This disclosure describes virtual assistant based techniques for communication between vehicles in proximity to each other. Users register pertinent information such as license plate number, contact information, etc. at a registry. While driving, a user requests their virtual assistant to send a message to a nearby vehicle, e.g., by providing an observed license plate number or a portion thereof. With user permission, location data is accessed to identify nearby vehicles that match the user’s specification. When a nearby vehicle is identified that matches the user specification, the virtual assistant checks if the user of the identified vehicle permits being contacted. If so, the virtual assistant delivers the message to the target user.
