"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.
