DO you think we should confiscate the mobile phones of drivers who text at the wheel?

According to an AA survey of 20,000 drivers, 71 per cent of those asked think police should be able to either seize devices or disable them for a month. They believe it’s more of a deterrent than a £200 fine and six points on licences and I completely agree.

Drivers who text obviously think more of their phones than of either money or other people’s safety. So, we need to hit them where it hurts, perhaps with persistent offenders losing their phones for good.
