A cell phone application that inhibits the use of text messaging while a vehicle is in motion.

Write an application that uses GPS to decide whether or not a user is in motion. This application would inhibit the use of the text messaging app while people are moving. Might be an issue as sometimes you are a passenger (or just out walking around) and not the driver, but something to keep people from texting while driving. Thoughts?
