Personally i'd ban the use of cellphones while the car is in motion. Most of them now have accelerometers. Use it. Disable the phone if the car is moving. Less distracted morons on the road is good for everyone. Oh you're a passenger? We'll have passenger mode. Get caught driving with your phone in passenger mode? $10,000 fine and a month in jail. We'll put a stop to driving while distracted real quick. At least for phones. Is it perfect? Nope. But it's a good start.

Why do you include all the accelerometer/disabling/passenger mode steps and not just skip to "Get caught driving with your phone? Huge fine & jail time."? It would require a lot less hurdles.

Personally, I'd prefer taking the device out of the equation, and just stick to "Driving badly? Heavy consequences." Much simpler.

That's exactly right. Here he is refuting any current or future plans to do this: It's a misunderstanding of his interview. He just said it was theoretically possible, but would require an adventurous woman.

Sending email or a text message without even having to use equipment like a cell phone

Sure, all you need to avoid equipment like a phone is equipment like electrodes implanted in your head.

From the methods section of the paper: Electrocorticographic (ECoG) recordings were obtained using subdural electrode arrays implanted in 15 patients

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
