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.

Texting made impossible

The driver cannot text if the phone disables it's own ability to do so.

Full Description

Create an app with which the cell phone senses that it is in a moving vehicle and within 1.5' of the steering column components, causing it to incapacitate it's own texting ability. While incapacitated, if a text message is received, the sender receives an automatic response indicating that the receiver is driving and will respond when it is safe to do so.

In addition to the above suggestion, the laws in every state should prohibit texting while driving under all circumstances. The fines and prison time should should fit the crime. If it is known that texting while driving is 6x more dangerous than driving intoxicated, then the fines and prison time should be 6x more severe for those that insist on texting while driving. Here's a bonus: these fines would certainly be of help with our economis situation.
