Phone searches after crashes? Nevada bill calls for police to investigate people’s devices

A proposed bill in Nevada seeks to further discourage using a phone while driving.

It calls for allowing police to use a device to determine if a handheld wireless phone was used at the time of a crash.

Existing law there generally prohibits using phones that aren’t hands-free while driving.

If drivers don’t allow the device to be used, police would have to seize the driver’s license or permit and order it to be suspended for 90 days, the proposal says.
