Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said using a cell phone while driving is so dangerous that devices may soon be installed in cars
to forcibly stop drivers — and potentially anyone else in the vehicle — from using them.
"There's a lot of technology out there now that can disable phones and we're looking at that," said LaHood on MSNBC. LaHood said the cellphone scramblers were one way, and also stressed the importance of "personal responsibility."
The hosts of Morning Joe pushed the secretary about the possibility of requiring scrambling technology installed in vehicles.
"I think it will be done," said LaHood. "I think the technology is there and I think you're going to see the technology become adaptable in automobiles to disable these cell phones. We need to do a lot more if were going to save lives.
