There are many tools and tests police might end up using when investigating a crash scene. A bill seeks to add a new distracted-driving-related test to the toolbox of police in New York state.
The new tool is called a “textalyzer”. Purportedly, this tool would allow police to scan a phone for signs that a driver may have been using the phone while driving. The bill would authorize police in the state to use a textalyzer in accident scene investigations. No state yet has such a law in place.
