New Site Lets People Report Dangerous Drivers 
The site, appropriately named can help make our roads safer for everyone 
How many times have we all been witness to reckless drivers that have put us and others in harms way. How helpless and powerless we feel, and have muttered to ourselves, "where's a cop when you need one?"

New Site Lets People Report Dangerous Drivers  
The database of traffic violations is freely accessible to everybody.  It is a very easy to use, simply enter a plate number and the state from which the plate is registered.  Then you will see any and all violation reports that have been filed against this particular vehicle.

With the introduction of a new web site, we can now identify those drivers that terrorize our roads and highways.  PIC America Inc., a Pittsburgh based company has just announced its new public service web site appropriately named

"Irresponsible and dangerous drivers have been the root cause of countless deaths and injuries for years. Every year, over 30,000 people are killed on our roads in this country and a large percentage of those deaths are directly attributable to reckless drivers", says Dennis White, co-founder of

"Short of having police and highway patrol vehicles stationed behind every bush, most people have concluded that it's a problem that we just need to live with or die with", says White.   Education and public safety announcements just do not work with a certain portion of the public.  Reckless drivers have one thing in common, they all say, 'there's no cops around, I can get away this,' whether it's speeding, running a stop sign or speeding through a school zone.

The solution to this problem is really quite simple says White.  "It's us against them and the good news is that there are far more safe drivers on the road than dangerous drivers.  It's a matter of the safe drivers banning together.  When you witness a reckless driver, just get their plate number, then when you get home, file a report at our web site, it's free and only takes a few minutes to file a report".

The database of traffic violations is freely accessible to everybody.  It is a very easy to use, simply enter a plate number and the state from which the plate is registered.  Then you will see any and all violation reports that have been filed against this particular vehicle.

Peer pressure and parental pressure may very well prove to be the key to stopping many of these drivers. Even dangerous drivers have loving friends and relatives that would be very disappointed if they were aware of their reckless driving habits.  An additional incentive for these reckless drivers would in essence put them on notice that their irresponsible driving will be monitored by others that choose to drive responsibly.

With your help, parents, spouses and other love ones will have access to the violation reports by simply knowing a plate number. was designed and developed by Dennis and Joseph White, a father and son team that strongly believe that this is a problem that can be remedied or at least significantly reduced, we just need to ban together says Joseph White.
