US May Disable All Car Phones, Says Trans. Secretary

from Slashdot by timothy

*** begin quote ***

gambit3 writes “The US government may require cars to include scrambling tech that would disable mobile-phone use by drivers, and perhaps passengers. ‘I think it will be done,’ US Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood said on Wednesday morning. ‘I think the technology is there and I think you’re going to see the technology become adaptable in automobiles to disable these cell phones.’ LaHood is on a self-described ‘rampage’ against distracted driving, and if making it impossible to use a mobile phone while in a car can save lives, he’s all for it.”

*** end quote ***

Guess he hasn’t heard about radios and ipods and police cruisers.

Why do we put up with this nonsense?
