What is PlateWire?

PlateWire is a public repository and electronic forum of drivers by drivers. Using a drivers license plate, commuters can communicate their thoughts and feelings in regards to driving on today's roadways.

Award a good driver for their good deed Award

Award Flag Wink Hazard

To "Award" a driver, is to say thanks to a driver for showing courtesy and thoughtfulness.

To "Flag" a driver, is to warn a driver of his/her rude and/or careless behavior that you have witnessed.

To "Wink" at a driver, is to send a flirtacious message to a driver you've encountered.

To "Hazard" a driver is to warn them of a physical hazard that their vehicle exhibits.

We're always questioning whether or not the police in our states really monitor sites like these. I remember a while back someone flagging the driver of an suv who caused/nearly caused an accident. The police on the scene wouldn't go to hunt that person down, even w/ vehicle descrp. and plate because there was no descrp. of driver. Maybe we should also, if and when possible, write down a descrpt. of operator so that if they show up here often enough, the cops can really pull them over and have some legal comeuppance. ????

 BattleCat: I agree, and this is why the upcoming version of PW will have more fields available in the file wire screen, including driver gender, more exact location, and incident time.

On a side note: Although this bug will be gone in the next version, make sure to clear your PlateWire cookies prior to login and that should eliminate those blank postings.

Onliest thing I got to say about that is that I have been truly confused about the gender of any number of individuals.

I've also seen very nice people who look like they are fresh out of Iowa lay the Latin heat on me like I was a hot pan with sizziling oil throwed on me.

Just be careful is all I'm saying.

With the over-the-liners, I have a hard enough time just getting the plate as it zips by me, let alone the vehicle - whether it is light or dark.

I can usually tell the type of vehicle (minivan, SUV, small sedan, pickup truck), but beyond that, I don't get the make many times when they are going the other way.

As for seeing the driver, I may catch a glimpse and could perhaps tell if it was a man or woman, but beyond that, it would be difficult.


On the other hand, if someone is riding my ass (which is a frequent occurrence), I can typically see their stupid face in my mirror. The closer they are, the more stupid they look to me.

 Nice use of the word 'comeuppance'. Is that in the dictionary?

by-tor, he has a different dictionary than normal people use. I use the same one as he, because I'm not normal either.

Yes cat battle, they are watching and so are a few of the insurance companies. I got hooked on this site back in 1962....would you believe January 2007? Who am I? Go to the Washington Blogs and read "Welcome to my World", Feb 12th. No, not that Washington, Washington State. Let me know what you think, I'll check back here later.
