What the hell?
Police in New York state are hunting down texting drivers with a device known as a 'textalyzer'. What is a 'textalyzer' you ask? It's a device that allows an officer to check if a cellphone was used before an accident.
Here’s how it works. Either police find your phone at the scene of a crash, or you hand it over yourself. They can then plug a cord in to your phone and attach it to their tablet using the appropriate software.
The ‘textalyzer” manufacturer says the device doesn't allow cops to read your dirty texts, but it'll let them know what you were up to before the accident. Activities include texting, emailing or posting on social media.
