The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration proposed new guidelines for cars and includes disabling some electronic devices while people drive.
The federally proposed recommendations encourage car makers to ensure devices in vehicles are less likely to distract the driver.
They include disabling some operations while moving like manual text messaging, internet browsing, social media browsing, entering an address for a navigation system, ten digit phone dialing and displays with more than 30 characters of text.
Elizabeth Sutton's car comes with many bells and whistles. "I have a 2008 BMW 550i sport loaded, navigation bluetooth."
Not things she necessarily uses everyday."I use the navigation sometimes, but I need to get it updated," she said.
Like Sutton's, some new cars now come with systems that can do anything from navigating your way, to making phone calls, but NHTSA hopes to cut some of those possible distractions.
