‘Textalyzer’ To Measure Distracted Driving

New York police could soon be equipped with “Textalyzers,” devices that scan drivers’ phones to detect whether they were texting, and thus driving with distraction, in the moments leading up to an auto accident. What do you think?

“This could prove humiliating for any survivors.”

Robby Lessig • Jam Spreader


“I hold myself to a strict no-phone policy while driving, unless I happen to be texting my last will and testament.”

Brett Hartell • Megaphone Tester

“If this technology stops just one person from texting me at 3 a.m., it will have been worth it.”

Dana Kurian • Water Bottler
