Washington DC could be on to something that Washington (and other states/ cities) may soon emulate – sending serious, and tailored, warning notices to bad drivers on their cell phones. DC is working on a program which identifies drivers with a history of traffic violations – speeding tickets, red-light violations etc. – and alerting them of their traffic infraction history and dangerous driving behavior. The intent is to ultimately curb bad driving, reduce serious traffic injuries and fatal crashes; in essence, DC wants to ‘scare people straight‘. These tailored messages will start in 2021. They will be part of an 18 month pilot program. So the question is, can targeted messaging to high-risk drivers prevent bad driving, serious traffic injuries and/or fatal crashes? In approximately 18 months we shall know, and if successful, there is little doubt other states and/or cities will also implement a similar campaign against bad driving.
