Texting and driving? Your next traffic stop could include a Textalyzer


COBB COUNTY, Ga. – It happens every day: 9 people are killed and 1,000 more are injured in crashes involving a distracted driver.

Those crusading against distracted driving believe new technology can help catch violators who crash.

We’re taking an in-depth look at the new technology and hearing from law enforcement, local lawmakers and attorneys about how this could impact Georgia drivers, today on Channel 2 Action News at 5.

A new device can help police confirm right at the crash site whether a driver’s been texting. It’s like a breathalyzer for your phone — it’s called a Textalyzer.

Jim Gray, the CEO of forensic technology maker Cellebrite, which is the developer of the Textalyzer, said his device could be a game-changer.

But some are raising questions about safety vs. privacy
