May 4, 2016 | Category: Automobile Accidents, Truck Accidents

A new word is being coined. The word is “textalyzer.” ABC News reported that in New York there is a proposed state law that would allow police to use a device called a “textalyzer” to reveal whether a driver was texting at the time of a crash. Should the bill become law in New York, the police responding to a crash would have the power to ask the drivers to turn over their cell phones.
