The title is a mouthful but basically tells it all.
I have posted this on a lot of facebook pages and sent it to a lot
of newspapers and politicians around the world. It is on the United
Nations, European Union and White House facebook pages.
If you want to send it anywhere else, please do. And please ask your
government to consider the idea to save lives. The idea is not
patented, I am a fool. I trust the world and I know if the idea does
get used it will provide the biggest payment of all. A life saved.
This is a message to all governments in the world. You have people
dying while using mobile phones in their cars, some say it is thousand
or more a year, another hundred thousand or more end up in hospitals
because of using mobile phones in cars.
It can stop. Mobile communication devices need a simple tweak to have
the microphone listen for car engine noises or tyre on road noises and
when they are heard, the device turns off. Simple to do , and it can be
done in a simple upgrade of current systems and all it needs is someone
to say yes to the idea.
If your government legislates this idea all I ask is an annual
stipend of what ever you think is a fair amount of money for saving
lives and freeing up hospital space.
If you are a communication device company and want to use this idea
either off your own bat or because of legislation all I ask is 1 cent US
money per device per year.
You can send the payments via paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org
OK. People can’t seem to cope with the idea that the microphone on
the phone listening for car engine noises or road tyre noises would
actually have to be with the phone inside the car. That’s the whole idea
of the tweak. And noises of engines are entirely different inside a
car to the noises outside the car, ditto for the road tyre noises. Try
it for yourself. The phones will be tweaked to recognise engine noise
or road tyre noise – from where the phone is – inside a car. Next time
you start up your car listen to the engine when you are sitting in the
drivers seat and then get out, close the door (dont lock yourself out)
and listen to the engine outside- entirely different noises. The
biggest cost to doing this is getting the right noise for the
microphones to pick up, that will take about 3 weeks of testing in my
guesstimate. The listening for tyre noise on a road is to cater for
electric cars, again, when you are out driving turn the engine off and
listen to the noise of the tyres on the road. A rather different noise
to the noise of tyres heard from the road side. Don’t try turning the
engine off if you are in an automatic, not sure how that would react to
no engine running.
some more thinking about it. Incoming calls and texts would first
check to see if car engine noises could be heard and if YES there would
be no indication on the phone. Any attempt to call or text would also do
the noise check and not allow the handset to turn on if hte car engine
could be heard.
