Why isn't Is there a solution to radio interference?

I was reading about the Tenerife Disaster and came across what seemed to be the probable cause behind the accident.

A simultaneous radio call from the Pan Am crew caused mutual interference on the radio frequency, which was audible in the KLM cockpit as a three-second-long whistling sound (or heterodyne). This caused the KLM crew to miss the crucial latter portion of the tower's response. The Pan Am crew's transmission was "We're still taxiing down the runway, the Clipper 1736!". This message was also blocked by the interference and inaudible to the KLM crew. Either message, if heard in the KLM cockpit, would have alerted the crew to the situation and given them time to abort the takeoff attempt.

I understand that the science behind radio waves is the cause for this interference, but how comeis there isn't a solution (non-radio if need be) for when ATC and other aircraft talk over each other?

edit1: By solution I mean a way of only allowing 1 party to speak on a specific frequency at a time , be it technical or not. I would just want the possibility of pilots/ATCs talking over each other to be close to 0.  

edit2: I know the Tenerife disaster was caused primarily by the pilot's inability to wait for clearance, and then report it back, but this question is about radio interference and if a solution exists, not if fixing radio interference is a worthwhile task to begin with.
