Could the “Textalyzer” Stop Texting and Driving?

Texting while driving is one of the most dangerous activities on the road, and unfortunately the problem only seems to be getting worse. Law-enforcement agencies continue to seek ways to keep people safe behind the wheel, but uphill battles remain.

A new technology under proposition called the Textalyzer aims to give police more power to retroactively check if motorists involved in accidents had been using their cellphones while driving, hoping to further deter individuals from texting behind the wheel.

But the invention comes at a time when texting-and-driving incidents continue to occur, alongside a recent overall increase in road fatalities, despite tougher texting-and-driving laws in many jurisdictions, including British Columbia.

There’s no telling what new technologies will play a role in safe-driving practices in the future, yet alone if and when they will be implemented. The best preventative measure will always remain attentive and alert driving.
