Michigan: Police Search Cell Phones During Traffic Stops
No doubt! I'm shocked by some of the invasion taking place under the guise of security.
If we're so worried about this then we need to educate & parent well enough that our kids will stand up for their safety if in a car where the driver is texting. Every late model phone also has text to speech applications installed; learn to use them. More policing isn't the answer to problems, it's parenting, individual responsibility, personal advocacy, & education.
Speaking relatively & by volume, text messages resulting in auto accidents is extremely rare. Statistically - goats are more dangerous to drivers than text messages.
There's a reason why these cases are impossible to prosecute: because they're ridiculous & do nothing to serve the public.
Since when do we infringe with precedence upon the rights of billions in order to pretend we're saving three or even 300?
Since 9/11? Or maybe battling the nanny is a timeless episode...
