this could be dangerous. It'll let you send a text to another driver without you seeing their cell phone number. Safe uses for this is to let them know their brake/tail lights are out. But I see too great an opportunity for road rage to be escalated.
Cool, I want ringside tickets for the fights these will provoke and start! Mmmmm.... he called you a b****.. that's worth another kick or two! lol

My best friend and I schemed this idea up when we were teens. Our idea though, was to have a car phone (haha, yea way before the cell phone) number be the license plate number.....

I've have seen two gals just last month driving while texting on a 4-lane 45mph road.

She was driving 30mph and swerving like a drunk driver.

Then the gal that almost side-swiped me while texting....

Really, anything encouraging people to text or even call while driving is a bad idea.
