Drivers Send Anonymous Texts To Each Other Through Their License Plates
CurbTXT is a new service in San Francisco where registered vehicles can send useful messages to one another about their vehicles.
CurbTXT allows anyone to send texts to drivers in San Francisco. The service lets people register their license plate numbers to an online database so others can send them a message if there is a problem.
It was launched to be an altruistic way for people to communicate when someone’s car alarm is going off, their car is blocking a driveway, their lights were left on, etc. The instant and direct communication is anonymous and one-way, so drivers don’t know who sent the message and can’t reply.
