‘Textalyzer’ To Catch Distracted Drivers

Texting-While-Driving Bill to Hit House Floor_1611298023143064862

There’s a new way to thwart distracted driving.

In addition to a breathalyzer, police in New York could soon be equipped with a “Textalyzer.”

It’s a device that can determine whether a driver involved in a crash was texting while driving.

New York is proposing a bill to allow authorities to examine phones at the scene of an accident.

To uphold personal privacy protections, officers wouldn’t have access to conversations, contacts or photos.
