Driver-Ratings.com allows users to vent their road rage by posting license plate numbers and comments about good or bad drivers on the road. The goal is to reduce road rage and let drivers save their fury for the keyboard.
Here’s how it works: Users can go to the website and search for drivers by entering a license plate number and state. They may then read previous ratings about the driver, or can enter their own rating by checking the driver as “good” or “bad” and leave a comment about their experience. Users may also upload photos of bad parking jobs as well as video uploads to further document their story. Safety is the number one priority of the website and urges users not to use the site while driving.
The Department of Transportation states that most of the approximate 6 million car accidents each year are caused by irresponsible driving behavior. While the site does not claim to replace the authority of local police and the DMV, it allows drivers an alternative means to confront bad drivers without a physical altercation resulting in violence.
The website has received over 75,000 license plate ratings since its beta launch two months ago with around 70% of the ratings being positive. Still, there are some pretty hilarious comments about bad drivers:
About a bad driver in California: “If you kid is an honor student, perhaps they can teach you how to drive.”
About a bad driver in Texas: “This person drives their car likes it’s a weapon” about a bad driver in Texas
About a naked driver in Washington: “We drove past him and I was like ‘Is that guy naked??’ and my roommate was like ‘No, he probably has shorts on’. Nope.”
