Now you can text people via license plate number.
What is CurbTxt?
CurbTxt is a new startup that aims to send you alerts about your car through its license plate number.
You can text the license plate–starting with the state abbreviation–of the vehicle you want to alert to CurbTXT ( 415.529.5775) with your message. For example: “CA3214567 you’re blocking my driveway – pls move” and then SEND.
A CurbTXT alert is anonymous and a one-way communication channel. Only if the sender includes his or her contact information and/or name in the message will you be able to reach that person or know who sent it.
How It Works:
First of all save the CurbTXT number ( 415.529.5775) in your phone so you can access it and recognize it easily.
Then affix the CurbTXT sticker next to your rear license plate so your neighbors know to alert you if there’s an issue with your ride
Best Part Is:
CurbTXT is completely anonymous. The text alert will contain only the contents of your message. However you may include your contact info in the message if you wish to get a direct reply.
For example, if you hit a parked car and it’s registered with CurbTXT, you might want to send them a message with your contact info instead of leaving a note.
