[quote="joejlitz"]Interesting idea. What's the difference between this and putting a CB in every vehicle and telling people to tune into channel 4 if they want to transmit/receive this kind of information?
How do you keep irresponsible people from abusing this?[/quote]
Thanks. Good one. I am familiar with radio controlled roads, as I use them just about every week.
What I had in mind was more of an LCD type device on your dashboard, perhaps with radar or GPS to detect all traffic ahead, behind you, mandatory for everyone on the highway to have, so you can communicate.
1-Currently, cops have no way of communicating with drivers, except chasing you down.
2-Communication can be restricted to images/animations.e.g. animation of a moose, animation of a car crash e.t.c..
3-Ever been driving down the highway, and someone is following you too closely. There should be a button/signal you send to them to ask them to back off!!!
4-There's always potential for abuse, just as on radio controlled roads. Perhaps a 'ticket" for anyone abusing the system.
5- Think of this as social networking with all the vehicles you share a road with.
