engine vibration = no service

A very simple solution would be to add sensor technology to the phones, interrupting all service when frequencies typical of engine noise & vibration are detected.

Then, of course, you’d have to re-legislate common sense for the ninnies who would drive with their heads in a sound-proof bag.
