We reported a few newsletters ago (Issue #93) that the overwhelmed police department in Delhi, India is encouraging people to post alleged traffic violations to the department’s Facebook page.
Now Shazam co-founder Philip Inghelbrecht has upped the ante by introducing DriveMeCrazy (http://drivemecrazy.mobi/index.php), a smartphone app that allows anyone to anonymously write a virtual traffic ticket, making the results available to the DMV and insurance companies in the process.
What could possibly go wrong with that?
To issue the pseudo-citation, the DriveMeCrazy (DMC) user submits a “bad flag” against a motorist by verbally entering the alleged offender’s license plate number into the smartphone along with a description of the perceived offense. That information, along with date, time and location, is entered into the DMC database, which is accessible to all.
