Nevada will be the first state in US to introduce legislation that allows police to check whether a person using cellphone even texting while driving using a controversial technology. The authorities will use a device called ” Text Analyzer ” to enforce the law on Drivers at the scene of a car accident.

However, the use of this technology to prevent people from dispersing during driving has raised concerns about privacy.

Critics say it violates US constitutional protection against searches and seizures. Legislators questioned the effectiveness of the technology, despite the fact recognizing the threat of using the phone while driving.

Supporters of legislation say that the current laws aimed at punishing those who send messages while driving are impossible to implement.

Law enforcement officials say weak penalties do little to prevent drivers from sending text messages or using their phones in another way. This makes drivers responsible for traffic accidents, unlike drunk driving.
