I actually agree with this.

I travel a lot and find many other drivers constantly unaware of surrounding events as they are fixated on their phone conversations, or are texting.
I believe that in the state of Connecticut, this law is already on the books.

After a crash, yes. Not just because they have "cause".

Agreed to a point. However, why should we wait for an accident, with injuries and possible death, to demand the phone. I would suggest observation of phone misuse or improper driving while using the phone could be a legitimate cause to impound it.

But the police had better have a dash cam to prove their accusations.

We have got to do something about driving while texting or we will all lose our ability to use the phone in the car all together. Pulling someone over for texting while driving will require proof. Impounding the phone can provide the timeline and proof of texting, not just talking, on the phone. So it works both ways.

Give the d**kh*ds a ticket for misuse of the phone, and call it a usage fee, smile, and say, "Have a nice day." Yes. Make sure the misuse is documented in a video.

I agree with this, but subject to these conditions: this phone check will only be used to see if the driver was on the phone at the time of the crash. It will not be used to access other information on the phone without a warrant.

Agreed.

The phone should be seized to prevent altering the evidence, but privacy of content should be secured. Therefore, in every case, a warrant should be required to open the phone.

Police can already get phone call records.....

~ Mobile phone tracking. ... In most states, police can get many kinds of cellphone data without obtaining a warrant. Law-enforcement records show, police can use initial data from a tower dump to ask for another court order for more information, including addresses, billing records and logs of calls, texts and locations.
