Regulating traffic accidents with music

I have found on numerous times that when i drive my car, depending on the music I listen and drive accordingly to the music beats and tempo.

What I am suggesting is a driving radio station, which can be on the phone of the users, and plays them music according to the street the people are in.

So suppose a user is waiting on traffic lights then the Gps of the mobile can detect that and start playing music that is calm and relaxing as he accelerates the music can be changed to something with more beat.

This can be done very easily, i have already been developing a website that searches music on mood or keyword (http://www.ilovethismusic.com/Song/Search?q=calm&searchType=Mood&songFormat=2).

All that would be left to be done would be a mobile application.

Anyway this is just some random idea I had, if you think you can improve on it please comment.

Update: I also think this could go nicely with automatic driving concepts.

    May 14 2011: Interesting idea! Why not have a self-learning system that can learn driver’s favorite music and correlate it with their driving style and over time calibrate the system to influence the driving behavior.

    It is easy to do and, with few hundred testers, it can easily be validated.

    I would love to contribute to this idea, if someone wants to turn it into a product and/or service.
