Eliminate Texting & Driving - $2,000 USD Total Compensation

We all know that texting and driving is dangerous and has become a major cause of auto accidents, injuries and deaths. Teens are especially affected by this phenomenon with 97% saying it is dangerous, yet 43% admitting to texting while driving.

Speed based shutdown

Shuts down texting features other than a notification of a text while traveling at speeds greater than 15 mph.

Full Description

Develop an app that is triggered by the GPS in every phone that will shut down texting features other than a text notification chime while any vehicle is in motion at speeds greater than 15 mph. Can be installed as a factory option, or configured as a parental control application much like the GPS tracking feature that Verizon offers. It can be turned on/off by the parents via the phone or via the internet when a teen is driving. This feature could also be over ridden by vehicles with smart media systems when paired via bluetooth to the system. It would not allow the text to be entered or read manually, only audibly.
