Text Others Via License Plate

Good Samaritans all over the world (or at least in San Francisco for now) can rejoice as CurbTXT, a new system allowing strangers to text you by actually using your license plate, launched late last year. Even though the system is completely anonymous, some may be put off by the idea of complete strangers texting you. However, the concept was made with good intentions—people who pass by your vehicle and notice that you’re blocking a driveway, or that your lights are still on, or even that your meter has run out, have an opportunity to text you and let you know. You could potentially avoid fines and being towed because of the CurbTXT system.

While there are some obvious pitfalls—random prank texts in particular—you are able to report these faux messages and have the abusers blocked.

While it may take some time for the rest of the country to adopt the system, it seems as though that the city of San Francisco is pushing forward with the project as the founders of CurbTXT have been trying to get support from San Francisco board of supervisors, possibly for city wide use as San Francisco is littered with parking pitfalls.

If anything else, drivers who park badly will finally get the heat they deserve.
