Just when you thought a “Do Not Disturb” sign can be found only in motels and hotels, Ford has other ideas by introducing a Do Not Disturb button in MyFord-enabled cars. Pressing the button allows you to block incoming calls and text messages while driving, which is just as good since many states have already banning texting and calling while driving. Of course, it doesn’t just throw a blanket silence over your vehicle since you can also configure it to just block incoming calls only (or texts), helping divert calls into voicemail while saving texts to be read later. Voice control is also encouraged so that your hands remain on the wheel at all times. Expect this whole system to function over Bluetooth via the Ford Sync technology and will make a debut in the 2011 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX models.
