Vehicle to Vehicle Micro-transmitters

Networked commute communications
 
(+1, -1)

Micro-transmitters of limited range, broadcast vehicle information to other vehicles in the vicinity. Information such as a vehicle's braking distance, location, proximity, weight, even cargo (flammable, gravel, baby on board, etc.), could be broadcast to other vehicles for processing by a computer to alert drivers of a possible need to modify their driving behavior. Several in-dash/on-steering-wheel buttons can be programmed for user-defined broadcasting of "Caution ahead", "Move over", "Back off", "Something is wrong with your car", etc.

       //a vehicle's breaking distance// I once had an old Vauxhall Cavalier that would break about every 120 miles.
