Car:Rating Bad Drivers

Marking Bad Drivers For Tickets
  [vote for,

This is a way to catch those bad or reckless drivers by ordinary citizens. Every vehicle would have a small computer installed. Those drivers who would like to participate would pay for a special electronic tag marking "gun" which when pointed at a reckless vehicle would emit a marking "tag" in that vehicle's computer. When a set number of tags are logged into a vehicle's computer (say 10 tags for example), it would send out a signal that could be detected by Law Enforcement vehicles. The tagged vehicle would then be given a general "traffic nuisance" citation. Three traffic nuisance tickets in a 6 month period, the driver's license is suspended. To avoid missuse of the marking guns, a fee (say $20) would be billed each time the gun is used to tag a vehicle and a yearly limit could also be set.

pretty similar to this idea by [Eeyore] [krelnik, Oct 04 2004]


       This is really really terrible ... FINALLY a way to stereotype people that the police will pay attention to aswell ... I already get this in my area as I ride a sportbike ... I really can't say enough foul things about this idea, sorry [-]

       "...a fee (say $20) would be billed each time the gun is used..."
Which reduces the odds a poor person could afford to. Meanwhile, the Hilton sisters finish off this week's trust fund deposit by driving around L.A. zapping cars just for the fun of it.

       I could only endorse this idea if the "no panties" part were mandatory

       I thought the Ohio license plate pretty much told the story...
