Cops To Use ‘Textalyzers’ To Probe Distracted Driving
[link to newyork.cbslocal.com]

A bill has been introduced in New York which aims to increase distracted driver accountability.

If passed it would let police use technology at the scene of a crash to determine if the collision was related to distracted driving.


Assistant Speaker of the Assembly Felix Ortiz introduced the bipartisan bill which would help create a protocol for police and allow them immediate access to drivers’ cell phones.


Much like a breathalyzer detects whether a driver is drunk, a so-called ‘textalyzer’ would determine if a person was on the phone at the time of the crash.

Cellebrite, an Israeli tech company confirmed they are developing it. They insist there are no privacy concerns.

This is rich! If they can even get into the phone how do they know? Could be a passenger. Could be hands-free.
