Software Blocks Texting, Browsing While Driving


USA TODAY - July 20, 2010

Laws in 30 states, Dis­trict of Colum­bia, and fed­er­al gov­ern­ment ban tex­ting while dri­ving, but they are dif­fi­cult to enforce. Soft­ware for smart­phones dis­ables tex­ting, e-mail­ing and Web-brows­ing while the vehi­cle is mov­ing, tak­ing the dri­ver out of the equa­tion.
