of dirty looks and obsene gesture waves, you can now get your complaints through your HMDN unit.

       You can't tell from the insults screamed at you?!   

       But isn't this really just another car-to-car messaging system, which we already have way too many of around here?

       Ooh...sounds like a job for RFID! Meh...I feel automotive user interfaces are already too complicated. It might be worth considering if it was controlled completely by speech recognition.
