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

I have a better idea -- why not just assign a government worker to each car, to supervise the driver.
(obviously I am being sarcastic)
man our rights and freedoms are like spit on a hot griddle
Great! I’m sure I’ll be able to make a fine income supplement selling technology that disables technology that disables cell phones.
Its a good thing nobody in a car ever has to call 911.... /sarc
You can’t fix stupid!!
No hands free, passengers won’t be able to make calls either, you’d have to pull over and get out of your vehicle to make a call. Can you lean against your car to make a call? How far away from your vehicle will you have to be.
So there you are in a wreck, trapped in your car down an embankment and can’t call for help. How about Onstar?
God save us from these idiots.
Oh, sure, have a wreck and you can’t call for an ambulance. Real smart there, huh. So, you can’t sit in your car while it’s raining and buzz your spouse that you’re at the front door to pick him up from work? You can’t call the kids to come bring in the groceries? You’re in a bad neighborhood but you can’t call for directions out of it? If they block cell phones, will GPS and On Star also be blocked? Nope, sorry, not a good idea.
These people are out of control! Period, end of sentence!
Lahood is a hood from IL. He wants to track our cars with GPS and make us pay by the mile. He wants to have our cars record all data..and he wants to prevent us or are passengers from using a cell phone. He wants to force us into using trains.. And they call conservatives nazi’s?
Lahood is supposed to be a token GOP member of the cabinet, but it sounds like he is king of the Rino’s.
How about putting DHS in charge of placing spy cameras at every intersection and arresting people who use a cell phone? How about mandatory check points where people using cell phones can be stopped and run through Naked Body Scanners to save time and be more efficient? Check them also to see if they have illegally grown tomatoes or other home grown produce not approved by Monsanto? Please Congress pass some more laws to bind the American public with the chains of slavery and serfdom that we deserve because you are all so smart and we are all just stupid hicks clinging to our guns and religion.
This is nothing but an attempt to move consumers to On Star which is a Government Motors product. Cell phones are direct competition to this product and they dont like it. Not too long ago there was a commercial running were a guy gets into a accident and cant find his cell phone because of the impact. The hook was that On Star was there and came to the rescue.
I am the operator of a public utility. A water company. I have the responsibility for the health and the safety of 1,500 people. I’m on 24 hour, 365 days a year, emergency call. I have a cell phone for only one reason; that I can be reached no matter what I’m doing. This is stoopid! What about Doctors, etc.? This is stoopid!!!!!
Unreal this bunch is. What about amber alerts? among other 9/11 emergency’s.
Just saying... They wanna pull out international law, I can do the same.
Take the heart of a leader whose body reeks with B.O.
Next make a laHood Ornament by covering the body with Tar after inserting the Heart!
Construct a car with Micelle Radiac tires.
Make sure the frame is properly Ailinskied.
place it in the middle of the Mojave Desert under a full moon, (I can perform that!)
Voila cell phones would be french fries no chili please.

You’re being carjacked...
you’re having a medical emergency...
you’ve just witnessed a crash...
You need to dial 911 ASAP...
and Ray LaHood says pull over and find a pay phone.
I already took care of this. I registered as a democrat.
Follow the money trail to the technology, just like the money trail on the RAPISTscan TSA machines lead right to Chertoff and others.
Alcohol, tobacco, firearms ... and cell phones.
