There is no phone call that's worth risking lives.

there should be a device that blocks all cell phone signals in all civilian vehicles. a simple ban would not work since there are not enough cops to enforce it. people won't loose calls either because if the cellphone is off or out of range the call just gets dropped in voice mail.

For the cars with built in touch screens, when the car is not in park it needs to disable the touch pad and go to voice control only. Make the screen go black. That way, legit uses for things like a built in GPS that reads you directions aloud will still be possible, but you will be less likely to take your eyes off the road to post a Facebook status about the really neat wreck you just passed.
