Most recent laws on driver behavior when behind the wheel forbid the use of cellphones for texting and chatting. And in case this doesn’t stop you from being a bad boy/girl, there’s always Ford’s MyKey and the new Key2SafeDriving that combines a cellphone jammer with the key of your car.
The actual jamming is more of a “driving mode” for your phone, that connects via Bluetooth or RFID to that above-mentioned key. While Key2SafeDriving is in action, any person who calls or texts you will receive an automated response that informs them you’re driving.
There’s also support for handsfree devices and it turns out that this technology will reach the market within the following six months. A key will cost less than $50 plus a monthly service fee.
