New Gadget Allows Police To Jam Your Phone If Your Caught Driving While Talking

•, Doug Newcomb
 There’s no shortage of devices that supposedly prevent drivers from talking or texting by blocking mobile phone signals or that alert parents and employers about the behavior. But the Cellphone Accident Preventer (CAP) from a trio of researchers at an Indian university takes preventing behind-the-wheel mobile phone use to a new Orwellian level by making distracted-driving indiscretions public – and automatically ratting them out to the police.

Abdul Shabeer and two of his colleagues at India’s Anna University of Technology primarily developed CAP to combat the 20 percent of fatal road accidents involving trucks and other heavy vehicles caused by driver mobile phone use.

Because the rulers who've pulled you over or accosted you on the street or at your home certainly don't want you talking to your attorney or live casting their conversation with you over youtube without their permission.
