I figured someone will eventually have an abbreviated term for this, much like DWI, etc. So I'll just go with TWD for now.

Wow, how this one makes me shake my head at the completely pathetic drivers out there:

"Texting driver doesn't notice police"

The link: OH! You're pulling ME over! - Full story below:

A young motorist had a simple answer when police asked why he didn't pull over earlier during a 28km pursuit.

The 22-year-old said hadn't noticed the marked police cruiser following him because he was busy texting on his mobile phone, police say.

Officers had first noticed the man when he shot past them on the Eastlink Freeway in southwest Melbourne at a speed over 130km/h.

The 1994 Honda sedan didn't stop but kept driving south from Mulgrave to Frankston.

Leading Senior Constable Steve McIlroy said drivers needed to understand that texting while driving could have "catastrophic" results.

"It was lucky on this occasion that the driver was eventually intercepted safely," he said.

The driver had his car impounded for 48 hours and is expected to be charged on summons for various traffic offences.
