Zapatag Lets You Passively Express Your Road Rage

Ever have one of those days when your driving to work and get cut off by an inconsiderate driver? Ever then get the urge to tell the world about how bad of a driver he or she is?

Well now you can, with a new website Zapatag. At Zapatag, type in the driver's car license number and a brief description of what happened. The number and description are then added to a growing database of license plates that is searchable by the public.

It is important to note that the site does not attach any personal information to you or the other driver, it simply records the drivers license number.

The site does not simply give you an outlet to shout at another driver, but to compliment her or him as well. Some of the messages to the site include "Cool bumper sticker" and various other compliments.

The site is still pretty new, so not many Michigan license numbers have been added, but I'm sure this will grow with time.

In addition, you have the ability to send a tweet via your phone or other twitter client that will instantly upload the license number and the description. To read more about Zapatag's twitter integration check this site.
