Texting while driving is a major problem today, and I think it's pretty clear people aren't going to quit doing it. You can blast people with all the ads and commercials and statistics you want, but let's admit it, people won't stop doing it unless there's a better alternative.
So, here's my idea: what if car manufacturers actually took a step backwards with technology and abandoned Bluetooth connectivity in vehicles?
I envision a car where there's a dock for your iPhone in the steering wheel. The car would have very good integration with iOS, but only if the phone is docked. Once the phone's removed, turn-by-turn goes off, your music stops, and Siri is gone.
Would this be enough to get people to stop texting & driving?
