British police to start confiscating drivers' cell phones after all car accidents, no matter how minor, to check if the were using it
Police are to start seizing drivers’ mobile phones after a crash in order to check whether they were texting or calling while at the wheel.

Previously mobiles have only been taken when drivers are seriously injured or killed in a crash, but new guidelines issued by the Association of Chief Police Officers says that officers should check drivers’ mobiles even in the event of a minor shunt.

The intent is to crack down on mobile distractions while driving, with recent reports suggesting that more than 500 people are killed or seriously injured each year in the UK because drivers have been calling, texting or posting to social media.

Road safety charity Brake welcomed the new guidelines, with spokesperson Ed Morrow saying: "We are fully supportive of the efforts by the police to clamp down on mobile phone use at the wheel. Offenders need to know they will be caught, they will be prosecuted, and there will be serious consequences."

how could they PROVE someone was driving when the minor accident happened?

do all minor accidents have their exact time of occurrence known? no, they don't, so HOW can they PROVE you weren't at stop when you used the phone?

even major accidents there's a little bit of guesswork involved with the exact time of the accident.

they have cameras at all intersections, the time is on the camera.

they can just ask the other driver, what time the accident happened, they won't know what time the other person was on the phone, so they can't lie about it or anything.

first thing you should do when you have an accident, check the exact time it happens.

If they were on their phone, free $$$ insurance money.

GOOD!

I wish they would start doing it in the U.S. and impose a $1,000 fine for cell phone use while driving!
