I'D like to suggest a way which I believe would eradicate the use of mobile phones whilst driving and also similarly stop drink driving.

Confiscate and crush the car, ban the driver for life, fine them at least £5,000 and then imprison them for one year.

With no remission or visitors allowed.

The critics-in-waiting and do gooders will have a field day with this, but it would have the desired effect of getting the message across and it would save many unnecessary deaths and injuries.
