About

 Driver Accountability. Driver Retribution.

Your support will enable us to complete what we feel is the most innovative website of 2015. In this unique campaign you not only get a chance to access early site content and limited edition rewards, you also get the opportunity to shape the future of the website service!

Anyone who has operated a motor vehicle can attest to the courteous and discourteous actions preformed on the roadways by our fellow drivers. Some may be seemingly deliberate, while some mistakes are truly unintentional. In either case, the safest action is to carry on and practice safety on thoroughfares. Don’t let your temper get the best of you and don’t fall victim to road rage. By utilizing our site you will find an outlet for the stress or anger and hold violators accountable, all while maintaining anonymity. Your actions on our site will empower you to participate in a massive online collaborative effort to help document these events.  As an added benefit many of the activities you execute gain you points helping to unlock badges and rankings revealing online records of achievement.

Please take a moment to read the summary below and view our website. Afterward, please pledge and support creativity, inspiration, and originality!

What is it? Citizen Citation is intended to provide frustrated drivers a free, anonymous, non-confrontational, alternative method of which to express gratification, frustration or dissatisfaction of actions experienced and/or observed on public thoroughfares. Additionally, the information provided by our peers in some cases, may in fact, help unmask possible shortcomings or bad habits we ourselves may unknowingly perform while operating a motor vehicle.

How does it work? It really is quite simple. If you observe extreme actions of a motor vehicle, whether good or bad, you can submit a Citizen Citation to document the incident. The basic information that is required to issue a Citizen Citation is a complete or partial license plate or tag number. All events are archived and available through a searchable database on the site. Individuals who issue a citation remain anonymous to the public. User participation will earn points helping to earn a variety of accolades varying from badges to advancements within the Citizen Citation ranking status. Everyone starts at basic training level in their home zip code. User interaction on the site will earn specific points which accrue, allowing promotions in rank within jurisdictions. Once a user has reached a maximum rank in a certain zone the promotion includes an expansion into the neighboring zone. Earn bragging rights over your friends as your interactions gain you promotions. Each zone will have a commissioning agent, the highest rank held by a single user. Once attained, this position can be held indefinitely, but will carry a certain level of responsibility, ensuring those holding this prestigious position are active contributors to the cause. Your involvement in our Kickstarter campaign is a great opportunity to get a head start on points and help ensure you stay ahead in the rankings and possibly grab that commissioning rank!

Where can you use it? Anything from a mobile device, desktop, tablet or any device utilizing a compatible operating system and software; while obeying all local laws of course.

When can you use it? Our goal is to have the site functional and ready for public use by September of 2015. Once launched we will make the site available 24 hours a day 7 days a week (not responsible for outages due to service provider complications, natural disasters, or other unforeseen events that may prevent service).

Why should you use it? How often have you observed dangerous actions on the roadways all without the presence of any law enforcement, leaving yourself without a safe way to do something about it? Our site allows anyone to be in the right place at the right time. Among the features to be included on the site is a monitoring feature allowing registered users the ability to receive alerts for assigned plate numbers; allowing you to:

  • Monitor new driver habits. Perhaps that new teen who is on the parents’ insurance plan.
  • Track worsening driver habits. Maybe there are concerns about the ability of an elderly family member.
  • Verify your own presumed driving habits.
  • It might be a good idea to search that plate of the unfamiliar peer-to-peer 'ride sharing' chauffeur.

Following are a few of the many features to be included within the site:

  • Badges are earned by players by accomplishing differing predefined objectives. Badges are for bragging rights and will be displayed as an online records of achievement associated with a user’s profile.
  • User ranking system comparing active users based on points earned through completed objectives and a tier system based on accumulative performance.
  • Virtual positions of authority located in many differing jurisdiction levels ranging from neighborhoods, cities, states and more will be up for grabs.
  • Every license plate on file will be assigned a grade. This grade is calculated based on the actions documented on CitizenCitation.com. All events recorded, good or bad, are weighted based on severity; similarly to how some authorizes structure fees and driving records points.

Risks and challenges

The website currently under development and the publicly available portion is not functional. The pages currently display static images that represent the layout and features our website will provide.

We have an initial goal of $20,000. The goal amount is enough to cover all of the expenses for this Kickstarter and will allow us to complete the primary features and functions of the website required to provide a seamless user friendly and effective service.

In the least, even if our website serves as a nonviolent alternative outlet for a single frustrated individual, thereby preventing a hostile incident, then we have succeeded in our goal.

Please support us, empower yourself and influence your peers’ to create a world that you feel safe driving in.

Keep clam, drive on…

Thank you for your support!
