I don't care what anyone says, texting at the wheel as you join a busy motorway is asking for serious trouble. I'm not going to bore you with a rant about the dangers. We are all too aware of them, or should be.

But when I saw a young man engrossed in tip-tapping away as he joined the heavy flow of M50 traffic, I had to look again to make sure I wasn't imagining things.

Apart from the madness of the exercise, one question kept coming back to me: What in God's name could be so urgent that would make it imperative for that driver to take his eyes off everything else and risk death or injury? It beggars belief.
