T-mobile introduces a feature that blocks calls and texts while people are driving.

The application automatically disables texting and call features when a phone senses it's moving faster than 10 miles per hour. Calls are sent directly to voicemail.

The "drive smart plus" service can be turned off in an emergency. Sprint, AT&T and Verizon are said to be looking at similar technology.
