Startup Idea #57: Network to reduce deaths from car accidents

I have been having goose bumps reading articles talking about the power of being good (this and this). The sheer power of the ideas being articled is nothing less than tectonic.

One idea I have after reading an article about Larry Page saying the same things is to reduce deaths from car accidents. Singapore has one of the highest deaths in per capital terms. Many of these deaths occur in highways. Why is that so? Well, because the training and lessons we receive never teach us the dangers of highways. So, the idea here is built a network that connects people who want to teach highway safety to new drivers. Simple but value adding.

Of course, we can use all the rich media like video and such to show how highway accidents occur, how to prevent it, how to spot danger et al. However, the most important thing to develop mechanisms that connect people who really want to help to people who need that. So things like reputation mechanisms, recommendation engines, location search et al become important. When all these is up, we can be open and allow out developers to put useful applications that fit the theme of network.

I am beginning to see the huge untapped market potential that BubbleGen was talking about: using the 'being good' perspective lets you see different opportunities. Do the same and you can see the potential for yourself!
