You’ve been in an accident. The police officer goes through the normal drill, asking for your license and registration. Then she goes a step further. “Could I have your cellphone, please?”.
New legislation proposed by a New Jersey state senator would let cops confiscate cellphones if they have “reasonable grounds” to believe that the driver was talking or texting when the wreck occurred. Officers would be required to return the phone after thumbing through its history.
We all know that texting or even using your phone while driving can and HAS resulted in bad scenarios but do you think that an officer being able to confiscate your cell phone is fair? Or do you think it’s your phone your business?
