Link of the Day: Report Dangerous Drivers.com
Published On: December 4, 2008
Will wonders never cease? What an incredible website has now graced the Internet! www.reportdangerousdrivers.com is the ultimate in real life George Orwell (ianism). This site has special meaning to me since part of my practice revolves around representing fault-free people who’ve been injured at the hands of reckless drivers. I get enraged when I see the senseless physical and emotional pain that my clients go through because someone wasn’t paying attention or, worse, was driving erratically or angrily (can you say “road rage?”). This moment of dangerous driving changes innocent lives forever.
From the home page of www.reportdangerousdrivers.com comes their description and reason for existence:
Over 40,000 people are killed every year on American roads and highways and many of those deaths are directly attributable to reckless drivers. This website allows you to report dangerous drivers of any motor vehicle, including cars, trucks and motorcycles. When you witness a dangerous driving incident, simply get the license plate number of the vehicle. Then you will be able to post this incident on this website. An anonymous violation report is very easy to post, it takes just a few seconds to complete. After a violation report is posted, interested parties are notified via email and when possible, the owner of the vehicle is notified via mail of this violation.
With a searchable database that requires only the license plate number and the state of the plate, you can search for violation reports on any vehicle. This will give the public an opportunity to keep tabs on certain vehicles by viewing violation reports that have been previously filed. It’s also very useful to parents who’d like to know if their children are driving safely. Additionally, company owned cars, trucks and service vehicles can be tracked to ensure that they are being operated in a safe manner.
Many of us see dangerous driving everyday. Now, you will be able to file reports on those people that put so many innocent lives at risk. A variety of violations can be reported, for example: speeding, running red lights, road rage, tailgating, school zone violations or using cell phones in a reckless manner. click here to see a summary of recently reported violations.
Here’s a smattering of the violation categories that you will find: Speeding, tailgating, reckless driving, road rage, driving too slowly and, of course my all-time favorite, cell phone stupid.
