Before we find needless ways to unnecessarily increase the cost of an automobile: first we need to get people to care about their health enough to deal with it; second with mere phones even WITH hands free devices still being identified as a root cause of accidents and already on the NTSA chopping block, you seriously want to consider engaging people in more detailed, more stress related information processing that takes their attention away from the road? This is another solution without a problem. Driving is a responsibility that requires attention.
