Gov Looking at Technology That Would Disable Cell Phones In Cars

Here is another great example of how the Government thinks your too stupid to do the right thing, so they have to do it for you.

According to an Article on The Hill, The Department of Transportation is looking at technology that will disable Cell phones in cars:

"The Transportation Department is looking into technology to disable cell phones in vehicles, according to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.

"There's a lot of technology out there that can disable phones and we're looking at that," LaHood said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

"A number of those people came to our distracted driving meeting here in Washington and that's one way," he said.

LaHood seemed to suggest that this technology has a good chance of making its way into cars.

"I think it will be done," he said.

Wireless companies see signal scrambling technology as a blunt instrument in the fight against distracted driving, pointing out that cell phones are just one distraction in the car."

Next thing you will see is the DOT looking at making gags mandatory so you can't eat in your car.

You Laugh... But the way things are going, does it seem that far fetched?
