Are the Government not missing out on an opportunity to solve a problem?

If someone is driving a car which isn't insured the Police can seize and possibly crush it if insurance isn't forthcoming. If the Police catch someone using a mobile phone in their hand or texting, they should have the authority to seize the phone and immediately crush it. I am sure there are very few who would risk this penalty twice. It would be more effective than a paltry £100 fine.

Update:

If the phone is on contract the holder would still have to continue with the payments. Knowing that, wouldn't it be a great incentive to use it within the law?

    what if the phone like mine is on contract so does not technically belong to them ?
