LONDON (KRON) — If you get into any kind of a wreck, even a fender bender, the Bobbies will seize your phone in England.

New regulations require traffic officers to confiscate the cell phones of both drivers immediately after an accident to determine if either driver was yakking on the phone while driving.

Also under the new rules, people caught texting while driving could lose their licenses after just the second offense.

Traffic safety experts are applauding the move while some privacy advocates say the police are going too far.
