AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law and the  executive  law,  in
  relation  to the field testing of mobile telephones and portable elec-
  tronic devices after a motor vehicle accident or  collision  involving
  damage to real or personal property, personal injury or death

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative intent. The legislature hereby finds  that  the
use  of  mobile  telephones and/or personal electronic devices has dras-
tically increased the prevalence of distracted driving. This destructive
behavior endangers the lives of every driver and passenger traveling  on
New  York  state roadways. In 2001, this legislature enacted legislation
prohibiting the use of mobile telephones  while  driving,  and  in  2009
updated  the  law to include all portable electronic devices. The execu-
tive branch initiated a public campaign against  cell  phone  use  while
driving, and has even established "text stops" along all major highways.
While these efforts have brought much needed attention to the dangers of
distracted driving, reports indicate that 67 percent of drivers admit to
continued  use  of  their cell phones while driving despite knowledge of
the inherent danger to themselves and others on  the  road.  A  10  year
trend  of  declining collisions and casualties was reversed this year as
crashes are up 14 percent, and fatalities increased 8 percent,  suggest-
ing  that  the  problem  has not only gotten worse, but is still greatly
misunderstood.
  Furthermore, law enforcement has  a  difficult  time  enforcing  these
public  safety laws, especially after an accident where it is impossible
to discern whether the operator of a motor vehicle was in fact using his
or her cell phone immediately prior to or at the time of the collision.
  Empowering our law enforcement with technology, which is able to imme-
diately determine cell phone usage without an inquiry into the  content,
