How many times has it pissed you off when someone cut you off or parked like crap? Well, there’s now an app for that. Hawaii-based Zapatag allows you to report drivers who drive like crap. Actually you can also report drivers who drive well and/or have nice cars or interesting license plates.
You can add information about what the driver looked like and what the car looks like. Zapatag is almost like a Yelp for drivers. Photos can be uploaded as well and the state car tags/plate images are available which makes the search results look more authentic.
The service would benefit from a mobile application which would allow for photos of the cars to be uploaded. The only reason I am not crazy about a mobile app is that it could lead to some usage while driving which is a no-no.
The NYC MTA has a campaign running that tells rides when they see something, they should say something. I could see Zapatag working in a similar way. If enough people create reports for a particular car, perhaps the local authorities might want to look into the complaints. I wonder if an insurance company like Allstate or Geico would be the perfect sponsor or partner for Zapatag.
