Cutting off the cell in the car


In the Costco Connection (Apr 2010), a mother is described as being horrified when her teenage son was practicing for his license, took a call, and swerved around alarmingly.

Teens are easily distracted and they aren’t the only ones.

This mother then devised some software called iZup (www.illumesoftware.com) to work on certain cellphones.

At more than 5 mph, it launches and shuts down the handset.

In case of emergency, three preselected numbers get through or goes out. 911 always works.

What do you think, readers?
