Research in Motion has been granted yet another patent, this one to keep users from texting and driving, sort of. The patent would make users have to enter a CAPTCHA code to access the phone while it was in motion. At a certain speed, the phone locks and to unlock it you’d have to do one of a series of  things, among those were math questions, identifying the object in the image and others. This is a rather ironic way of preventing users from using their BlackBerry while driving, or maybe even walking/running since we all know accidents can happen then too. Check out the full patent here.
