Don't text and drive

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Comment -

I was rid­ing down the M2 over­tak­ing a pick-up truck when it started to wan­der across di­ag­o­nally in front of me, I braked, hooted and shouted. The driver was tex­ting, can you be­lieve that? Tex­ting. As soon as he looked up and saw me and that he was out of his lane, he dropped the phone in his lap look­ing very sheep­ish. Point is, should I re­port it? Are the po­lice able to do any­thing or even will­ing to do any­thing? Some day some­one is go­ing to lose their life for a text mes­sage, and it was very nearly me.

Pete Bat­tersby, email Ed: Yes. Note his reg num­ber and tell the po­lice. It’s il­le­gal and we shouldn’t let idiot driv­ers get away with it.
