Textecution puts an end to teen texting while driving

With more and more research showing that texting while driving is a major distraction and can cause accidents it's no wonder that many states are imposing costly fines for drivers who choose to drive while intexticated.

Texting while driving is especially popular amongst teens, and preventing young drivers from disobeying cell phone laws is as hard as getting Maria Shriver to stop talking while driving.

Thankfully there's a simple answer to this problem for anyone with an Android phone, like the T-Mobile MyTouch, a program called Textecution.

Textecution is a program that runs on Android phones and uses the onboard GPS to know how fast the phone is moving. If it detects the phone traveling at speeds that indicate it is in a car, Textecution disables the texting functions of the phone.
