There are at least 100 reasons as to why you may need to contact the owner of a vehicle.
And don’t forget YOU could be the owner of the vehicle in trouble...
Thanks to a mobile application downloadable on all platforms as well as a web version, it will now be possible to contact the owner of any car, van, truck or motorcycle through its license plate.
All that is required is that you are registered to WappyWap. This community of users are named “Wappers” and they send a “Wappy” or “Wappies” to each other.
Because of course, when you receive a Wappy, you can reply and "chat" with the sender.
And the cherry on top ? It's free of charge !
But what's the point ?
There is much in the way of security measures that WappyWap provides but the service does not solely enhance privacy and security.
Here are a few situations in which you may find yourself in need of sending a Wappy, whether at a standstill or while driving.
Your car is blocking traffic, an exit to a car park or obstructing a public transport route.
Your car is experiencing a technical problem (a detached part, a flat tyre, a headlight gone out, the start of a fire, etc…)
A motorist rear-ends your parked vehicle and then speeds away
Your car is being stolen or vandalised.
Traffic wardens are sanctioning close by parked vehicle with fines.
A fire has started closeby to your vehicle.
Traffic, a closed road, a diversion, an accident, speed cameras… you could find yourself notified by the community of Wappers.
You would like to meet the driver you saw at a red light or in a car park, just send him/her a Wappy!
You're looking for a second hand car, you will be automatically directed to sellers of that same model.
You’re selling your car, you post it as ‘for sale’ and Wappers will be made aware.
You can compose your own message or use ready-made wappies for different possible situations, add a photo or video and send them with a few very quick steps.
WappyWap also provides a way of communicating without needing personal details such as email addresses or mobile numbers.
