Talk:Women hitchhiking

From Hitchwiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

I am a university student at Clemson University, in the United States. For a class project, I am building an app to try and make it safer to women to hitchhike. Any suggestions for the application would be greatly appreciated.

Do you mean a rideshare app? Most active Hitchwiki editors do not feel that rideshare services are relevant to Hitchwiki. CRCulver (talk) 22:57, 3 September 2013 (CEST)
My intention is not to build a rideshare app. I'm an active hitchhiker myself and would agree with said editors. What I propose is a mobile app that a hitchhiker can take a photo of a driver's license plate. That photo is then stored remotely for those with permission (friends and family) to access. The photos would use geolocation so that the travelers physical progress could be tracked. The app would also have a check-in and panic button (in case of emergencies). Any ideas for additional features would be great though! --Nemostravels (talk) 23:04, 3 September 2013 (CEST)
Maybe a database of local emergency phone numbers and a list of closest police stations? --MrTweek(talk) 01:12, 4 September 2013 (CEST)
